Fostering the Development and Preservation of Trails and Greenways in the Greater Fox Cities Region!

Become a Top Fox by participating in the 5k run/walk or the 8 mile bike ride – or you can participate in both the run and the ride! The Top Fox 5k run/walk has both competitive and family-friendly divisions and features a diverse course along the Fox River on a glorious wooded trail, through Peabody Park and quiet residential streets.

You can also choose to do the Top Fox 8 Mile Bike Ride starting at the Refuge (formerly Monte Alverno ) onto the Little Chute River Trail, to the Little Chute Windmill and ending at the Bakers Outlet for some really good “dutch treats.” The Little Chute Windmill will be open for FREE tours to all Top Fox participants.
