Half Marathon

November 4th, 2017   |   Joshua Tree, CA


JOSHUA TREE LAKE RV & CAMPGROUND » The race expo, start line, and finish line will all be at Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground in Joshua Tree, CA. There will be plenty of parking for everyone at the campground. We will not be offering any shuttles from the surrounding towns, so please plan accordingly!

The Course

STROLLERS, WHEELCHAIRS, AND HEADLAMPS » The course is on hard, packed dirt roads, however there are sections just technical enough to cause problems if you're pushing a stroller or wheelchair. Because of this, combined with the fact that the race will be a nighttime event, we encourage you not to push strollers or wheelchairs as you run. Additionally, we require everyone to bring a headlamp to run with.

Finish Line Entertainment

JOSHUA TREE ASTRONOMY ARTS THEATER » On race night from 7:00 - 11:00 pm at the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground (expo and finish line location), runners and their friends and family are welcome to join us at the outdoor astronomy theater complete with telescope viewing and education. The race has taken care of all admission fees, so this event is free! The Joshua Tree Astronomy Arts Theater is the world’s first and only live astronomy theater that offers spectacular views of the night skies. Their goal is to share, educate and promote astronomy in order to preserve the dark skies of the California desert and everywhere, for future generations.
