Palm Desert Half Marathon

February 09, 2020 · Palm Springs, CA

Distance: 13.1 miles, 1K, 5K

The Palm Desert ½ Marathon & 5k is the oldest ½ marathon in the Coachella Valley. The race starts and ends in beautiful Civic Center Park.

  • ½ Marathon: Run as an individual, or as part of a two person or three-person relay team.
  • 5k: The 5k run takes place on a completely closed course, and is incredibly flat and fast.
  • 1k kids run: For kids 4 to 13!


Awards will be given to the top three in each division/age group in the ½ marathon and 5k. Overall winners are not eligible for age group awards. The 1k kid’s run is untimed, and therefore, awards will not be given out in this distance.
