Half Marathon Course Map Updated

A new course map for the half marathon is now posted on our half marathon page.    Check out the new route.   It was chosen originally as a way to eliminate the bus ride to the start due to Covid restrictions, but depending on how people like the course this year, may remain in future years.   Be sure to let us know which one you like better.


Bear Cupboard Run to Return in 2021

After having to cancel our in-person race last year, the Bear Cupboard Run is set to be a live and in-person event in Downtown Minocqua once again.    Yes, we will still need to take precautions to maintain a proper and safe environment, but we will do that taking into account the situation at the time and will announce specific steps we will be taking as they evolve.    We will also provide a virtual option for those that would prefer that for whatever reason.    Right now, we are updating our website and registration pages, but plan to have everything ready to go by mid-April.    But for now, reserve June 26 for a race on the Bearskin trail or, if Wisconsin DNR guidelines don’t permit it, we will hold it at a nearby alternate location and course.

Happy 4th of July

A number of the volunteers who are helping organize the upcoming Bear Cupboard Run took part in a Channel 12 ad helping celebrating our country’s birthday.   We want to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July weekend.   Remember to keep up your training over the holiday for the Bear Cupboard Run which will take place on July 16.   Enjoy the 4th!
