2019 Race Update

On race morning we made the difficult decision to cancel the Community First Fox Cities Marathon due to lightning.  Everything we do for this day, is so you can chase your goals and write your story.  We are disappointed that Mother Nature stood in the way of putting the finishing touches on your journey.  But that doesn’t mean the journey is over.

We are going Virtual! (Extended to October 22)

You have trained and you are ready!  Let’s finish what you started.  Before October 22, 2019 complete your full, half or relay leg on your own, in another race, or on a treadmill.  Then, tell us about it so we can celebrate with you and send you the medal from this year’s Community First Fox Cities Marathon presented by Miron Construction.

For fun, and so our community can cheer you on, take a selfie and post it to our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages or tag it #VirtualFCM.
