STROLLERS, DOGS & WATER
We encourage the use of jogging strollers along the trails of this family-friendly 5K!

While there will not be water stations along the course, we do offer water at the end of the race.
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Proceeds from the Bear Run will benefit Tahoma High School distance running programs administered by the Tahoma Cross Country Running Club. The funds fill a wide range of needs for our large team of athletes including support for athletes and families who need help with team participation and summer camp fees, multiple scholarships awarded each year, and travel expenses beyond that available from the school district budget. These kids work hard and run hard all year while maintaining exceptional grade point averages. They deserve our support!
