This is a course specifically designed to get YOU to Boston.
Featuring a net downhill, (thanks to a gentle grade on the 0.3 mile starting spur), the 3.05 mile loop course offers plenty of shade, scenic views of parks and forest preserves bordering the river, and a glimpse of downtown Batavia.
Due to the completion of the new bridge that spans the Fox River, course modifications were required in order for the course to meet the proper distance. ALL RUNNERS, new and veteran BQ runners, are responsible for understanding the course and tracking their laps. Please note the following:
The paved trail along both sides of the Fox Valley River is nearly pancake flat.
The path, river proximity, dawn starting time, and average lows in the mid 50’s make for a high probability of ideal racing conditions: cool temps and low wind.
And the 8 loop course means 16 Aid Stations, 8 shots at the Elite Water Bottle table (yes, you are treated like an elite runner in this one), and plenty of opportunities for race-provided gel and of course, your own cheering section.
