       The fourth annual 3K run in bear suits will be Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Bear Creek Nature Center. Called the Bear Run, the fundraising run/walk's route uses trails in the regional- park open space around the center at 245 Bear Creek Road.
       Under the event rules, runners/walkers must wear a bear costume - which is paid for with the entry fee.
       Those fees vary between adults and children and whether a person has a suit from previous years.
       The Bear Run has attracted more than 150 runners.
       Event proceeds go to the Friends of El Paso County Nature Centers nonprofit organization.
       For more information, call the Nature Center at 520-6387.
