The race begins at 10:00 a.m. at the Olympic Arch in front of the Eau Claire YMCA (101 3 Street SW). We also offer a 9:30 start for people who anticipate taking longer than 2 1/2 hours to complete the event. The course will close at 12:45 allowing 3 hours and 15 minutes to complete the distance (with a 9:30 start).
There is plenty of construction on pathways along the Bow River and we have adapted the route accordingly. The updated map is below. We will plan this same route for 2019 but it is always subject to change due to construction.
There will be three aid stations approximately every 5 km serving water and Gatorade.
There is plenty of street parking that is fee on Sundays. There is also a surface lot accessible from 2 Ave SW and an underground lot accessible from 2 St SW. Both are $3 on weekends.
