2021 Eau Claire Marathon to be held in-person, but there’s a catch


EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) - As you know, the Eau Claire Marathon went virtual in 2020 due to the pandemic. This year, however, that will change.

"We will be racing together, in-person, in 2021," said Emi Uelmen, race director.

However, there's a catch. The event will not be held on the traditional first weekend of May. Instead, the event will be held on the last weekend of September (25 and 26).

That doesn't mean nothing is happening on that first weekend of May. The Eau Claire Marathon will host a new COVID-friendly racing series called Bridge2Bridge. This will include three races.

You can learn more about the racing series and big race weekend by heading to the Eau Claire Marathon website.
