Important update due to COVID-19 - PLEASE READ

We have been closely monitoring the situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we want to do the best thing we can for our runners, volunteers, and our mountain community of Big Bear Lake. Please read this important update - it's a little long, but we want you to know everything we're planning and how it affects you.

Because of the continued uncertainty due to COVID-19, we are strongly considering postponing the 2020 Kodiak to September 11-12, 2020. Right now, we feel that pushing the race out by approximately one month would give us a much better chance of holding the event. Still, we don't know what the orders and guidelines may be in the future, but we do need to make some decisions that minimize risk for you as a participant and for us as a race organization.

We expect to receive updates on California state and local orders within the next week or so. We plan to decide on the postponement no later than June 1. We will keep everyone informed of any updates, modifications, or changes along the way. If uncertainty still exists 4-6 weeks before the event, we will likely need to make the difficult decision to cancel the event. We want to give everyone enough time to deal with travel plans, time off work, child care, alternate plans, final training, etc.

About Kodiak Ultra Marathons

The 8th annual Kodiak Ultra Marathons will take place August 14-15, 2020 in beautiful Big Bear Lake, California. Big Bear Lake sits at 7,000 ft in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. The 100 mile distance will start and finish in the Big Bear Village and will circumnavigate the entire Big Bear Valley. The Kodiak also offers a 50M, 50K, Half Marathon, and 10K.

There will be six crew-accessible aid stations along the Kodiak 100 mile route, including the start/finish area in the Village. Pacers are permitted starting at Mile 55.8. No pacers in the 50M or 50K race.

We encourage all spectators to enjoy the start/finish area in the Village. We will have a beer garden, food and sponsor booths setup on Saturday. Bring your friends, family, kids...
