Welcome to the website of The Bear Race held each year during the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, one of the largest Scottish Games in the world.
2021 Bear Race
We are in ongoing discussions with the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games for the planning of the 2021 Marathon and Bear. More information will be posted here in early January.
We ask that you read through this website before entering so you are aware of the challenge of the race as well as the challenges of race logistics, including lodging and parking.
