Course Info

Due to our current COVID issues and vaccine rollout, we will remain with our amended Judgment Day route for your health and safety concerns.  Therefore, this will NOT be a point-to-point race.

This course however will clearly be one that you will enjoy, and it utilizes paved trails, dirt trails in the Panorama Vista Preserve, and the challenging China Grade Loop climb to the scenic vista and running along the bluffs of the Panorama Park, before dropping back down to the paved Kern River Trail.

Come early and stake-out your post race spot with a blanket or pop-up anywhere inside the ballpark, where social distancing can easily be maintained.
