2018 Napa Valley Harvest Half Marathon, 10K & 5K
We are sad to report that this Sunday's November 11th race has been cancelled due to the wildfires in Butte County and the resulting effect it is having on the air quality in Calistoga. We consulted with all the local agencies including County of Napa, our Emergency Medical Services teams & California Highway Patrol (the latter two, whose services will now be needed elsewhere) to confirm this decision. All registered participants have been emailed.
There's no better place to experience autumn than the Napa Valley.This exciting road race starts and finishes at the Calistoga Beverage Company (865 Silverado Trail N), in the heart of Calistoga in the north end of scenic Napa Valley. The whole course is on Silverado Trail (a paved roadway) starting at the Calistoga Beverage Company to the various turnarounds for the 5K, the 10K and the Half Marathon. Run route retraces itself back along Silverado Trail (which will be closed to car traffic) and back to Calistoga. The course is flat and fast with only two minor hills. Post event festivities will take place in Calistoga. The entire route is surrounded by vineyards and wineries with great vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges including Mt. Saint Helena and the picturesque Palisades. The mild fall weather, autumn colors and the musk of the fermenting, recently harvested wine are a sure treat this time of year. This event is limited to 1000 participants so don't wait too long to register!
Most of our events do not allow audio devices, but due to the nature of this course being on the road (not single track trails) AND because the course is closed to car traffic, headphones ARE allowed for this race.
This event is in no way associated with the 39th annual Napa Valley Marathon (the road race) on Sunday March 2018.
