Bakersfield Track Club will host its annual Kern River Trail Runs at Hart Park this Saturday, April 28.
Participants can choose either a 5K, 10K, or 10 Mile course through the hills of Hart Park. Participants should expect dirt, maybe mud, uneven footing, and lots of climbing.
Finishers will get a specially designed finisher hat instead of the typical finishers medal; keeping this event unique. Awards will be given out to top three finishers male and female in each race.
Race day registration starts at 6 a.m. and races begin at 7:30 a.m. Online pre-Registration will be open until Friday, April 27. More information can be found at the Bakersfield Track Club’s website at www.bakersfielddtrackclub.org/events.
Funds raised from this event will go towards the Bakersfield Track Club’s scholarship fund, which provides generous donations throughout the year to local youth running groups to participate in events such as the Junior Olympics, USATF Track and Field National Championships, Cross Country National Championships, and other local running events.
