Exciting news! Registration is now open for the Community First Fox Cities Marathon. And, as the saying goes, there’s no time like the present to make your commitment. We encourage runners and walkers to take advantage of early registration rates before prices increase at the end of May.
In addition to saving money, consider other benefits to getting a jump start on race registration:
1. Something to strive for.
It’s official! That confirmation page is your motivation to begin working toward your goal. Mark your calendar, map out your training plan, and keep your eyes on the prize.
2. More time to prepare.
The more gradual your approach to training, the more efficient. Now you have the extra time to build the strength and endurance you’ll need to reach the finish line.
3. A chance to get social.
Now that you’re invested, make it fun! Join fellow racers for local training runs, encourage your friends to sign up, and announce your entry on social media: #fcm2023, #foxcitiesmarathon
4. Non-profit support.
Every adult entry in the Ascension 5k race results in a $5 donation to the St. Elizabeth Hospital Cancer Fund to support cancer research and services. Let’s start registration early and spread the word to maximize this incredible opportunity.
5. A sense of fulfillment.
Finishing a marathon, half marathon, relay marathon, 10k or 5k is a notable accomplishment, and one you should be proud of. Don’t wait to kick off the journey!
Get in on the fun, and support local non-profits in the process. There are so many good reasons to start your race journey today.
