I did The Bear - the 5K then the 5 miler. In 2015 it was snowy. In 2016, warm (for February) and sunny. Either way, it was a blast to be out running with friends. The course was easy to navigate and offered a great tour of downtown.
The new home at the CityWay YMCA is was fantastic - plenty of indoor space to keep warm and stretch out. Packet pickup was a breeze. And the after party was a ton of fun, complete with free craft beer! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I can't wait for next winter!
