This Event Took Place Sat. Nov 17, 2012



You're invited to join a growing community of runners at the beautiful

Blackwater River Forest Bear Lake area for the 2nd annual Bear Bait

Ultramarathon and Fun Run.  Challenge yourself to one of our 50M, 50km, and

25km distance runs.  The course offers a relatively flat terrain on mostly

single track trail promising some fast times and an enjoyable running

experience for both the competitive and casual runner. 

The Race


With a lap distance of 4 miles, the 50M runners can expect to contend 

with a grueling 13 laps, while 50km runners will traverse 8 laps, and 25km runners

will enjoy a leisurely 4 laps around the perimeter of Bear Lake.


An aid station will mark the start/end of each 4 mile lap and will be

stocked with Hammer Nutrition HEED & Gels, water, fresh fruit, M&M's,

pretzels, etc.  Every participant will receive an official Bear Bait shirt.

Awards will be given to recognize the top 3 finishers in the 50M, 50km, and

25km overall. There will be food and beverages provided after the race

for all participants at the Bear Lake pavilion

The Spot

Camping at Bear Lake is on a first come/first serve basis and will be an

additional charge upon arrival at Bear Lake.  The entrance to Bear Lake is

at the intersection of Hwy 4 and Bear Lake Rd.

not-for-profit organization providing temporary lodging and facilities for

the families of military members who are being treated at military and VA
