Best Sports/Recreation Event Of The Past Year

1st Place: RCU Charity Classic
2nd Place: Eau Claire Marathon
3rd Place: U.S. National Kubb Championship

Nearly 1,200 racers ran or walked in the 19th annual RCU Charity Classic, which over the summer raised $18,000 for area homeless shelters including Sojourner House, Grace Place, and the Family Place. Perhaps the “feel good” aspect of the race made it your first choice among sports and recreation events. The Eau Claire Marathon, which came in second, provides one of the most scenic running views of our area and is a qualifying race for the Boston Marathon. And third but not least, is Eau Claire’s own U.S. National Kubb Championship, the largest kubb tournament outside of Europe. It’s said we have the Vikings, and not the football team, to thank for this Nordic lawn game. –Barbara Arnold
