Average Rating:  
Recent Review: I have been running the Bidwell Classic since 1981. I have run all over California as well as out of state. The Bidwell is still my favorite. My daughter has also run with me since she was 15. Many fond memories. I'm in the 70 to 99 group now and plan on running this event untill I can break the record for age. Many thanks to the Chico Running Club, Fleet Feet and all the sponsors over the years.
