Running with the Bears
Half-Marathon and Marathon
Stunning views and a fast and fun course! No crowded start lines, easy to manage packet pick up and a renown post-race BBQ. The marathon route is great for first-timers or those 26.2 milers looking for the PR or a Boston Marathon qualifying time. An ideal event for any level of runner and great for a small group destination race. Experience a truly fun and unique running event with RWTB!
