The Half is an out and back course running West from Yokut's Park in Bakersfield, CA on the bike path along the Kern River. A fast course with no hills to speak of, you will enjoy running along the Kern River Parkway, which has been landscaped in such a way to preserve a riparian zone that is natural for this area.

5K Course heads in the opposite direction from the half marathon. The 5K is always a competitive event which draws both serious 5K competitors and people who want something to do while waiting to cheer for a friend or family member as they finish their longer race.
