Description:
Three intrepid marathoners (only one of whom had a vague sense of direction), armed with topo maps, a GPS, and bear spray, spent the better part of the summer and fall of 2004 getting lost in the Stillwater State Forest. Eventually, however, they accomplished their goal and mapped out a challenging, scenic course for a marathon. Next, they chose a weekend when the fall colors were at their peak, and the Two Bear Marathon was born.
Course Information:

Marathon



This is a Point-to-Point course. The first 15 miles take you through the Stillwater State Forest on dirt roads and trails, passing Beaver Lake, Murray Lake, Woods Lake and Thornberg Lake. The remainder of the course is paved. Miles 15 through 24 follow the north and east shores of Whitefish Lake to City Beach. You'll cruise the town of Whitefish for the remaining 1.5 miles, ending at The Wave.

Elevation Gain and Loss - The good news is that there is a NET elevation loss of 229 feet! The bad news is the TOTAL elevation gain is over 4,600 feet! We start at an elevation of 3,273 feet. Only about one-fourth of the course could be considered flat.

Half Marathon


This is a Point-to-Point course, beginning on a dirt and gravel road for approximately 2 miles before joining the marathon course on East Lakeshore Drive. Miles 2 through 11 follow the north and east shores of Whitefish Lake to City Beach. You'll cruise the town of Whitefish for the remaining 1.5 miles, ending at The Wave.
