Sierra Nevada Connections Annual Fundraising Events

At Sierra Nevada Connections, we believe in being active. Active in our communities, in our families, and our personal lives. Our annual fundraisers include running and cycling events that bring people together, from all over the world, to collectively achieve personal goals while raising money to help foster youth. Our organization’s values are rooted in relationships and how we, as an organization, can support people to better themselves and together create healthier communities. Our vision for these events is to create a unique experience that runners and bikers will never forget.

Running with the Bears

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!

Bear Growl Gravel Grinder

An exciting and challenging gravel and paved cycling event showcasing the most amazing roads in Greenville. Bringing the good ol' fun of gravel riding with a laid back atmosphere, the event features distances for all riding abilities. The courses feature a perfect blend of pavement, dirt road and gravel road with historic Sierra Nevada elevation grades. This is the most chill gravel event experience!
