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 gear and race entries donated by our generous sponsors.

Trail Work

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: Click here

The Course

Check out these awesome courses: here
The 50K will have ~4,000+ feet of elevation gainloss, the Marathon will be have about 3500 feet of elevation gain/loss while the Half Marathon will have about 2500 ft of gain/loss. Mileage and elevation gain is approximate.

Note - In the map app, you can view an elevation profile of each course by clicking the small graph icon, just to the right of your route’s name on the left hand toolbar. To isolate each course on the map, uncheck the courses you don't want to see. Play around. Caltopo is very powerful and cool!
