Fox Valley Winter Challenge Trail Series

You can do one, two, or all three!

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the inability of government overlords to understand that activities conducted outside pose an insignificant threat to contracting COVID-19 we will not be able to conduct our popular race series in 2020.

We understand the disappointment on your part and sympathize. This situation hurts our organization in so many ways not to mention our race charities who will not be benefiting from any proceeds we generously give each year.


Keep training, eat healthy to keep your immune system strong, get plenty of sleep for recovery!   

We will see you in 2021!
