Welcome to the Big Bear Lake Half Marathon! This is road running at it’s finest. A scenic and challenging course full of steep up and downs, rolling hills and a two mile climb up to 7,300′ for a gorgeous run through Big Bear Lake’s most scenic neighborhoods. Race day also includes the Memorial 5k Fun Run, a scenic and challenging course along the border of the National Forest. Both events share the same Start and Finish in The Village of Big Bear Lake.
This is an Open Air Big Bear event so you can expect a FUN start and finish in The Village of Big Bear Lake with Live Music and Local Vendors at the Lifestyle Expo.
The Big Bear Lake Half Marathon and Memorial 5k Fun Run is an official proud supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project! A portion of each race entry fee will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Last year we raised $1000 for the Wounded Warrior Project at the 1st Memorial 5k Fun Run. With the addition of the Half Marathon we hope to raise a lot more this year!
The Village of Big Bear Lake has all the amenities of a resort destination and immediate access to world class adventure. Our lifestyle expo is right smack in the middle of “downtown” Big Bear putting you right in the middle of all the action on Memorial Weekend!
