The annual Kodiak Ultra Marathons will take place August 20-21, 2021 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.

There will be a total of 13 aid station stops along the 100 mile route, including six crew-accessible aid stations. Pacers are permitted starting at Mile 55.8. Pacers permitted in the 100M race only. Visit Big Bear has generously granted the Kodiak a $10,000 prize purse! The Kodiak 100 miler is a 6 point UTMB Qualifier.

New in 2021! The addition of 100K, Half Marathon, and 10K courses.
