    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      Nice, fast course. Air quality was not good but weather conditions were perfect. I would have enjoyed more running on the streets and less running on the bike path.

      This is the third and final race in the Soul Series.You start at Lake Ming, then continue through Hart Park. After exiting Hart park you head up Alfred Harrell Hwy. right around mile ten you head up the hill to the bluffs. The hill is about a mile long and you gain about 200' in elevation, but overall its not a bad climb. You then head towards the finish line while overlooking the bluffs and the oilfields below, the winding course continues past Bakersfield College and then hits the flat streets of downtown, ending with a Kern County Museum finish! Parking: Parking is near the finish line at Sam Lynn Ballpark. There is also parking at the museum. (Since the course is a point to point you have to sign up for the shuttle bus to take you to the start line)Aid Stations: The are aid stations about every 3 miles. They have plenty of water/electrolytes, I think a few even had some fruit. Swag: Judgment Day finisher's medal, Judgment Day Hooded Sweatshirt, Hot Breakfast at the finish line.If you complete the Soul Series you will pick up additional swag. Soul Series Swag: Soul Series Medal, Soul Series Pullover, Custom Head Buff Covering, Fluid Performance Drink.
