Race Viewing Locations

Ponte Winery and Wilson Creek Winery are located one mile from each other.  There is plenty of room to watch the finish (and start).  We do not recommend attempting to watch the race from the course other than Pauba Rd at De Portola at mile 6.2.  You may use Pauba Rd to access that intersection once runners have passed the intersection of Pauba and Anza Rd. Note:  Vehicles are NOT allowed on the course route during the race and there is NO parking along the course.  Runners will be in the right hand lane along the course route.  Slow vehicle traffic is permitted in the opposite direction, but use detours and obey all officers and course monitors.  Runner and vehicle safety is our number one priority.  Expect Delays if you attempt to drive near the course route!  NOTE:  There is NO parking along the course route during the race!   You may park in tasting room parking areas at participating wineries, if open.  View the course map for more details.
