The course of the Bearathon starts and finishes at McLane stadium and will highlight the new Rosenbalm Fountain on Bayor’s campus, the Suspension Bridge, Cameron Park and the Brazos river. It will provide a scenic and challenging course for participants.

Timing chips will be used for an accurate measure of the time and hard work you put in the course. If improper care takes places of the timing chip, you may not receive results. As such, be sure to follow proper instruction. Moreover, if you choose not to wear a chip (i.e. your bib) you cannot be considered for an awards and will not be included in any results.

All Bearathon half marathon finishers will receive a finishers shirt and a medal.
