About Death Valley Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K

Trail running doesn’t get any better than this, wide jeep road twisting through the towering red rocks of Death Valley’s Titus Canyon. The fact that runners have been coming back for this event for years must mean something! You can enjoy an out-and-back relatively flat course while admiring the beauty of the surrounding desert. Your immediate surroundings are the exotic flora and fauna found only on the desert floor from the starting point at Furnace Creek Ranch along Hwy. 190 through the heart of Death Valley National Park. All races start and finish at the Furnace Creek Ranch. The entire course is below sea level, completely surrounded by desert wilderness and boasts panoramic vistas of the mountains surrounding Death Valley.  This is the most spectacular trail event of the year and well worth the weekend away, it might be the most unique course you will ever run!
