5K and 10K Race and Fun for the Whole Family
The Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation will host its 15th Annual Fox Trot 5K and 10K race on Saturday, April 11th, 2015 at the Batavia Riverwalk (Island Avenue & Houston Street in downtown Batavia). The 10K route was a success last year, so we are doing it again!
Both races feature courses along the Fox River in downtown Batavia. Participants can register online prior to the event or at the event on race day. The start time for both the 5K and 10K IS 8 a.m. There are awards for the winners of both races in all age groups following the race.
The Fox Trot also features a non-competitive Kids’ Fun Run. There are two races designed especially for children. Preschoolers and children through first grade are encouraged to try the Junior Jog (approximately ¼ mile.) Second graders through fifth graders are encouraged to try the Youth Mile event. The kids’ events begin at approximately 8:45 a.m.
Pre-registration for all events is encouraged. The pre-registration cost for the 5K is $25 per runner and the preregistration cost for the 10K is $35 per runner. There is no charge for either Kids’ Fun Run, but a donation of $10 per child is suggested. Funds raised through this event will support Batavia schools and other educational opportunities for local families. The first 350 registered participants are guaranteed a t-shirt and goodie bag. You may register online at www.signmeup.com/98137. In-person registration will also be accepted on race day from 6:30a- 7:40a at the event.
