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 50-mile distance and a 50K, which will be run along the same track as the 100-mile race. The 100 miler will start at 6PM Friday (that's right - a night start!). The 50 miler will start at 4AM on Saturday on Holcomb Valley Road near Lake Baldwin, and finally the Back 50K will start at 6AM am at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain.
      • 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 52. 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.
