2023 Qualifying Run

    2023 Qualifying Run

UMTB World Series Qualifier

Race Registration is online only. Race is capped at 350 starters.

Registration is closed for 2022. Check back in the fall for registration for the 2023 event.

The race begins at the mouth of Logan Dry Canyon, on the east bench of Logan, Utah. There are dozens of hotels within ten minutes of the start. Logan is a medium-sized university city with all the amenities you need, including an outdoor/running shop or two. It is less than two hours from the Salt Lake City International Airport.

2022 Race Date/Time: September 23-24, 2022 06:00 Start Time
Registration for the 2022 edition is now closed. We peaked at 400 on the waitlist. If you are in the first 200 of the waitlist you have a great chance of getting in. Those higher than 200 probably won’t get in this year.
We no longer offer rollovers for drops but will still offer a partial refund until 9/1/2022. Email the RD for a partial refund.

Shuttle service from finish to start is $20 per runner

Dog limitations

Under NO Circumstances are dogs allowed at the finish area. Runners and crews ignoring this rule are subject to disqualification. Please don’t jeopardize the race using this facility and leave the dogs at home.

Why a Friday Race?

Many runners ask why the Bear 100 begins on a Friday. There are several reasons. First, many participants and volunteers (radio operators, scout troops at the aid stations) are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (“Mormons”) and find it difficult to participate on a Sunday. Second, Saturday recreationists and ranchers have less of an impact when the field is spread out on Saturday morning. Finally, for those traveling from long distance, taking Thursday and Friday off may be easier than taking off Friday and Monday.


All entrants will receive a beautiful t-shirt with a distinctive design. Finishers receive an engraved plaque indicating the date of the event and their finish time and place. They also receive a belt buckle reflective of their time: a Black Bear buckle for times between 30-36 hours, a Grizzly Bear buckle for times between 24-30 hours, and a Wolverine buckle for times under 24 hours.

If you run fast enough (Top 3 Male & Female), in addition to the items above, you will receive a large custom-engraved trophy documenting their accomplishment.
