Best Run/Walk

1st Place: Eau Claire Marathon
2nd Place: RCU Charity Classic
3rd Place: Festival Foods Turkey Trot

When you’re trying to stay fit, it can be tough to find motivation sometimes. But luckily for us, the Chippewa Valley hosts dozens of races for all kinds of runners year round. It’s a lot easier when you’re doing it together. The Eau Claire Marathon is one of the most popular; it takes folks throughout Eau Claire and shows off all of its beauty. Plus, there is the option to run a half marathon or 5K if the full 26.2-mile race too much. The RCU Charity Classic, which offers 10K, two-mile, and children’s races, is another great option if you’re looking for a run. This past year, participants raised more than $16,000 for Beaver Creek Reserve. There’s always the Festival Foods Turkey Trot as well, which offers a five-mile run and a two-mile “dog jog.” —Mike Seitz
