Race #2. We've added another lap which will test the athletes this year. The course has reversed direction and is running clockwise this year. It promises to determine the true marathoner on this deceivingly challenging circuit. The Battle the Bear race moved to Sunday so that competitors will have a cleaner course and less traffic.
Saturday May 7th. Race start 9:00 am. No license required. Saturday race day registration and check-in available at Bear Creek. Tents can be set up along the course at feed zone at Coyote Crossing. Team vehicles can park in Expo parking up top if you're in by 7:00am. Racer parking down below. Races will start at bottom of road. RME competitors will race six laps, while Junior RME and Half-Marathon competitors race three.

The fast 10-mile loop that encircles Bear Creek Lake Park features a taste of speed, with five short punishing climbs and rolling big ring singletrack. Neutral support feed zone at the end of each lap. The Start/Finish and Expo will be at Coyote Crossing.
