The route starts and finishes at the Stu Witt Convention Center at Mojave Air and Spaceport. A beautiful marathon in the Mojave Desert. Only 590 ft of elevation gain, but at a starting elevation of 2738 ft. The course covers 20+ miles over desert dirt roads and trails, winding through windfarms and Joshua trees. The first and last 2-3 miles are run on quiet paved road coming from and heading back into the town of Mojave where the start/ finish is.
The Mojave Marathon began four years ago. Julia Tizard, Virgin Galactic’s Director of Operations, had been training hard to run the London Marathon. Due to unforeseen reasons, she was unable to travel and participate in the marathon. Undeterred by this, she was set on putting her training to use. She chatted with colleague and fellow athlete Scott Ostrem, TSC’s Chief Engineer, and they collaborated a route in the Mojave Desert.
