Hairy Bison 15K & 30K Bib Decoration Event

The legendary Hairy Bison race (held in our own Harbison State Forest) is the only trail race in the world in which all bibs (the printed numbers worn by runners) are hand-designed by graphic designers, writers, and illustrators. Each bib is a unique work of art, a one-of-a-kind creation. The bibs are treasured by runners and kept for a lifetime. But as much fun as it is to wear a Bison bib, it is even more fun to create them.

This year, we’re opening up the opportunity to the talented design community. Join us for a delightful time of bib design, including more creative freedom than you’ll know what to do with, and fellowship with amazing creative professionals. This is NOT normal, which makes it so very great indeed.

We’ll have a stash of professional supplies, but you are free to bring your own supplies of choice.
