Palm Desert Half Marathon
The New Balance Palm Desert 1/2 Marathon & 5k is the Coachella Valley's original running festival! The race starts and ends in beautiful Civic Center Park, and both of our courses include scenic views of the surrounding, snow-capped mountains. Run or walk as an individual or as a member of a two or three-person relay team.
The half-marathon course is a continuous loop that starts at Civic Center Park and takes you past the Palm Desert, land of Coachella.
The registration fees include a race T-shirt, finishers medal, post-race snacks, one free beer in the beer garden, and awards.
Kids can particpate in the Palm Desert One Mile Kids Race. They'll receive a finishers medal and a snack.
Participants who also sign up for the Desert Triathlon receive a discount on their registration fees.
