Activity tags attached to this sportie.

Activities: Virtual race, 2K, 8K

This annual holiday run, organized by TEMPLE BETH EL of Bakersfield, California, is going virtual – and solo – again this year!  Participants will be able to run an 8K or 2K anywhere and anytime during the eight days of Hanukkah.  ALL participants will receive a custom race bib, finisher medal, event T-shirt, raffle entry and Hanukkah swag.  PLUS those who register by November 5 will be able to pick up their T-shirt BEFORE the run start date!  

Participants in the virtual runs will be able to run, jog or walk an 8K or 2K distance on a course of their choosing – in their neighborhood, at the park, on a treadmill – and post their finish time on the “RESULTS” page.  Courses for the 8K and 2K solo runs will be set up at PANORAMA VISTA PRESERVE (https://panoramavista.org/), a scenic 938-acre natural habitat preserve situated along the Kern River in northeast Bakersfield.  Both solo runs will require the use of RaceJoy, a mobile app that will display the course map on a Smartphone, provide participants with pacing information during their run, and automatically post finish times to the “RESULTS” page.  Top finisher awards will be given to participants in the 8K solo run!

Back again – by popular demand – is the holiday costume contest and nightly Hanukkah cookie drawing!  And NEW this year is team registration for ALL event runs.  Teams of 3 or more will receive a registration discount!  The team discount will be available during both early bird and regular registration. Early bird registration ends September 30. 

A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to the KERN RIVER PARKWAY FOUNDATION (https://kernriverparkway.org/), a local non-profit foundation that works to protect, preserve and restore the natural riparian and wildlife habitat of the Kern River.
