We will have a giant cooling station for everyone’s enjoyment tonight! Come out and get this last race in!

Again, its a hot one today. Please take all precautions to manage your run/walk. We will have aid stations, as always, but feel free to bring your own hydration. Take it easy. Cover the distance any way you feel like doing so. We will see you at the finish!!

Race #4 is tomorrow night! You can still register on race day. Please be early enough so that we can start on time.

It will be another hot one here in Bakersfield. Please take all necessary precautions. Hydrate, dress in light clothing, walk if you want. We will have the cooling trailer before, during and after the run plus watermelon, water, snacks, etc.

It is NOT too late to sign up for a Season Pass! Avoid the lines for the rest of the series.

BTC sends a huge THANKS to Team Ibuprofun, Sole2Soul, Bucket List Running, La Rosa Fruit Bars and Garret Alhf (the cooling station trailer), the Taco Truck and the countless volunteers for their support and assistance at Race #1 and we look forward to seeing them again at Race #2.

Of course what would Summer Series be without the services of Peter Wonderly at the announcers table?

Due to a technical issue, we currently do not have the results for bibs 1-144. Please be patient as we work to resolve the issue.
