California Classic Century Ride
The California Classic Half Marathon and the California Classic Century rides are on the same weekend again! Join us Saturday April 7th 2018 as we will host 2,000 riders as they get to experience the ONLY bike ride that closes a freeway! Then on Sunday April 8th 2018 we will host 3,000 runners in our Half Marathon and Half Marathon Relay as participants run through African Adventure in Fresno Chaffee Zoo, with a grand finish along home-plate inside Chukchansi Stadium. Or choose our Rock and Run 5k, it doesn't go through the Zoo, but has all of the other benefits of the Half Marathon.
Riders will line up outside of Chukchansi Park before being lead by a police escort to the McKinley on ramp of Freeway 168, where all riders will be released to ride as they wish. Thanks to the California Highway Patrol, City of Fresno, City of Clovis, the Fresno Police Department, and the California Department of Transportation, who have made it possible for riders to ride Freeway 168 for ten miles with no vehicle traffic, from McKinley Ave to Shepherd Ave.
