Small Race Preview: 2018 Bear Creek Run 5k/10k (Vernonia)


What better way to spend 8/18/18 than at The Bear Creek 5K/10K/Kids Run!? It is a great family-friendly Vernonia event benefitting the Vernonia Cares Food Bank, an organization that aims to provide 3 days of emergency groceries once a month to households in Vernonia that are in need.

The 10K route takes you on the path from Anderson Park north to California Ave, up Bridge Street to Vernonia Lake, around the lake once and then back to Anderson Park on a trail, then through Anderson park, running on the Linear Trail (along Highway 47 South towards Highway 26) and doubling back to end at Anderson Park.

The 5K and 5K Kids Run follows the path from Anderson Park north to California Ave, up Bridge Street to Vernonia Lake, around the lake once and then back to Anderson Park via a non-paved trail.

It’s a fast course in a beautiful town for a great cause. Mark your calendars!
