    Southview Bear Crawl 5k or 1 Mile Run/Walk

    Race Starts at 10 am | Packet Pick Up starts at 8:30 am

    The 2018 Bear Crawl will be hosted on September 29th with start and finish at Southview Elementary School. Two course distances are offered, a 1 mile route and 5k route. This is a fun run or walk to support our school.

    Because of our generous community, they have met their original goal and the new playground is being installed this August. The Bear Crawl will now help raise funds for school activities, and support the students and teachers through the PTO. They are hoping to create an annual event that everyone can look forward to as a kick off for the new school year. Ideally, this one event will help raise enough money so they can discontinue other fundraising efforts throughout the year and your participation will help them reach that goal!

    COST:

    $20 - 1 registration

    $10 - each additional registration

    *Multiple registrations must live at the same residence.

     

    Please add T-shirt sizes for all participants to your order. Shirts are unisex sizing: Youth Small, Medium, Large; Adult Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large. Please indicate NO SHIRT if you would not like a Bear Crawl race shirt.

    T-shirts will be guaranteed only if registration is received before September 10th.
