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. The first 50k concludes with a visit through the rarely crossed Siberia Canyon, followed by lots of cruisers along the north shore of Big Bear Lake, including over 20 miles of the Pacific Crest Trial. 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. This is a true mountain 100 miler, with some technical footing and a lot of running above 7,000′.
Want a taste of the Kodiak without the extremes of summiting the 10,000ft Sugarloaf Mountain and crossing over Deadman's Ridge? Or maybe you just want to avoid the climb up Seven Oaks. The 100K will start with the 100M race from the Big Bear Village and follow the same course all the way to Mile 59.
50K, Half Marathon & 10K
Start and finish downtown in the heart of the Big Bear Village. You will head into the forest and start climbing to the high point of the course at 8,000 feet. Enjoy the beautiful single track along the ridge, with amazing views of San Gorgonio peak in the background! A stunning course that will test you and thrill you at the same time. The final 3 miles are a cruise down Knickerbocker Road, a dirt road above the town of Big Bear Lake with view of the lake to take in while you finish your trail run.
