The 7th annual Kodiak Ultra Marathons will take place August 16-17, 2019 in beautiful Big Bear Lake, California. Big Bear Lake sits at 7,000 ft in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. The 100 mile distance will start and finish in the Big Bear Village and will circumnavigate the entire Big Bear Valley. The Kodiak also offers a 50-mile distance and a 50k, which will be run along the same track as the 100-mile race.
The 100 miler will start at 8AM Friday with a special 12 Noon Prize Purse Start elite runners. The 50 miler will start at 4AM on Saturday on the North Shore of Big Bear Lake, and finally the Back 50k will start at 8AM at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain.
There will be six crew-accessible aid stations along the Kodiak 100 mile route, including the start/finish area in the Village. Pacers are permitted starting at the Dump Aid Station (Mile 56), except for the prize purse race, where pacers can join starting at Sugarloaf (Mile 69). No pacers in the 50M or 50K race.
The Kodiak 100 miler is a 6 point UTMB Qualifier and the 50 miler is worth 3 points.
We encourage all spectators to enjoy the start/finish area in the Village. We will have a beer garden, food and sponsor booths setup on Saturday.
