About Turtle Marathon

This race is staged each September as summer is beginning to give way to fall here in the city that’s become synonymous with UFOs thanks to the 1940s “incident” and the television shows, movies and docudramas that have popularized it ever since.

The annual Turtle Marathon, Half Marathon & Labor Day 5K offers some of the lowest entrance fees of any race of its kind in the nation, as well as the beauty of the surrounding desert scenery and a course on which many runners may have a chance to actually win, thanks to the often small size of the participant fields.
