New Course Announcement

We heard your feedback and are excited to announce that the inaugural REVEL Big Bear Marathon & Half will take place on Sunday, October 14, 2018. This incredible new race will replace REVEL Canyon City.

The new course is a much more consistent downhill that takes runners from the forests and cliffs of Big Bear to the city of Redlands, California. The new half marathon (the second half of the full marathon) has ONLY 10 FEET OF UPHILL!
