Bakersfield resident Spencer Lawrence attempted to run a marathon around the 17th Place Townhomes apartment complex Wednesday morning. Lawrence did the run in hopes of bringing some entertainment to those self isolating in the downtown complex, following the cancellation of the Bakersfield Marathon. His brother, Ken, estimated it would take Spencer 118 laps around the complex to complete the feat. Spencer was hopeful to make the run in three hours.
