The Bear race wait list is closed

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.

2019 Race Registration

Online registration opens Tuesday, February 5th at 7:00 am for the 25th running of The Bear Hill Race on Thursday, July 11, 2019.

This race is limited to the first 800 entries and filled up quickly last year (in less than 1 hour).

We do 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 the race logistics, including lodging and parking.
