Join Mojave Marathon

Our goal is to bring a day of fun and running to the the beautiful desert. We work with the local community to leave Mojave better than we found it. Each year profits from the marathon are donated to Mojave community development projects. Join us and run, volunteer or sponsor our event and help us give back to the Mojave community. Everyone is welcome!

Since that historic day in the desert, we’ve had great events each year with more and more people involved and this year will be better than ever! It will not only be an outstanding event for the runner, but also a fun family day out.

The race includes a full marathon distance, a half marathon distance and 5K.  We expect 300 runners this year with guests and race supporters making up 500 people.  The route starts and finishes at the Stu Witt Convention Center at Mojave Air and Spaceport, where the Expo will be based.

The route is mainly dirt roads and trails in the desert. Approximately 5 miles of the full and half marathon routes is run on quiet roads (leaving and returning to town). The off road route will be in the desert, amongst the Joshua trees and between the wind farms. Dirt road and trail conditions will vary. The majority of the route is hard packed but some areas are sandy.

There are two road crossings which will be managed with the help of volunteers. Traffic in town is minimal. Right of way will be given to any traffic around. Unless otherwise instructed runners should follow normal road running rules for the paved sections of the route (running against the traffic). More instructions will be given at packet pick up and on race day.

Course Highlights

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.
