At this stage in life, the only reason we enter races is to get another T-shirt... right?

Well, maybe not for everyone, since many of us do it for the satisfaction of completing a race, doing well in the competition, racing against our friends, or simply knowing that we found a personal test, took it on, and succeeded in overcoming the challenge. We enjoy the knowledge that we can still be athletes and still compete. We like seeing the expressions on the faces of our friends and co-workers when they hear about our athletic exploits. We find a sense of adventure in striving to take part in and finish difficult challenges. We find joy in the training and racing experiences --  and in the camaraderie involved in being in the sports. Perhaps these reasons would be enough to bring us to the starting lines of the races we chose to enter.  Sure, for some of us, the experience alone would be enough reason to participate, but in The BEAR, there are even more reasons...  there are the goodies, too.

In 2002 we were pleased to have CNN Headline News coming to film our race -- and you!  CNN was able to air  "Extreme Sports Week" on their evening broadcasts repeatedly from August 2002 until well into 2003, including the special show on The BEAR and adventure racing that first aired on August 9. They have re-broadcast the Adventure Race segment often, so you may have had several opportunities to see yourself and your Teammates on CNN Headline News. The BEAR also gets great photos and stories in, Shorelines, the Beaches Leader, and other publications. Who knows what coverage The BEAR will get this year...
