Pre-registration includes a complimentary ticket to Clark’s Bears (that can be used any time this year or next) and a 2019 Running of the Bears 5K T-shirt.
This 5K, perfect for the whole family, is BYOB (Bring your own BEAR). Each participant must run/walk with a teddy bear. There will be fun prizes for biggest bear, best bear costume, youngest and oldest participants, but the most coveted are the top awards. The fastest three male and female runners are given trophies. Awards are also given to the fastest in each age group. Millennium Running will be at the ready with chipped bibs and computer equipment to accurately keep time. As you can tell this is the perfect 5K for the competitive runner. Walkers also enjoy the 5K. Last year times varied from about 17 minutes to just under an hour. All are welcome. Well…unless you have an unusual fear of Wolfman. The infamous legend himself will be there for the shotgun start. This unique road race will benefit the communities Emergency Medical Services.
The Linwood Ambulance Service is celebrating their 50th Anniversary. The department of call members responds to medical emergencies and provides stand-by coverage in Lincoln, Woodstock, and Livermore. This 200-square miles in the White Mountains of New Hampshire depends of this vital service. Their hard-work providing basic and advanced life support to this community does not go unnoticed. Woodstock Selectman and Linwood Medical Center Trustee, Joel Bourassa came up with the idea. The Clark Family loved it and makes the perfect host.
Nearly 200 participants last year helped raise $6,000. The goal, of course, is the Running of the Bears 5K will continue to grow.
