This Event Took Place Sat. Jan 17, 2015

Military Pricing

All current and former military personnel will recieve a discounted registration using the coupon code "MILITARY." This code can not be refunded if not used at checkout.


Come join the Bear Bait family for an old school, low key, and well-organized ultra at the beautiful Blackwater River Forest, Bear Lake area. Challenge yourself to one of our 50 mile, 50km, and 25km distance runs. The course offers relatively flat terrain on mostly single-track trail promising an enjoyable running experience and great possibility for a PR.

Every participant that registers by December 10th will receive an official Patagonia race shirt.

Every finisher of the distance they start will receive a Bear Bait finisher’s amulet, handcrafted by our friend Tracy Thomas.

The Race

With a lap distance of 4 miles, the 50 mile 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 at the Bear Lake pavilion(with bathrooms). The aid station will be adequately stocked with typical ultra fare(M&M's, chips, pretzels, coke, sports drink, etc.). If you require any specific food/beverage, bring it!!

Handcrafted awards from our friend Tracy Thomas will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers in the 50M, 50km, and 25km events.

The Cause

All proceeds after race expenditures will benefit the Fisher House Foundation, a not-for-profit organization providing temporary lodging and facilities for the families of military members who are being treated at military and VA medical centers. Information about Fisher House Foundation and their mission can be found at
