BRIDGE2BRIDGE Eau Claire Marathon Race Series

May 1st, 2021 - May 2nd, 2021 | Downtown Eau Claire | Location: Wisconsin

With so much yet unknown, we don’t feel the traditional Eau Claire Marathon Weekend can safely be held in May 2021.  The ECM Committee has decided to postpone the Eau Claire Marathon Weekend to September 25-26, 2021.  Many of our 2020 virtual runners loved the fall-beauty (and temps!) surrounding the ECM course in September so we are excited to try this in 2021.

We’ve listened, and we know, that runners are READY to RUN IN-PERSON again!  Our committee brainstormed ways to safely run in-person in spring, our ideas include a smaller capacity race and staggered starts with a limited number of runners.  This allows us to introduce a NEW race to Eau Claire for May 1-2, 2021...the Bridge2Bridge Race Series!  

The Bridge2Bridge Race Series is three races over two days - runners can choose their favorite distance or complete the series of three:

-       Saturday, May 1st, 4:00 PM – 1-mile race (this race is perfect for adults or kids, some start times will even allow dogs)

-       Saturday, May 1st evening – 5-mile race (with an emphasize on the lit Eau Claire bridges)

-       Sunday, May 2nd morning – 10-mile race

Take the SWEET16 Challenge by participating in all three races.

All courses will take place along the Chippewa River State Trail and highlight many of our favorite bridges, even some new ones!  Grand Avenue bridge, Lake Street bridge and Chippewa River State bridge, in addition to the UWEC Footbridge, the High Bridge and the Phoenix Park bridge.
