It is time for the 40th Annual Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon. This year’s event is on March 4, 2018. The race kicks off at 7:00 am, and it is not only fun to participate in, but to also to watch.
If you have been looking for the perfect weekend getaway opportunity, why not head out to wine country and catch the race. Stand by to cheer the runners and also take some time for a little R&R while soaking up spring in Napa Valley.
Here is what you can expect while attending the marathon this year:
- Beginners are Welcome: Never been in a marathon before? You are in luck because this marathon is beginner-friendly and most of it will be downhill, which makes the run easier. Also, you are just 380 feet above sea level, which means you do not have to worry about thinning air.
- 5K Run: In conjunction with the Napa Valley Marathon, you have the Greater Kiwanis Club of Napa’s 5k which starts at the Vintage High School at 8:00 am. A 5k run is an excellent option if you are not able to run the full marathon, or you are looking for an easy run while a loved one participates in the full marathon.
- Visit Local Wineries: If you are going to be in Napa Valley, before or after the big race day, you should tour a few of the iconic wineries, such as Andretti Winery on Big Ranch Road or Cosentino Winery. Judd’s Hill and Hagafen Cellars are also good choices with grand
