Travel Info

When you register, we’ll ask you to indicate when you plan to pick up your bib. Your choices to pick up your packet are:

Where to Stay

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. This campground will also be the most convenient place to stay during your weekend! You can make RV reservations here, however tent spaces are all first-come, first-serve. There should be plenty of room for our runners.

MORE PLACES TO STAY » If camping doesn't float your boat, there are lots of hotel options nearby in Twentynine Palms, Joshua Tree, and Yucca Valley. If those places are booked up, you can find even more options in Desert Hot Springs and Palm Springs, but expect at least an hour drive to the race!

Where to Fly

PALM SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT » Palm Springs International (PSP) is the closest airport to the race location. It's only an hour away from Joshua Tree and most airlines fly here!

ONTARIO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT » A little further out is Ontario International Airport (ONT). It's about a 1 hour and 45 minutes away, but has most airlines available. This is a smaller airport and tickets can get expensive, so book early!

LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT » It will be easy to find a flight to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) from most places, however it will be at least a 2 hour and 45 minute drive. If you get caught in LA traffic, the drive could be closer to 5 hours. Plan accordingly!

Restaurants & Activities

Yucca Valley is the economic heart of the Joshua Tree Gateway Communities, and our friends at the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce have rounded up some of the best hotels, restaurants and shops providing special promotions for the Joshua Tree Half Marathon! Be sure to stop by their website and check out all of the businesses excited to welcome us to town! 

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.

Registration is Open!
