Leader-Telegram Buckshot Run
- August 29, 2017 – September 02, 2017
- Recurring weekly on Tuesday, Saturday
Join the Leader-Telegram in celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the Buckshot Run benefiting the local Special Olympics program August 29th and September 2nd. This 2 and 5 mile run/walk in and around beautiful Carson Park and downtown Eau Claire is ranked one of the top 10 races in Wisconsin. It’s family-friendly yet tough enough for hardcore competitors. Ages 5-85 typically participate each year and average attendance is 1,200 people.
Tickets cost $20-35 and 100% of money raised stays locally to help 1,000 Special Olympics athletes with intellectual disabilities train and compete in sports year-round. It’s a life-changing opportunity for these kids and adults. After the race, enjoy concessions, music, race results and an awards ceremony during the Party in the Park.
