Bearly 5K is your chance to help save orphaned bear cubs.
Bearly 5K Run/Walk is your chance to get moving and help save orphaned black bear cubs! Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 27, 2018.
This Smoky Mountain special event will be fun for the entire family. It is the time of year that ghouls and goblins emerge from the mists of the Smoky Mountains so Halloween costumes are welcome for race participants. If you are not into dressing up come as you are or wear your favorite ABR 5K shirt. A prize will be awarded for the best dressed runner!
This will be a fun, family-friendly event!! Runner/Walkers will not be timed, but the first three runners arriving back at Trillium Cove will be awarded a special ABR prize. The race will be held at the Appalachian Bear Rescue Visitor and Education Center, 121 Painted Trillium Way,
