It is with heavy hearts that we have chosen to cancel Pear Fair 2020, along with all of it's events, including the Fun Runs -- both 5 and 10 Milers.
We intend to be back, ready to race the last Sunday of July 2021!
See you runners then! Stay safe and healthy!

Pear Fair (including the race) is a *Dog Free* event: We love dogs, but it’s just too hot for man’s best friend. Please leave them at home on Pear Fair day. *except registered service animals.
All proceeds go towards local high school athletic programs and scholarships.
The course is not particularly "stroller friendly"... It is mainly a dirt trail, but there are parts that are gravel, parts that are actively being farmed (be it an orchard, vineyard, or a field), and parts that are paved. (A recent trial was given the review, "It's too bumpy for a BOB run, Mommy!" - age, 3)

After the run stay for the fun!! For more information regarding the day’s events please go to www.pearfair.org
