Running with the Bears Marathon, Half and 10K

August 17, 2019

Running with the Bears is Plumas County's brand new Boston Qualifier, and a fundraiser for foster children served by Mountain Circle Family Services. The Bears is a uniquely rural experience; goody bags, for instance, are filled with locally made products and, of course, bear bells! As runners cross the finish line, they’re greeted with an ice cold beer from a local brewery (UnderCoverAleWorks), and a massage with a view of the whole valley (juice, coffee, water and hydration drinks also available of course). It’s also one of few western races in August; higher elevations bring cooler temperatures- In 2011, the race-day low was 46 degrees, so be sure to bring your jacket! This event WILL sell out by early August, so please register early online at or call Josie Litchfield at 530-284-7007.
