Are you a fan of running? Is sweating profusely and challenging your muscles something you love? Good, me neither!

So, for those of us who prefer a chill lifestyle, May 7th is a great chance to come together at the EC Marathon and applaud those who can outrun us. Whether you know a runner, are looking to watch some crazy athletes or just want to enjoy a beautiful spring afternoon, head over to the Visit Eau Claire Cheering Party! The event provides a fun place to spend the morning mingling with others while you wait out the race. Come grab a beer or soda while listening to Midwest Family Broadcasting 9 AM – 11 AM, and rock out to Irie Sol 11 AM – 2 PM. Even if you can’t make it for the entire event, feel free to stop by and say hello to some lovely community members.

What do I need to know?

  • The VEC Cheering party is located on Water Street at the 5th Avenue parking lot across from Dooley’s Pub. Just look for the cheering crowd.
  • If watching other people run makes you hungry, Mogies, Mona Lisa’s and Dooley’s are the best restaurants to grab a bite!
  • It’s never too early for a cocktail! Bloody Mary’s, beer, soft drinks, and coffee will be available to purchase from said restaurants.
