This point to point course starts near Napa and follows the back road to Sonoma through the wine country. It is not a super fast course but it is very beautiful. Great medals, t-shirts and wine tasting. This race is part of the Destination Race Series.

About our series:

Destination Races takes you to some of the finest wine regions in the world, providing an opportunity to truly smell, taste and feel the terror of each unique destination. Each event is crafted like a blend of fine red wine, to be enjoyed and savored. Within each event and each location you’ll see something new, and experience what makes the Wine Country Half Marathons so special. Most races sell out, so make your plans early to come stay and play, the Destination Races way!

This scenic and fast 13.1 mile course starts at Cuvaison Carneros Winery where runners congregate in one of the most beautiful start areas anywhere. You’ll warm up next to the winery alongside rows of rolling vineyards and a reservoir. Runners must be dropped at the entrance to the winery by bus or by vehicle in the Domaine Carneros parking lot. There is NO parking there or anywhere near the start area!

Out of the starting gate, you’ll take a left turn on Duhig Rd. and make your ascent up Butt Burner Hill. Once over the crest it’s a beautiful cruise downhill into the Carneros wine appellation. Enjoy vistas of the Napa-Sonoma Marshes Wildlife Preserve, San Pablo Bay and Mt. Tamalpais in Marin as you wind through hundreds of rolling acres of vineyards and wineries. The course also passes ranches and farms filled with a variety of animals including horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, llamas, chickens and donkeys.
