"The Bear" 5-mile Uphill Climb - MacRae Meadows

The arduous 5-mile foot race begins at the base of the mountain in Linville. The gun fires and more than 800 runners take-off full tilt up to the Swinging Bridge near the peak of Grandfather. The runners will pass through the Meadows and circle the track on their way to the top. The winners will be brought back down to the East Meadow for the awards ceremony.

For registration and race specifics visit the official website of "The Bear".

No onsite registration this year the day of the race! All bear runners must register on-line early to run.
