Racing Green: A Cup-Free Race
We are encouraging runners to run cup-free this year! Learn more.
Additionally, Bearathon has partnered with Virtual Race Bags to produce a 'virtual goodie bag' in an effort to 'go green' and provide additional benefits to our participants. As a participant of this year's event you will receive an email invitation to the Virtual Race Bag prior to the event giving you access to the bag. In the race bag you will find an array of valuable information including our official event guide, exclusive offers, coupons, giveaways and messages from our sponsors.
But wait, there's more! Immediately after the event, the race bag updates to include race results. Now participants will receive another email invitation to visit their 'results bag' and also have a final opportunity to take advantage of the offers and goodies before the bag closes.
So watch for the Virtual Race Bag and Get Your Green On!
Note: You will need to pick your bib up at bib pick-up on Friday, March 22nd or race-day morning. However, you will receive all paper materials via this virtual race bag.
