This was my first time running the Bidwell Classic. I didn't realize it until after I received the medal, but this year was the race's 41st year! No wonder it is appropriately titled, 'The Bidwell Classic". The course is a loop course that takes you two times around lower Bidwell park. The path is nice and wide which allows participants to easily pass one another as needed. The course was clearly marked and the aid stations were well stalked. One of my favorite things about this race was the scenery. A large portion of the race follows a meandering river through the park and is nicely covered by shade trees. I would highly recommend this race if you're looking for a smaller, local, flat-course race.
