Join us in supporting the 8th annual Running of the Bears on Saturday, April 8th. This year’s event again includes chip-timed 5 mile, 5K, and 1 mile races, all run through the beautiful hills of Montgomery.
Running of the Bears is hosted by the Montgomery High School Bearbackers. As the all sports booster club for MHS athletics, Bearbackers has provided nearly three quarters of a million dollars in scholarships, equipment, banquets, and facility improvements to both MHS and MJHS since its inception in 1978, with approximately $50,000 in scholarships awarded in 2016. Bearbackers supports all of the 60+ sports teams fielded by Montgomery High School each year and awards scholarships to athletes across all of these programs.
We expect over 300 runners again this year, along with spouses, parents, and friends. This event presents a unique opportunity to support our MHS student athletes while also marketing your product or services to the Montgomery community. As sponsor of the 2017 Running of the Bears, your business will be recognized as premier organization in our community and as a leader in supporting MHS, MJHS, and our student athletes.
Running of the Bears is an unbeatable way to support our wonderful student athletes at MHS while benefitting your business through exposure to the patrons of Montgomery. We hope that we can count on your support for our student athletes through your sponsorship of this great event. We look forward to seeing you there!
