Come enjoy the beautiful hills of Montgomery, TX !! Join us on Saturday, April 20, 2013 for the 4th annual Running of the Bears in historic Montgomery, Texas, the birthplace of the Texas flag. The run has three planned races: 1) a competitive chip-timed 5-mile race, 2) a competitive chip-timed 5K, and 3) a just-for-fun 1-mile family run/walk. The starting line is located at Ransom's Steakhouse near downtown Montgomery, and the route takes you along the surrounding rolling country roads.
The 1-miler will start at 8:00am, with the 5-miler and 5K going off around 8:30.
Moisture wicking T-shirts (Dri-Fit style). All kids participating in the 1-miler will receive a participation medal, and the 5-miler and 5K will award first, second, and third place trophies for male and female overall finishers.
