Batavia is about to get even more exciting this fall as runners and walkers of all ages and abilities take to the Fox River Trail for the 10th Annual Bat Race. Organized by Batavia United Way, this heartwarming fundraising event combines fitness, fun, and a dash of Halloween flair as part of the famous Bat Fest celebrations.

Proud Bat Race Sponsor For the 3rd Year Running

At Fire 'n' Ice Heating & Cooling, Inc., we’re always grateful to live and work in such a fantastic community. When we’re not coming to the rescue of our customers with our HVAC services, we’re passionate about getting involved in local events and giving a little something back.
That’s why we’re proud to be sponsoring the Bat Race for the third year running (no pun intended) and supporting Batavia United Way every step of the way. We’ll be putting on our running and walking shoes and joining the crowds on the day, spreading good vibes and helping to make a difference.

You can get involved, too! Registration is now open, so why not sign up and be part of something great? The race is open to individuals, teams, and families, and in keeping with the Halloween theme, costumes are always encouraged. We love seeing everybody dressed up in their spooky finery and having a blast!

2. 5K Run/Walk: Not the Usain Bolt type? No problem! Grab your friends and family, and enjoy a leisurely stroll or a light jog around the 5K course. It’s all about having fun and being part of the action.
