Joshua Tree Half Marathon

Saturday, Nov. 7th, 2020, 6:15 pm Joshua Tree, CA US 92252 Directions
Event: Half Marathon
As the sun dips below the horizon, the party begins with a night race through the desert! This has quickly become a favorite of thousands to cap off their racing season!

This is a challenging course though. This will be a night run. Running through the desert at night comes with unique challenges - the course will not have lighting.

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 trails. The dirt roads will have sand on them adding to the challenge of this course. The loose sand on course that, depending on recent weather and traffic conditions, can range from hard-packed dirt to deep sand (imagine running on the beach).

The darkness and the loose sand make this a challenging course and not stroller friendly. Runners should take these conditions into consideration when choosing this race.

*Headlights are required
**Gaiters and buffs/bandanas/etc. are recommended
