The Bakersfield Marathon is a USATF-certified full marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K taking place on Sunday, November 14th, 2021.  Our world-class event features the starting line, finish line, and celebration on the California State University, Bakersfield campus. Participants run through dozens of iconic neighborhoods and landmarks including the Stockdale Financial District, Oleander, Downtown Bakersfield, Westchester, Kern County Museum, La Cresta, Bakersfield College, and the striking Panorama Bluffs before returning to the finish line along the scenic Kern River Parkway.  Look for music along the course with a live band at the Celebration Beer Garden!
