Running with the Bears Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K. Summer means hot weather but when it's August in Plumas County bring a warm jacket and your bear bells! (Don't worry, we'll give you the bells). Average race day low: 46! Join us for a Marathon, Half Marathon or 10k surrounded by the mountains of beautiful Plumas County and Indian Valley! Come qualify for Boston with your dog, your earphones, and an after-party that can't be beat. This is Plumas County - we don't run by the same rules! Running with the Bears is a uniquely rural experience; don't expect any bathrooms lines or traffic - the only distractions might be the pair of mating hawks at Mile 7 (and some more at miles 10 and 12...). What you get are good ol' fashioned goody bags, and a home-grown run managed by the very charity it benefits. As you cross the finish line, you'll be greeted with an ice cold beer from a local brewery (The Brewing Lair), and a massage with a view of the whole valley (juice, coffee, water and hydration drinks also available of course.) In 2012, this race became a qualifier for the Boston Marathon! (Half Marathon Cert# CA12017RS, Full Marathon Cert# CA12016RS) We know that you're happy when your kids are happy - that's why we offer finish line childcare. Best of all? 100% of funds raised go to Mountain Circle Family Services' Powder Quest Program - an outdoor adventure for youth in foster care. Thank you for your support, and happy running! Register early! This race *will* sell out! www.runningwiththebears.org
