Phoenix Park



THE HALF MARATHON START • Similar to the Full Marathon but traveling down 5th • Like we said this morning, as we, over the years, have developed this course, it focuses on emphasizing the beauty of the city, particularly it’s bridges and rivers, and our new start certainly embraces that!! When you stand on the Madison Street Bridge and look North and South, the view of the river is spectacular. From a runner standpoint, it will trigger many emotions which all are tied to your task at hand. It suggests POWER but at the same time reminds us of PERSISTENCE and CALMNESS.  Our course re-design was not taken lightly and we think the changes will enhance not only the runners but spectators experience as well. Centering around the Phoenix Park Area, spectators will be able to witness runners as they start, as they loop through early on in the race as well as before they head down Barstow and again as they finish..... THAT significantly enhances the runners experience!! #runec

And remember, the Eau Claire Half Marathon gets to start ONE HOUR EARLIER IN 2020 with an 8:15 AM start time!

Awards will be handed out in Phoenix Park following the race. View last year's results.
