Mr. Toad's Back to School Relay

Hart Park Hills

Bakersfield, CA 15K, Relay

This Event Took Place Sat. Aug 20, 2011


Start looking for a team mate or two for this unique race! The race is basically three laps of the Mr. Toads 5k course. But instead of running down Toads, you will be running up it and then finish your leg running down the Pistol Range Hill. Then your team mate gets to hold your lead or make up the time you lost. For those without fast friends, you can do all three laps on your own.

This race will start at 8am at the bottom of the Sheriff's Pistol Range Hill.


A word of warning, this is a trail race and each lap is about three miles. If you want a fast flat 5k race, then this is not the race for you. If you are open minded and want to have fun, please join us!

The course goes up Toads, then connects to a Roller Coaster Ride of single track until it plummets down the Pistol Range Hill. At the bottom of the Pistol Range Hill is where the exchange zone will be.
