Join us for the 6th annual Yosemite Half Marathon by Vacation Races, part of the National Park Half Marathons series. This is a gorgeous course through the peaceful Sierra National Forest just outside Yosemite National Park! 

The first 5 miles are a peaceful run through the trees followed by a fast 5 miles downhill. Finish it off strong with 3 beautiful miles around Bass Lake. In May the lake is full and the waterfalls are pumping so there is truly no better time to visit.

The Yosemite Half Marathon sells out quickly every year! Yosemite is calling. See you there!

Note: The Yosemite Half Marathon does not take place inside Yosemite National Park, the course runs through the Sierra National Forest in Bass Lake, CA just south of Yosemite National Park. Most of the pre and post-race activities will be held in Bass Lake and nearby Oakhurst, CA.
