NEW THIS YEAR! THIS HALF, THE KERN RIVER TRAIL RUN 10 MILER AND MR. TOAD'S WILD RUN 20K ARE NOW PART OF THE BAKERSFIELD TRACK CLUB'S INAUGURAL DISTANCE CHALLENGE!
This year's participants will not only receive a discount for each race by signing up for all three in advance, but the first 150 to register and then successfully complete all three events will receive all three of the items that will be featured for Distance Challenge participants. There will be separate registration for the series to sign up for all three races and receive discounted race pricing. Participants who sign up for each individual event and complete each event can still participate in the series challenge, but will not receive special pricing.
