This unique event will have you running with animals! After leaving Chukchansi Stadium, you will run through the Chaffee Zoo on the way to one of Fresno’s most popular areas, the Tower District. On your journey back to Chukchansi Park, you will run through our newly renovated Downtown area. Enjoy the music and fun themed water stations along the course. As you cross the finish line, you will be able to see yourself on the giant screen inside of Chukchansi Stadium. The California Classic Weekend's Half Marathon is a walker-friendly course.

Event Start Location
The half marathon and 2 person relay start at Chukchansi Stadium in downtown Fresno.

Course Description
The event features a half marathon, two-person relay teams, or a 5k. The route follows a loop course that will start and finish at Fresno's Chukchansi Park, the home of baseball's Fresno Grizzlies, the AAA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants major league baseball team.

Once runners leave the starting line in the park, the race course then heads out into downtown Fresno, taking runners past a number of local landmarks like the Fresno City Hall, the recently renovated federal courthouse and the historic Old Fresno Water Tower.

After the run through the city's downtown, the race then heads inside the grounds of the Fresno Chaffee Zoo. Runners will get the chance to run through the zoo's park roads and past a number of animal exhibits before heading back out into the city.

Next the race takes runners past the city's Tower District, where many of its popular clubs and restaurants are located, and then heads back over to Chukchansi Park for the race finish inside the baseball stadium -- and where runners will be able to see themselves on the huge diamond vision screen as they cross the finish line.
