Cinco de Mayo 2021!

Virtual Run* to Raise Funds for Rehoming Retired Alaskan Sled Dogs

Black Bear celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a run. It's always more fun training together with a pack of friends.

The virtual event runs 27 day, from Wed May 5 through Mon May 31, 2021. Run* when, where, how far and how often you choose on May 5th. You can apply any of your runs to a team that you choose. You can run for more than one team, but an individual run can only apply to one team. For scoring, a team must have entries from at least three different people. Distances are on the honor system, since sled dogs always tell the truth and only rarely exaggerate about the fast furry critter that got away!

* - You can interpret 'run' to mean: run, walk, bike, paddle, dog sled, canicross, bikejoring, skiing, etc. Choose your activity type when you enter your mileage.

If you registered for one of's running events earlier this year, can participate in this event too (if you'd like a shirt, email Black Bear). If you weren't registered, then registration is $30 and includes a custom shirt designed to honor Beaver and Bangor. All proceeds go toward rehoming these wonderful, talented and loveable dogs when they retire. Donations for the sled dogs are always appreciated, but not required for these events. Or checkout one of Black Bear's books.
