After much consideration and looking at the current data trends, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Battle at Bear Wallow. It's our desire to protect our participants and race volunteers in this unprecedented time.

For those who have already registered, please see your options below and email us at and let us know your preference:

1) Total refund of your $35 registration

2) Forward your registration fee to the 2021 Battle at Bear Wallow (anticipated date August 14, 2021)

3) Donate this year’s $35 fee to Access Health Africa’s work in Malawi.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the trails in 2021.


  • Starting Saturday, August 10th, 2019, repeats every year on the 2nd Saturday of August until Saturday, September 16, 2023 — all day
