DOWN IN THE VALLEY
Nothing says wine country like Napa Valley. For a true taste of the vineyard lifestyle, head to the San Francisco Bay Area for the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon. The 13.1-mile race starts at Cuvaison Estate Wines, famous for its elegant chardonnays and pinot noirs. Racers wind through thousands of acres of scenic ranches and vineyards to finish in the heart of downtown Sonoma. Those who like to keep their mileage in the single digits can sign up for the GunBunFun- Run 5k which follows the final 3.1 miles of the half-marathon course. Make the race a weekend affair by enjoying the wine-themed welcome reception, expo, pre-race dinner and post-race music festival.
