REGISTRATION | LODGING | TRAVEL

The Water’s Edge Resort Bear Lake Marathon weekend is fast becoming one of America’s favorite destination races for those seeking to become members of the 50 State Club. By completing three races in three states in three days (all with minimal travel between races) runners can check off three states at once.

To keep this complicated weekend a little less complicated, the Bear Lake Marathon & Half Marathon races subscribe to the ‘keep it simple‘ theory and don’t promise a lot of bells and whistles with your races. You’ll have amazing scenery, fully supported course and great SWAG, but we don’t bother with live bands, massive stages or elaborate expos. You’re here to run and we’re here to help you do that.

With no time limits (we keep the clock running until the last participant has reached the finish line) and optional early start times for those who want less time in the sun or an extra hour to finish, we cater to those here for the experience as much as we take care of those aiming for a Boston Marathon qualifying time or the podiums.

The fastest man and women (combined times) in the Marathon and Half Marathon Trifecta series will receive a trophy like none other! 

Registration

Registration includes unique finisher’s medals for all participants at each race, sweet SWAG, gender specific t-shirt, electronic timing and results, supported aid stations, and post-race goodies.

Course

The Bear Lake Marathon and Half Marathon Courses are primarily flat with a few rollers. But don’t let anything fool you – these are challenging courses at altitude and sometimes the heat can wear you down. Our Idaho course is new this year and features a rough final half mile with a climb from the shores of the lake to a finish line 200 feet above the lake surface.
