Fire up, Blugolds, and save the date! On May 3, the 2015 Eau Claire Marathon's full and half-marathon races will follow courses that take runners through the UW-Eau Claire campus.
- Has running a full or half marathon been on your bucket list? Check that box when you join the 100 UW-Eau Claire students who'll be participating in the race as part of their distance running class. They're encouraging fellow students, alumni, and faculty and staff to join them, and all Blugolds will be able to purchase a special Blugold-themed technical shirt to wear on race day. (Note: Training groups for runners of all ability levels will be meeting at Haas Fine Arts Center at 8 a.m. each Saturday from Jan. 31-May 2. Email Tracy Yengo or Matt Evans for more information.)
- Are marathons more of a spectator sport for you? Plan now to come to campus for one of the most scenic vantage points for watching the race and cheering on the competitors as they pass the 24-mile mark. Water and cheering stations and lots of fun activities are being planned.
