Smokey Bear Run
Welcome to the Smokey Bear
Run / Walk Website!
Please join us at beautiful Bass Lake, California on Saturday, September 23, 2017 for the Smokey Bear Run / Walk. This year's event proceeds will go back to our local community.

We are celebrating the 30th year of the race.

Please come early, Road 222 will close 7:15 9:40 a.m. towards the Forks and Millers. If you must leave the race early (soccer season!) please park on the north end; this will allow you a means to exit prior to the road reopening.

Photos taken will be available for viewing and purchase at Ploen Photo.

We look forward to seeing you at the race!
