Burger Run 25k and Double Burger Run 50k in Kernville, CA

This 15 mile trail run is equally challenging and picturesque.  The Burger Run uses the rugged Whiskey Flat Trail starting in Kernville and finishing at the renowned McNally Fairview Lodge.

McNallys is best known for its mouth-watering giant steaks, but somewhat less known and equally revered is the hamburger shack which serves up hamburgers good enough to make the most ardent vegetarian wane.  To all who finish the run, a complimentary McNally burger awaits you.  To get there, expect a tough run on a trail that is somewhat neglected in the middle and rarely sees much even terrain and resembles a favorite roller coaster.

For information at to register, click here.

In 2014, Men's Health is returning with our 9th annual URBANATHLON series, celebrating the Men's Health work hard, play hard mentality. The URBANATHLON challenges competitors-or more accurately, flat-out dares them-to set new personal standards for what it means to be fit.

Whether you are taking on the classic distance or the sprint distance course, the URBANATHLON is the ultimate test of endurance, strength, mobility and pure toughness. Post race, the excitement continues at the Men's Health URBANATHLON Festival, with DJ sets, food and drink, and tons of stuff from our sponsors to demo, sample, and take home.

We put on three races in Chicago on 10/18, New York on 10/25, and San Francisco on 11/23.
