A Sweet Revival for the Black Bear Half Marathon

The Black Bear Half Marathon will return to Waterville Valley this Labor Day Weekend, Saturday the 31st, in support of the Waterville Valley Elementary School (WVES) PTA. The race will travel the Valley’s scenic roads & trails and competitors will enjoy the gorgeous White Mountain National Forest.

The schedule includes a full lineup of races throughout the morning for everyone in the family to enjoy. Athletes will be challenged in the forested half marathon, cruise through the dirt packed 5K, or find their pace in the 1 mile fun run. While racers are chasing down the finish line, spectators will find plenty of fun and games with vendors and activities all around Town Square.

The race organizers also welcome businesses and groups to join in the event as sponsors, vendors, or to otherwise support the cause. Contributing supporters will, among other benefits, be gratefully recognized prior to and at the event around Town Square during a packed holiday weekend. We are excited to include WV BBTS, NH Electric Coop, C2 Systems, The Coyote Grill, and La Hacienda among our early supporters.

Athletes and families can sign up for the races at www.runreg.com/black-bear-half-marathon and find more info by visiting our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/blackbearhalf.
