Joshua Tree Half Marathon

Joshua Tree National Park

Countdown to early registration opening:


We tried something new last year and the Inaugural Joshua Tree Half Marathon was our first ever night race! We've never done anything like this but we think it was a lot of fun. Thanks to all those who joined us. We've got a new course this year that we think you will enjoy. As we make plans for our 2018 event, you can subscribe to our newsletter so you can stay up to date on the latest news on this race. 

The Course

We have made several significant changes and improvements to our inaugural course. This course is a challenging course through the Mojave Desert in Joshua Tree, Ca (just minutes outside of Joshua Tree National Park) near Copper Mountain. The race will start and finish at the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground.
With the exception of a quarter mile at the start and a one mile section in the middle, this course is entirely on dirt roads and trail. The dirt roads will have sand on them adding to the challenge of this course. It is completely runnable, but runners should understand these conditions are difficult and not stroller friendly. That is the price we pay to run under the stars through the desert!

Bib & Packet Pickup

You have a couple of options for picking up your bib and race packet including: at the Race Expo,  or mailed to you.

The race expo will be held at the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in Joshua Tree, CA.
