Bear Bait Ultras

Milton, FL

Adventures Unlimited Outdoor Center, 8974 Tomahawk Landing Rd, Milton, 32570, FL, USA

Sat 14th January 2023

Organiser's Description

Come join the Bear Bait family for an old school, low key, and well-organized ultra at the beautiful Adventures Unlimited property! Over the course of TWO DAYS, you can take on one of our 50 mile (Sun), 50km (Sun), 25km (Sat), or 4 Mile (Sat) runs. NEW for this year- challenge yourself further by running multiple events in the weekend with our Bear Challenge Combinations!
The event will be at the Adventures Unlimited property, about 11 miles away from Bear Lake. The course will be a four-mile loop. It traces beautifully along Wolf Creek and Coldwater Creek taking you through several different ecological environments, with technical sections (roots), fast-flat sections, some twisty trench sections, and some groomed nature trail sections. The course will be well-marked, and we will also use reflective markers on trees for the night runners.
Pricing for basic registration has been reduced by making race shirts optional. Race shirts are NOT included with registration, however participants who register by November 15th will have the option to purchase a high-quality technical race shirt for $25 by selecting your shirt size during the registration process.
With a lap distance of 4 miles, the 50-mile runners can expect to contend with 13 laps, while 50km runners will traverse 8 laps, 25km runners 4 laps and the 4-milers will enjoy a leisurely lap around the Adventures Unlimited property. Yes, if you do the math, the 25K is actually 16 miles, 50K is 32 miles and the 50 mile is really 52 miles.
Bear Challenge Combinations:

The Cub: 25K (Sat) + 4 Mile (Sat) = 20 Miles

The Panda Bear: 4 Mile (Sat) + 50K (Sun) = 36 Miles

The Black Bear: 4 Mile (Sat) + 50M (Sun) = 54 Miles

The Brown Bear: 25K (Sat) + 50K (Sun) = 48 Miles

The Sun Bear: 25K (Sat) + 50M (Sun) = 66 Miles

The Polar Bear: 25K (Sat) + 4 Mile (Sat) + 50K (Sun) = 52 Miles

The Grizzly Bear: 25K (Sat) + 4 Mile (Sat) + 50M (Sun) = 70 miles
Lodging is available on site for runners, crews, family & friends. Cabins and camping spots are available on a first come/first-serve basis, and Adventures Unlimited will give a discount off normal pricing for registered runners. Use booking code BBU23 when making reservations for a discount (also applies to zipline tours that week).
Adventures Unlimited has plenty of room for runners and crews to set up their own staging/crew/aid areas just a few feet from the course and just past the official aid station/start/finish area, (aka “The Barn”). This area, known as “pit row”, has room for awnings, tables, chairs, heaters, etc. Runners can also tailgate in the parking area adjacent to the barn to aid themselves. Specific layout details will be sent out to all registered runners as the even draws closer.
This event is hosted by Destin 50 Beach Ultras, a 501c3 non-profit supporting military charities. No staff or volunteers are paid. All proceeds, after race expenditures, will benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF), a highly rated non-profit organization ensuring complete post-secondary educational support and additional educational opportunities “cradle to career,” for eligible surviving children of fallen Special Operations Forces and children of all Medal of Honor recipients; and provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded, ill, and injured Special Operations personnel — today and in the future.
