The Eau Claire Marathon is taking place this weekend in the downtown Eau Claire area and will result in some road closures.  If you live, work, or travel in the area, familiarize yourself with these closures, give yourself extra travel time, and please use caution - watch for runners and their fans along the various race routes so we can all have a safe and happy weekend.

Race maps can be seen here:

To those of you visiting for this Boston Marathon qualifying event: WELCOME to Eau Claire!  We're glad you're here, and hope you enjoy your stay.

Please note, some closures are short term while others may in place through Sunday.   

Use Care:  Elevated levels on the rivers in Eau Claire may mean that some trails and surrounding areas and underpasses are closed, DO NOT go around barriers or enter flooded areas - flood waters of any level can contain debris and generate currents that are stronger, faster & more unpredictable than normal conditions. This causes unstable bank conditions and makes recreational use of the river unsafe.
