Established in 1979, the Napa Valley Marathon, Inc. Board of Directors created the Napa Valley Marathon. Over the years, the marathon earned a reputation for outstanding runner support, attention to detail, and a beautiful point-to-point course. 2019 saw the addition of our half marathon to the portfolio, making race weekend experience available for more runners to enjoy the Napa Valley. The marathon is also a non-profit, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years back into the local community of the Napa Valley.

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.

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.
