Event: Black Bear Double Charity Bib
Includes the following events: Half Marathon and 5K (timed)
As part of our ongoing effort to raise money for the National Parks, we’re excited to offer Charity Bibs for the Great Smoky Mountains Half Marathon!

Registering for a charity bib is a serious commitment.
Don't take it lightly.

By claiming a charity bib you're committing to raise $1200 through our registration system. 100% of the money raised will be donated to our designated charity for this race: Friends of the Smokies

HOW IT WORKS
First, select the “charity bib” option when you register for the race.

Once you've registered, you are committed to raise $1200. You'll have until 2 weeks before race weekend to raise the required funds. You’ll be provided a link to share where people can donate and contribute to the $1200.

If by the deadline you are short of the $1200, you will be charged the remainder. (For example, if you raise $900 by the deadline, you'll will be charged $300.) If you raise the full $1200 or more, you will not be charged anything.

Your race registration is also included in your charity bib registration, so you’ll be asked things like preferred shirt size, hydration method, etc.

We’re excited about this opportunity to raise additional money for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and to do some good!
