Bakersfield Marathon & Half

Sun November 14, 2021 Bakersfield, CA 93311 US Directions

Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Why is the event moving from 2020 to 2021?

A - Out of an abundance of caution and care for our community in dealing with Covid-19, Active Bakersfield Alliance has made the decision to postpone the Bakersfield Marathon until November 14, 2021. Our community institutions need to focus on protecting our citizens throughout this next year and we don't want to pull resources away from these efforts. 

Q - I've already signed up! What can I do? 

A - We understand this is a big change of plans. Because none of us could foresee an event of this magnitude, we're offering full refunds until June 1st, 2020. But if you would like to consider yourself the earliest of early birds, know you're automatically registered for our 2021 race – start your training! Send an email to with your refund request or any questions. 

Q - I've run every year, will I keep my Legacy status? 

A - Heck yeah! Just keep running one of our distances every year (or every year we put on our event) and your Legacy status will be preserved.
