Cool Races in Beautiful Places.

A slogan so simple, yet with layers so complex, as with a fine glass of wine. The Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon was born on July 11, 2004 as 1,200 participants ran from Napa through the Carneros wine region into Sonoma Plaza before gathering for the post-race Wine & Music Festival. With that very first event our vision started to take shape. Today, our boutique-style events are revered by thousands of runners and wine enthusiasts from all over the world.

We produce memorable destination running experiences that celebrate life. Each race has its own unique characteristics but all run through scenic wine regions and feature accompanying wine and food themed events showcasing the local bounty. At Destination Races it’s about quality, not quantity. All our races have limited fields and sell out early, by design. We view our customers as our family and friends, and we look forward to each future gathering.
