The Half Marathon

The 13.1-mile half marathon course is exceptional and like no other, meandering through picturesque vineyards along the Salinas Riverfront in the beautiful Estrella District of Paso Robles Wine Country.

The First Place Male & Female half marathon finishers will each WIN THEIR WEIGHT IN WINE! This is a long-standing tradition at Wine Country Runs, one our founders started 25 years ago. In addition, there will be plaques, medals and other prizes given to the top finishers. Please visit our Awards & Results page for a complete list of all awards.

Back this year, for the second time, participants and spectators will enjoy a fun and festive post race party at CaliPaso Villa & Winery. Located in the courtyard and on the expansive lawn, we will have music, breakfast burritos, fruit, beer and wine for race participants to enjoy! Each runner will receive a complimentary breakfast ticket in their goody bag. Beer and wine will be available to purchase. Please visit our Race Venue page for additional information.
