Our Mission at Wine Country Runs

Wine Country Runs, founded in 1997, is a non-profit whose sole purpose is to support local charities and youth sports organizations in San Luis Obispo County!  The Half Marathon Run/Walk, 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ 1/2 Mile Fun Run are set along picturesque country roads and vineyards- truly perfect for all ages.
First place male and female winner of the half marathon win their weight in wine and each participant receives a complimentary breakfast, one complimentary wine or beer tasting (for those 21 and over), t-shirt, swag bag and much more!
