The eighth annual Grapes of Half Marathon is set! Grapes of Half, produced by Pink Buffalo Racing, will feature rolling hills, scenic countryside views and three of Willamette Valley's premier wineries, Noble Estate Winery, Silvan Ridge Winery and Sweet Cheeks Winery.
Park at Silvan Ridge Winery or Sweet Cheeks Winery to be shuttled to the race's start at Noble Estate Vineyards. This point-to-point race takes amongst farmland and includes some challenging hills to climb. Wildlife is usually abundant along the course; a local hog has even been known to run alongside contestants for a short while.
Custom event wine glasses and finisher medallions will be presented to all finishers. Age group medals will be awarded to the top three in each age division, which are in five year increments. Post-race refreshments are included, as well as three complimentary wine tickets that may be used once at each winery featured on race day. Live music and relaxing activities will take place at Sweet Cheeks Winery post-race.
