Honey Bee Alert: The Pear Fair run takes you through the heart of Delta agricultural lands and with that comes honey bees that pollinate the crops. Please be aware that there are bee hives near the vicinity of the run course.
Pancake Breakfast is 7:30 to 10 am: Pear Fair volunteers are holding a pancake breakfast including pancakes, sausage, pear compote and for extra, you can add on a Pear-mosa! It’s super delicious at just $10 (kids for $5)! Coffee and orange juice will also be available. The breakfast is located near the race start line. Feel free to indulge after you run!
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
