Hill climbing, part 2
Elevation for The Bear 5 Mile Run:
Starting at elevation 3,640 feet and finishing atop Grandfather Mountain at 5,181 feet, The Bear gains 1,541 feet in five miles.
The race is on Thursday, July 10. Along with the Grandfather Mountain Marathon, The Bear is part of the local Scottish Highland Games.
I'm starting to get excited about this challenge. I've been told that The Bear is the bigger draw of the weekend.
