The Experience






Our Story

The Wine Country Half Marathon was born in 2004 when over 1,000 participants ran from the vineyards in southern Napa through the Carneros wine appellation into Sonoma. Spectators cheered runners as they made their way down Broadway and across the finish line in front of City Hall in Sonoma Plaza. Runners then united with friends, family and other runners as they sampled wines cultivated from those same vineyards they passed along the scenic 13.1 mile route. The post-race Wine & Music Festival became a celebration of life, an opportunity for people to meet, relax and reflect. This run, sip and explore concept took hold, and today, Destination Races produces a series of boutique-style events hosted by renowned wine regions and revered by thousands of runners and wine enthusiasts from all over the world.
