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.
- Saturday, May 1st, 4:00 PM – 1-mile race
- Saturday, May 1st evening – 5-mile race
- Sunday, May 2nd morning – 10-mile race
