About the National Trails Day Run
Big Bear National Trails Day is a day to celebrate our local treasure – our trails! Kodiak Ultra Marathons is partnering with the Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation to bring you a fun-filled day of running, hiking, and an introduction to trail maintenance.
Although the trail maintenance is not required, we will have groups working on the trails from 9am-12pm, so if you finish your run before noon we hope you'll join in the fun!
The trail run is a fundraiser event supporting the Mountains Foundation and will consist of:
• 5K – Hike or Run (8am)
• Half Marathon Run (7am)
• Marathon Run (6:30am)
• 50K Run (6am)
If you joined us for our Trails Day event last year, you know you won’t want to miss out on the fun this year! We will again have a finish line festival with food, beer, and music. We will also be raffling off some super cool items donated by our generous sponsors.
What’s included with your registration:
-Finish line food
-Finish line beer (21+)
-Aid Station support
-Timed and marked course
-A fun filled day with your family and friends!

We're looking forward to hosting you in Big Bear on June 1st!
Trail Work will take place on the very trail you will run on (Pine Knot trail)!
Check in will start at 8:30am and Trail Maintenance will kick-off at 9am. We will work in small groups and each group will head up the trail on a rolling basis after arriving. We’ll all get down and dirty until about 12PM and then head back to the picnic area for the festivities. We hope all runners and hikers finishing before noon will join in the fun. Open to all ages, children must be supervised. No experience necessary.
All trail work volunteers will receive:
• Trails Day swag item
• Free lunch
• Free beer (21+)
• Raffle ticket
Registration (free) is required and limited to 100 volunteers. For more information and to register: https://bbntd19.eventbrite.com

***DISCLAIMER***March 18, 2019***
(Pre) Registration is now open. We are still ironing out the exact course maps and working with the Forest Service. Therefore, we don’t want to guarantee the exact distances of each course at this time. (i.e. the Marathon course may be 25 or 27 miles, the 5 mile course may be 5.3 miles, etc.). While we’re working on this, you may register if the precise mileage is not important to you and you can TAKE 15% OFF (use code PRE-REG) until we have the courses locked in! We’re pretty sure most people aren’t that picky and just want to get out there and run, but we want everyone to be informed. Coupon expires on March 31!!
Local time: 4:48 AM
