State Park Fees
The Bear Lake State Park charges a $8 entrance fee to enter the park. We have arranged for all volunteers to enter the park for free on race day. We recommend everyone to carpool to avoid the extra fee or go with a volunteer. Parking is limited as well. We will pre-charge the $8 fee at packet pickup if you choose.
Ultra Full Distance Postponded until 2013
We were excited to announce the Full Distance for 2012 but knew we were late in starting registrations for such a distance based on lack of time for participants to train. Due to lack of registrations we will postpone this race until 2013 and give one of two options to registered 2012 participants. One full refund. Two credit towards Half Distance the same day and credit towards the 2013 Full Distance.
