Bishop High Sierra Ultra Marathon


The Bishop High Sierra Ultra Marathon returns in 2018 for its 22nd running (having skipped 2015-17 while a new race director was being sought). As in the past, distances include a 20 mile "fun run", a 50k, a 50 miler and a 100k. These races are high altitude, with lots of climbing, in the scenic foothills of the Eastern Sierra Nevada, about the small town of Bishop. The course is mainly run on four wheel drive dirt roads, with a couple of sections of single-track trail, and very short sections of pavement. There are very few trees, thus the race is exposed, often hot, usually dry, sometimes rocky, and mostly high! These races are the perfect training opportunity for upcoming mountain trail 100 mile events. 

The race is a production of the Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association (ESIA) and is offered as a benefit to its Eastern Sierra Youth Outdoor Program and Inyo County Search and Rescue
