This is road running at it’s finest. No need for man made obstacles at this race, the elevation and topography are challenge enough. 538 feet of climbing over a 13.1 mile course full of steep up and downs, rolling hills and a two mile climb up to 7,200′ for a turn around at Bear Mountain Ski Resort. Add a $2500 prize purse and a (pending) USATF Certified Road Course to stiffen the competition and you’ve got we we think is the toughest half marathon in the United States.
Race day also includes the Memorial 5k Fun Run, a scenic and challenging course along the border of the National Forest. This is an Open Air Big Bear event so you can expect a FUN start and finish in The Village of Big Bear Lake with Live Music and Local Vendors at the Lifestyle Expo and is an official proud supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project!
