The 8th Annual Kodiak Ultra Marathons are situated in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California at an elevation of 7,000'. The cozy, cool, alpine village of Big Bear Lake is ready to host you and your crew!
This course is the much anticipated complete loop around Big Bear Lake with the most epic views and climate you could ask for. In 2020 we will again be running the clockwise direction of travel around the lake! With nearly 17,000′ of vertical climbing and sustained running over 7,000′ in elevation, be prepared to be challenged. The Kodiak is a true mountain one hundred. Technical. Steep climbs to 10,000′ summits and cool nights. Gorgeous views. Thin air. Flowing single track. Epic canyon passages. Welcome to the mountains!
Our volunteers and crew will see to it that you have every opportunity to succeed. We pride ourselves on the design of this route, the aid stations, and a COOL little town that will host you. Bring friends, family, kids, ….it will be classic summer season in the Bear.
Proceeds from the Kodiak benefit the San Bernardino Search & Rescue, Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation, Mountain Top Radio Association, and the Big Bear Middle School Interact Club.
