THE INAUGURAL WINESHINE HALF MARATHON & 3.9-MILER
The nonprofit Napa Valley Marathon, Inc., is thrilled to launch a new summertime race in our beloved Napa Valley, the WineShine Half Marathon & 3.9-Miler. The new race, which starts and finishes at the Silverado Resort & Spa, was held on July 16, 2022. The course runs along the famed Silverado Trail, passing by sweeping vineyards, beautiful hillsides, and iconic wineries along the way. After the race, participants will gather on the grounds of the Silverado Resort to enjoy complimentary wine tasting from a sampling of local vintners, listen to live music, and celebrate their finish.
During the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020, NVM Inc. dreamed of getting back to work. Out of their wistful conversations came the creation of the WineShine Half Marathon. The WineShine Half Marathon and 3.9-Miler was created to celebrate summer in the Napa Valley and what this region is best known for, wine! The summer races will support community causes to include Napa Firewise and the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation.
The WineShine Half Marathon strives to maintain the NVM, Inc. level of excellence and offer the best running experience to runners in one of the most beautiful regions in the world.
