Race Description

The Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon is the newest event in the popular series produced by Destination Races. It’s also the first in the series held outside of the United States. Kelowna is the largest city on stunning Okanagan Lake, a year-round recreational paradise in British Columbia, Canada.

This emerging wine region is set amongst beautiful mountains and lakes, with abundant sunshine and ideal growing conditions for many premium wines and many varietals. Whether you’re a novice or experienced runner, you’ll love this scenic course starting on the East Bench above Kelowna at The Vibrant Vine with magnificent views of the lake. Not only is this a half marathon course but it can also be a two person relay! At the relay transition area runners are treated to magnificent views, music, an aid station and wine tasting!

The course eventually runs along the greenbelt and the lake and finishes in expansive Waterfront Park for the post-race Wine & Music Festival. Activities are planned all weekend so bring your friends or family and plan to stay and play in this spectacular setting!
