RACE MITIGATION PLAN APPROVED BY: KERN COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICES, THE CITY OF BAKERSFIELD, AND KERN COUNTY PARKS.
RUNNER PARTICIPATE CAP: 320 RACE DAY RUNNERS + VIRTUAL RUNNERS
DUE TO COVID-19 GUIDELINES AND OUR RACE MITIGATION PLAN, WE WERE REQUIRED TO CHANGE THE COURSE.
NEW 2020 COURSE: THE START & FINISH LINE WILL BE INSIDE THE SAM LYNN BALLPARK (OUTFIELD). WE WILL HAVE A "ROLLING" CHIPPED START BETWEEN 7:00AM TO 7:20AM TO ENSURE SOCIAL DISTANCING. THEREFORE, YOU CAN START YOUR RACE ANYTIME BETWEEN 7AM - 7:20AM. THE HALF MARATHON COURSE WILL GO FROM THE OUTFIELD TO THE PAVED MANOR RUNNING TRAIL (EAST) TO CHINA GRADE LOOP. RUNNERS WILL TURN RIGHT ONTO CHINA GRADE LOOP (CLOSED ROAD) - YES THAT'S A CHALLENGING HILL UP TO PANORAMA DRIVE. CONTINUE THROUGH PANORAMA PARK BEFORE SWEEPING BACK DOWN TO THE PAVED RUNNING TRAIL ALONG THE KERN RIVER, AND THEN A SHORT OUT & BACK PAST THE BALLPARK, BEFORE FINISHING INSIDE THE SAM LYNN BALLPARK. YES, THIS COURSE HAS REMAINED SCENIC AND IS PRIMARILY ON PAVED RUNNING TRAILS. (SEE COURSE MAP)
