Running With The Bears ~ 300 Yard Fun Run
(Because after 300 yards it isn't fun anymore)
Presented by First National Bank Alaska
You've heard of  Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Running of the Reindeer in Anchorage... now ... Bear Paw brings you ....

"Running With The Bears " in Eagle River!

This “bear-ly” a marathon 300-yard fun run was started, because after 300 yards, it isn’t fun any more!  This is running as it should be done . . . as briefly as possible!  This race should appeal to even the laziest of lounge lizards.  You could win a round trip for 2 to Seward on the Alaska Railroad and many other great prizes!  There will never be an easier way to get a race T-shirt this summer.  Think how great it will look on you when you’re back home watching TV!   Race check-in starts at Noon on Sunday.         

The event begins with the “the Warm-Up Stretch” starts at 1PM with our friends from Jazzercise; the race starts promptly at 1:05.  You have 30 minutes to complete this race course.... you can crawl, roll, stroll, walk, or run with the Bears (and we promise... there will be bears!) And watch out... if you get "bit" you need to check-in at First National's Aid Station!

All participants receive a T-shirt (while supplies last) courtesy of First National Bank Alaska and chances to win great prizes,  Pre-registration fee is $15.  Race day registration is $20.  You must be present to win!
Pre-registration can be done at the Chamber office through Friday July 10th and at the Mainstage on Saturday July 11th. Sunday is late day registrations which will be taken up until race time with late registration fee at the mainstage.

Think.... Costumes and a Beary Fun Alaskan Experience....
