Best Run/Walk

Chippewa Valley voters picked the area’s most serious run as the Best Run/Walk. The Eau Claire Marathon – a scenic Boston Marathon qualifier – starts and ends in Carson Park, crosses 11 bridges, and has a big party at the finish. The motto of Royal Credit Union’s Rock the Riverfront is “Run, walk, bounce, or bop for it!” With food trucks, live music, and balloon animals, you can’t go wrong. Eau Claire’s largest run/walk event, the Festival Foods Turkey Trot, came in third. Featuring a 5-mile, a 2-mile, and even a dog jog, this trot lets you preemptively burn off all your Thanksgiving calories – well, some of them, anyway. – Bonni Knight
