DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — DuPage Medical Group (DMG) and the Fox Valley Marathon announced a multi-year partnership that focuses on both organizations’ shared interest in community health and wellness. As part of the partnership, DMG will serve as title sponsor and official medical provider of the Fox Valley Marathon, Half Marathon and Fall Final 20™.
As official medical provider, DMG physicians, nurses and physical therapists will staff the main medical tent and medical aid stations along the race courses to evaluate and administer care to injured runners.
With more than 120 total suburban Chicago locations, DMG has a presence across the Fox Valley area with clinic locations in Aurora, Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles. DMG has plans to continue its growth in the Fox Valley community by adding new locations.
“As we continue to grow our footprint in the Fox Valley area, this partnership gives us an opportunity outside of our clinic doors to inspire our patients to live a healthy, active lifestyle,” said Donna Cooper, DMG Chief Operating Officer. “We’re here to provide high quality care to our patients, but we’re also committed to improving the health and wellness of the Fox Valley community as a whole.”
The 10th Annual Fox Valley Marathon Races will take place on Sunday, September 22, 2019. The event, which includes a full marathon, half marathon and the Fall Final 20™, begins in downtown St. Charles and takes runners on a scenic route along the Fox River through Geneva, Batavia, Aurora and North Aurora. Combining a small race atmosphere with big race amenities, the Fox Valley Marathon Races draw runners looking to qualify for next year’s Boston Marathon, complete their final 20-mile training run before the Chicago Marathon in October or run their first marathon.
“We’re excited to welcome DMG as the official title sponsor of the Fox Valley Marathon, Half Marathon and Fall Final 20™,” said Dave Sheble, co-founder and race director of the Fox Valley Marathon Races. “We’re looking forward to working together to improve the health and wellness of our community.”

About the Fox Valley Marathon Races
In its 2010 inaugural event, the Fox Valley Marathon Races quickly became Chicago’s premier west suburban running event and one of the best in the Midwest. Its marathon, half marathon and Fall Final 20™ races showcase the towns, parks and paved trails along the Fox River from St. Charles to Aurora, and draw runners from across the country and internationally. The fast, flat and shady course make it a favorite for all runners — from first timers to Boston hopefuls. The Fox Valley Marathon was named “Best Marathon” in 2012 by Chicago magazine, a Top 25 Midwest Marathon by Chicago Athlete Magazine and a Top 30 U.S. Boston Qualifier by MarathonGuide.com.
