October 25th- Wine Country Half Marathon

virginia-half-marathon

 

This wine harvest and Halloween themed race runs through the renowned Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys in late October when the weather is ideal for running and the autumn-colored vineyards glow in the warm sunshine. A visually stunning course takes cleverly and colorfully-attired runners along a course dotted with vineyards and wineries along the way.

This event is a favorite in the Wine Country Half Marathon series, and sells out early!  It was voted best Destination Race in the Pacific West by readers of Competitor Magazine.  The expo is held at the Hyatt in the historic Railroad Square of Santa Rosa, California and other race related activities are planned during the weekend, giving race participants a perfect excuse to plan a run and wine country escape to Healdsburg. Bring the family and friends to help celebrate your accomplishment in one of the most vibrant and dynamic wine regions in the world!
