Best Run/Walk

1st Place: RCU Charity Classic
2nd Place: The Color Run
3rd Place: Eau Claire Marathon


For those who need a good race, all three of our winners offer opportunities to run and help out the community. The RCU Charity Classic has several options: a 10K walk/run, a 2-mile walk/run and a one-half and one-quarter mile children’s race for youngsters who want to get involved. This year, the RCU Charity Classic raised $20,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Greater Chippewa Valley. If you’re looking for a blast of fun, then you should check out The Color Run. It’s a fairly new 5K in which you start dressed only in white and every kilometer get covered with a new coat of colorful powdered paint. For the more traditional race, there’s the Eau Claire Marathon, which in addition to the 26.2-mile route also features a half marathon, a marathon relay, and a 5K. Whatever kind of challenge you’re looking for, Eau Claire as got you covered. –Mike Seitz
