Join us Saturday, April 8th for the 8th annual Running of the Bears presented by McDonalds of Montgomery. Running of the Bears is hosted by Montgomery High School BearBackers, the all sports booster club raising money to provide equipment and facilities improvements as well as scholarships for our outstanding student athletes. About $50,000 in scholarships were awarded last year.
The 2017 event will feature a kids area with inflatables and Ronald McDonald as our official race starter. Running of the Bears offers both 5K and 5M competitive chip timed races beginning at 8:30 am, and a 1 mile family fun run/walk that starts at 8:00 am. The course winds through the beautiful rolling hills of historic Montgomery, birthplace of the Texas flag, and will feature awards in over 30 categories for the 5K and 5M, free food and drinks for runners, entertainment, and an activity area featuring our local business sponsors. Every child participating in the 1 mile race receives a medal.
