LACE 'EM UP! THE RACE IS ON!
Pat Toutant, local runner, in partnership with Scheels, have committed to reviving the Eau Claire Marathon. The date will remain May 4, as it was originally slated. The route will remain virtually the same, starting and ending at Carson Park.
We are taking this on in the interest of continuing a well-run event which gives back to local charities and community businesses which promote health/fitness/kids/community.
Race Director Pat Toutant, "it's important for me to see this quality event continue. The previous directors have started the momentum for creating something really special for this community. It would be a shame not to allow this to blossom into it's full potential. For me, an event like this creates a venue for people to change their lifestyle. In partnering with Scheels, Charter Bank and Festival Foods it makes our foundation that much more solid for the future of this event."
