This year’s Grizzly Bear Run saw 134 runners from across all age groups participate in its 5K and 12K runs.
This year’s run was quite a bit different from those of the past.,
“It’s a community race now,” Jarrett Spannier of the Alpine Runners said of the event. “Now people run for fun instead of points as we used to.”
In fact, this year’s run was organized by the Revelstoke Credit Union, which did a masterful job. There were prizes for the top runners and scads of door prizes for everyone.
“The business community really pitched in with prizes,” said RCU’s Todd Webber.
