Virtual Bakersfield Marathon & Mini Marathon

Fri December 4 - Sun December 6 Bakersfield, CA 93301 US


Q: Where is the course? Where will we run our race?

A: As this is a virtual event you may run wherever you like! Run in your neighboorhood, on the Kern River Parkway, or on a green path in the city in which you reside. The course is yours to design! Just be sure to be safe and follow all pedestrian and traffic laws.


Q: How will we submit our results?

A: You'll login to your RunSignUp account and use the Results tab to submit your race times. We'll have more information on best practices for capturing and submitting your results in the coming days. Check back for more information.


Q: Can I sign-up for more than one event?

A: Unfortunately not. We kindly ask you choose your favorite race and participate in a single event. 


Q: Is the Virtual Bakersfield Marathon & Mini Marathon required to preserve Legacy Club status?

A: No. We're saving our Legacy Club Membership for our physical races only. You do not have to run our virtual race to maintain your status. But if you are a Legacy Member, get ready to join us for our upcoming, live-and-in-person, 2021 Bakersfield Marathon!


Q: Why isn't there a medallion for this race?

A: We know folks love medals -- and we love designing them. But for our inaugural virtual race we opted to focus instead on crafting new running challenges with inexpensive entry fees. This year we chose to commemorate the race with our 2020 Virtual Bakersfield Marathon Tech Tee, an optional add-on to your registration.

Join us in 2021 for our live-and-in-person Bakersfield Marathon and we'll be sure to provide a covetable medallion for your efforts! 


Q: Are dogs and strollers allowed?

A: Yes! As these are virtual events, you can bring your favorite canine or small human along for the ride!
