Event Cancelled

Please accept our sincerest apologies. Mother Nature has not been kind to us lately!

We received the latest water test for Lake Ming the afternoon of Sept. 8. The outcome is that the lake will remain closed as new standards are being implemented this year. Our options for other sites did not come to fruition so we were forced to cancel the September 25th running of the Historic Bakersfield Triathlon.

Refunds will be processed via Active. com over the next few days (Sept 9-10).

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you are able to find another triathlon to compete in during the fall season.

Please rally to support us in 2017
