About Race

The Bakersfield Amazing Race is an annual race that is part scavenger hunt and part obstacle course.


Where brains beat brawn! Teams of 2-4 people solve clever clues and face fun challenges all while navigating the urban landscape via foot! It’s a scavenger hunt, with all the thrills of the amazing race, mixed in with trivial pursuit, throw in a mini road race and add a dash of cat-and-mouse. And voila! You’ve got the Bakersfield Amazing Race!

Online registration ends at 6 pm on Friday, March 11th.
