Kodiak Ultra Marathons routes
The Kodiak 100 Ultra Marathon has an epic start and finish from the Village of Big Bear Lake. Runners will circumnavigate the entire Big Bear Valley and make the monumental ascent to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain (9,963ft) as well as a trip through the rarely visited, yet stunning, Siberia Creek Canyon. This course provides a true mountain 100 miler, with technical footing and a lot of running above 7,000ft.
This challenging yet picturesque course offers more than just a taste of the Kodiak 100 and the 50 mile route will join the 100 mile course near the midway point before then following the same track to the finish. 50 milers will kick-off from a runnable section on Big Bear's north shore and behold epic views of both the desert and the alpine forest in the distance.
The real test will come in the latter stages of the race when runners climb Sugarloaf Peak (9,963ft), before making a descent of Radford Rd. Here, you can enjoy spectacular stunning views over the valley floor with San Gorgonio in the distance, before then climbing up Seven Oaks. Enjoy the cruise down Knickerbocker to finish downtown in the village.
The final 31 miles of the 100 mile course kicks-off from the base of Sugarloaf Mountain. Here, you will climb almost 10,000ft to the top of Sugarloaf Peak before starting the downhill to Radford Rd. As in the 50 miler, runners can enjoy the breathtaking views over the valley floor with San Gorgonio looming in the distance. One last climb climb up Seven Oaks, before being able to enjoy the cruise down to Knickerbocker and the photo finish in the villages downtown.
