Course Information

The 3.21 mile loop course offers plenty of shade, scenic views of parks and forest preserves bordering the river, and a glimpse of downtown Batavia.

The paved trail along both sides of the Fox Valley River is nearly pancake flat.

The path, river proximity, dawn starting time, and average lows in the mid 50’s make for a high probability of ideal racing conditions:  Cool temps and low wind.
