The Kodiak 100 Ultra Marathon is a dream course with a lively Start and Finish downtown in The Village of Big Bear Lake. Runners will circumnavigate the entire Big Bear Valley including a visit to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain (9,963′) and a trip through the rarely visited Siberia Creek Canyon. This is a true mountain 100 miler, with technical footing and a lot of running above 7,000′.
A gorgeous and challenging course that offers more than just a taste of the Kodiak 100, the 50 mile course joins the 100 mile course near the midway point and follows the same track to the finish. 50 milers will start out on a runnable section on Big Bear's north shore and enjoy both views of the desert and alpine forest in the distance. The real test will come in the second half where runners summit Sugarloaf Peak at nearly 10,000 ft, then descend Radford Rd with stunning views to the valley floor and San Gorgonio in the distance, then climb up Seven Oaks. Enjoy the cruise down Knickerbocker to finish downtown in the village.
The Back 50k will follow the final miles of the 100 mile course and will starts at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain. You'll first summit Sugarloaf Peak to nearly 10,000 ft, then descend Radford Rd with stunning views to the valley floor and San Gorgonio in the distance, then climb up Seven Oaks. Enjoy the cruise down Knickerbocker to finish downtown in the village.
