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.

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.
