CBC’s Bearcat Prowl returns to Abbotsford

Columbia Bible College hosting third annual run/walk at Rotary Stadium

The third annual Bearcat Prowl returns to Rotary Stadium on April 8.

The third annual Bearcat Prowl returns to Rotary Stadium on April 8, and this year’s fundraising event is all about the kids.

The event, put on by the Columbia Bible College athletic department, is a family-friendly glow in the dark five kilometre run or walk. All ages and abilities can participate.

All proceeds from this year’s event will help purchase sports kits for Dormick Park Elementary School in Abbotsford.

These sports kits will contain much-needed sports equipment (basketballs, soccer balls, and more) that will help students be active and athletic during outside time.

If you’ve never run in an official race before but always wanted to try, organizers say the Bearcat Prowl is the perfect event. There is an official start and finish, with a five-kilometre route with small inclines here and there. This event isn’t chip-timed, so bring a stop watch or phone with a timer.

It all gets underway on April 8, with a check-in time of 7:45 p.m. An official welcome and stories from event organizers occurs at 8:15 p.m., and the event kicks off at 8:30 p.m.

There is a registration fee of $25 for adults, $20 for students and kids 12 and under are free. All competitors will receive a race pack, which includes a Bearcats t-shirt, two glow bracelets and a necklace. The deadline to register for the event is March 31.

All registration is done online. For details on how to register, and more information about the event, visit columbiabc.edu/prowl.
