NEW for 2017! Bib Personalization

We’re excited to announce race bib personalization for the 2017 Fox Valley Marathon Races!
Here’s how it works:
Runners may select any 8 alpha numeric characters for their race bib. These characters will replace the number on the race bib. Please note the following:
  • Characters are restricted to letters, digits, and dashes only.
  • Personalization cannot be all digits.
  • Must be family-friendly. We reserve the right to remove inappropriate entries.

Each bib is unique regardless of race distance chosen. Personalization requests are available on a first come/first served basis, so REGISTER NOW to reserve YOUR preferred personalization.

If you’re already registered, you can add a bib personalization to your current registration here.


Please read these things to CAREFULLY CONSIDER before you register:

  • You must be 18 years or older on race day
  • You must be able to maintain a 13:45 per mile pace (3 hour Half Marathon, 6 hour marathon)
  • There is no Race-Day bib pickup unless pre-selected on-line ($30 fee)
  • There are no registration refunds, deferrals, or runner transfers for any reason.
  • Race Flex Option™ is the ONLY way to transfer between races any time up to packet pickup. You cannot upgrade to the Race Flex Option™ after you have registered. Choose Race Flex WHEN you register.
  • Race Flex Option™ allows a one-time transfer to Last Chance BQ.2 Marathon – Chicagoland while BQ.2 registration remains open
  • Limited to one General Registration per person
  • Falsifying name or date-of-birth will forfeit your registration
  • Attempted bib sale will forfeit your registration
