The Elgin Parks and Recreation Department is busy planning the 29th Annual Valley Fox Trot Race scheduled to take place on Monday, May 29 in downtown Elgin at 8:00 a.m. Sanctioned by the Chicago Area Runners Association, the Fox Trot includes a 10 mile run, 5 K run, and a 2 mile fun walk and Corporate Challenge. More than 3,000 people of all ages and from all over the mid-west are expected to attend the event. Awards, refreshments and the Kiwanis “Bottomless Pancake Breakfast” are great reasons to come on out and enter the event!
The Fox Trot provides funds for the Elgin Parks and Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund. The funds provide financial assistance to children who wish to participate in recreation programs and ensures that children whose families face economic difficulty are able to take part in wholesome, educational activities.
