MAY 26 – Bear Lake Monster Half Marathon, 10k & 5k. The Bear Lake Monster Run has been tamed – just a little bit. With a new route and location for 2014, you’ll be running through the south end of the amazing Bear Lake Valley with views of the lake, farmlands and a tough little climb into a canyon. 10K and 5K options for those not quite ready for 13.1 miles are also available. Start your summer running season at Bear Lake with this Memorial Day MONDAY run!
June 13 & 14 – Bear Lake Marathon. We’re thrilled to announce that Extra Mile Racing LLC will be the new promoters of the Bear Lake Marathon. The seventh annual race is among the most scenic in Utah AND Idaho. That’s right, we have two marathons on back-to-back days for all you 50 State Club marathon runners. Friday, June 13 will offer a half marathon AND full marathon on the Idaho side of the lake while we feature the full range of races (5K, 10K, 13.1 and 26.2) in Utah on Saturday, June 14.
JUNE 21 – Bear Lake Monster Century. The one that got it all started for us! Beginning and ending at Bear Lake Hot Springs, our century ride cruises though the Idaho side of the Bear Lake Valley, visiting farm towns and scenic canyons – with a monster of a climb to Minnetonka Cave for the ambitious. Distances ranging from 100 to 25 miles suit cyclists of all abilities. Hamburgers, hot dogs and more wait all riders at the finish line!
SEPT. 1 – Bear Lake Monster Half Marathon, 10k & 5k. A repeat of our May 26 race, this time with fall colors! The Bear Lake Monster Run has you running through the south end of the amazing Bear Lake Valley with views of the lake, farmlands and a tough little climb into a canyon. 10K and 5K options for those not quite ready for 13.1 miles are also available.

SEPT. 27 – Bear Lake Monster Cross. Trust us on this one, you think you’ve seen the Bear Lake Valley before, but you’ve never experienced it like this. Our dirt-road century ride – a gravel grinder, if you will – hits the Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge, rural canyons you didn’t know existed, fall colors galore and maybe even an encounter or two (or five) with various forms of wildlife. Bring your knobby tires – a cyclocross or mountain bike is highly recommended – for what is certain to be one of your all-time favorite rides. Fully supported aid stations and a SAG wagon to help you out.
