About This Activity

Run locally, think globally! Montessori Academy, Batavia, Illinois hosts this first annual event that spans two bridges and two continents. 100% of all registration fees go to important causes: locally, Tri-City Family Services; globally: Run for Congo Women.

Come run or walk our 5K, 10K or one of our three childrens'; races and support families in need in your community and across the globe. The 5K starts at 7:00 am, the 10K starts at 7:30 am, the Toddler Trot starts at 9:00 am, the Junior Jog starts at 9:15 am, and the Youth Mile starts at 9:45 am.

This race has a beautiful, scenic course that is on a bike path along the Fox River. The 10K crosses two bridges, so the racers will be on both sides of the river. The 5K is an out and back course that crosses the river and comes back. The Toddler Trot and Junior Jog will be held on the campus of the Montessori Academy while the Youth Mile will utilize the bike path along the river.

Race day parking and race starts will be at the VFW in Batavia, IL.
