Bear River Crawl 5K Run

Saturday – July 20, 2024

Bay Front Park at the waterfront in beautiful Petoskey, Michigan

We are excited to host the Bear River Crawl 5K run again this year and if you can’t make it to Petoskey, join us for the virtual run. 

Start time:   5K Run –  8:00 am  5K walkers with strollers and dogs – 8:10 am.

The BRC virtual run has three great advantages for runners and walkers. (Plus if you register before July 12th, we’ll send you a T-shirt)

  1. You can do it on your own time.  If you want to wait for a sunny day or a cool evening, you can.  Just complete the run between July 20 and July 30, 2023.
  2. You can run the race anywhere.  You can run it in Colorado or Florida, downstate or here in Petoskey and still support the NM Cancer Crusaders.
  3. In addition, you get to pick your own course!  It could be on a trail, on a treadmill, in a city, or in a park.  Just get out and run or walk a 5k!

Once you finish your run, send us your times and finish photos and we’ll post them on our social outlets and website.
