The Bear Chase
More than a race, The Bear Chase Trail Race is an endurance festival! Only the most experienced runners will be able to tackle one of the races and there are plenty of options! Runners can choose between the 100k, 50 mile, 50k, Half Marathon and the Baby Bear 10k Trail Race, with each race taking place at beautiful Bear Creek Lake Park, in Lakewood, Colorado.
The Bear Chase is an excellent race for first time ultramarathoners. Runners in each race will experience challenging terrains and sweeping panoramic views. Split into two days, the 100k, 50 mile and 50k races will be held on September 24th, while the half marathon and 10k races will take place on September 25th.
It's not for the faint of heart, or those that don't like running, but it promises to be a good time. If you're an ultrarunner, or want to give ultrarunning a try, The Bear Chase Trail Race is the perfect opportunity.
The Bear Chase Trail Race is a series of five races over two days and serves as an excellent race for first time ultramarathoners. Regardless of which race is chosen, runners will experience sweeping panoramic views and challenging terrain. The course is pretty fast (by ultra marathon standards), but not overly technical. Elevation changes depending on the race, with the 100K reaching 4,250 feet.
The course strictly follows the "no trace" mantra. Runners will need to bring reusable water bottles as no paper cups will be provided. Aid stations are on average 2.5 miles apart and are stocked with soda, water, energy drinks and much more.
