Hear it straight from a (Bearathon) runner's mouth:
"I had run several marathons, but Bearathon was my first half, and I found out why it's considered the hardest--the Cameron Park Hills! The race was fun and Student Foundation is such an easy place to give to because you know where your gift is going. I'll be there next spring, and I'll be prepared for the hills." Gayle Veitenheimer
"Bearathon exceeded our expectations, both in how challenging it was and how much fun we had. It was really rewarding to see my son start to realize that he could do it--he could go a distance that was farther than what he's ever gone before. Bearathon was steps in our journey, both personally and also in our development in getting to run another race. I thought the event was really well done."
