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.
The Bear Wait List currently has over 350 listings. We are closing this portion of the registration process. We have already taken over 75 from the Wait List and do not anticipate taking more than several more. We have not had many withdrawals but will continue to replace withdrawals with the next person on the Wait List until June 26th. We will completely close The Bear on that date with no more additions to the entry list. We hope you will try again next year if you are not entered at that time.
Registration procedures will be announced at the end of December 2019 for next year on this website.
