Yes, we can predict the future. “Bears” aplenty will be sighted on the Bear Creek Regional Trail on Saturday, Nov. 13th during the 7th Annual Bear Run- a 3K & 5K Trail Fun Run & Walk. You too, can don a bear suit and join the “bears” on this family-friendly run & walk. All new runners get a bear suit to keep and wear during the run. Returning runners can dust off their bear suit from previous Bear Runs and register at a discounted rate. All proceeds from the event benefit the Friends of El Paso County Nature Centers group, which in turn funds the educational programs and nature camps at Bear Creek and Fountain Creek Nature Centers.

The run/walk starts at 10:00 AM at 2002 Creek Crossing, Colorado Springs, CO 80906. Come at 9:00 for Bear Yoga to warm up your muscles. Join the Costume Contest by embellishing your bear suit. Prizes will be awarded in three categories: Child, Adult, and Group. Registration costs are $60/adult, $30/child which includes your bear suit. For returning participants who already have a suit the cost is $20/adult and $15/child. Register at www.ELPASOCO.COM/BEARRUN. Be sure to register early – space is limited!
