This is a new and exciting course for 2015! This race will be at the Park at Riverwalk and will not be ran for the full course on the bike path. The route will take you along the equestrian trail and as the name suggests, a riverbed does run through a part of the course.

Inaugural Kern River Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k

JOIN US AT THE

Miracle Hot Springs, Old Kern Canyon Road

Register Now

Run 4 A Way will offer the first ever Kern River Canyon
Half Marathon, 10K & 5K race.  

This will be a chance to get your name in the inaugural record books. Using the quiet and forgotten, runners will be rewarded with scenic views of the steep Kern Canyon walls and occasional glimpses of the Kern River as it crashes and bends its way towards Bakersfield far below.  The relatively flat out and back course begins with a gradual uphill start and rewards runners with a fast easy sloping downhill finish.  
Six aid stations will resupply runners with water and encouragement.  Due to local permitting ordinances, the race will be limited to just a combined 75 lucky runners, so don’t wait too long to register for this new event.

We look forward to seeing you up in our neck of the woods to participate in this great event and support a worthwhile cause. 
More details to come.

Run 4 A Way is a local nonprofit, pending 501c3 status that is dedicated and focused to the unique needs of the citizens of the Kern River Valley.  A significant portion of the proceeds of this event are dedicated to the development of the local Kern Valley High School women's soccer team.

Early Registration ends March 1st

Kern River Trail Runs

online registration at https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=31723

5K/10K and Hilly 10 miler. Section 7 at Hart Park 8:00am start.

•The 5K

The 5K course is out and back from the Hart Park running east from section 7 along the river on dirt and sand path that follows the Kern River. The course is mainly flat with a very short, quick uphill to get away from the river to the finish area in the parking lot..

•The 10 km

The 10 kilometer course starts out flat enough for the first 1.5 miles as it lazily runs along the Kern River. Don't let the easy start fool you, though. Just after the first water station, you will begin running uphill on a paved bike path, but will quickly veer off onto the dirt again. This bike path section marks the beginning of an uphill section that will continue with varying degrees of steepness for the next 1.5 miles. After a loop around an old quarry, the course begins a nice downhill through Toad's gully. The final 3/4 mile is again along the river in Hart Park.

•The 10 mile

This is definitely not the easiest 10 mile jaunt through the hills. However, if you are interested in a bit of a challenge for your quads, come on out and have some fun with us. The 4 climbs of the course are long and gradual with the majority of the downhills occurring in the final 4 miles of the course.
