Tom Segura & Bert Kreischer on the "2 Bears, 1 Cave" Podcast.

Tom Segura & Bert Kreischer Are Hosting A '2 Bears' 5K This May

Update on March 25th, 2024:

Bert Kreischer & Tom Segura have announced the first annual 2 Bears 5K is set to take place at Netflix Is A Joke Fest at The Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, CA (click here for the latest info).

Bert Kreischer & Tom Segura, comedian best friends & hosts of the wildly popular 2 Bears, 1 Cave Podcast, are kicking things off with a bang in 2024 as revealed in their first episode of the new year (aired this past Monday, January 1st).


Kreischer & Segura took to the show to share their goals for the new year. Kreischer's goals have been consistent as he's shared on the show, "every year's resolution, it's always to drink less, lose weight (which he absolutely crushed this past year), do push ups, run a 7 minute mile. That's it."


As they both continued talking about their health goals, Segura in response shared how he recently completed a 5K and one of his goals is to run a 10K this year. Thus, the lightbulb moment begins here for Kreischer.


It was during this episode they conceptualized their goal for the new year to run a 5K, which is now dubbed as the "5K By May" challenge.

Everything we know so far about the '2 Bears' 5K.

This isn't just running any 5K, the goal is to run it under 26 minutes. Any minute Tom & Bert go above the 26 minute 5K run time challenge, they will each donate $1,000 to a charity of their choice. So far, we know this 5K is gonna happen this May, the city it'll be hosted in is currently TBD with Bert planning on throwing a big party after completing the 5K.


To make this even sweeter of a challenge, they took this episode to recruit their comedian friends via FaceTime to join them for the 5K.

Who's running in Bert Kreischer & Tom Segura's 5K?

As gathered from this episode, we know that Michelle Wolf, Tim Dillon, Stavros Halkias & Mark Normand are in. Tentative yeses are in from Shane Gillis & Louis CK.
