Runners start the out-and-back course for the Bakersfield Track Club’s A Riverbed Runs Through It Half Marathon inside the Park At River Walk next to the Kern River Parkway Bike Trail. From there, they’ll head across the Kern River for a loop around Aera Park, and then make their way onto the trails that run alongside the river for a long, out-and-back stretch all the way to the turnaround just past Westside Parkway. After that, they had back to the park for the race finish.
