Yosemite Half Marathon
SOLD OUT for 2018

MAY 12th, 2018  |  Bass Lake, CA

Enjoy a fast, scenic course through the woods outside of Yosemite National Park!

The Yosemite Half Marathon sells out quickly every year! Get your name on the reminder list so you don't miss out. See you there!

The Course

The first 5 miles of our course will start on Fire Rd and is on a rough terrain trail. There is no steep uphill or downhill here, but it’s not exactly flat either. The last 8.1 miles are identical to our inaugural course. Miles 6-10 are a fast downhill descent on a beautiful paved road. Then after crossing RD-274 (Malum Ridge Rd) you will turn right on N Shore Road. You will run on N Shore Road around Bass Lake until about mile 12.25. From there you will take a left on S Shore Rd. The race will finish at Recreation Point.

Check out this time lapse video for a rough idea of what the course will look like.

When can I sign up for the next one??? :D
