On this scenic USATF-certified half marathon course, runners and walkers start at Soledad Mission on Ft. Romie Rd. and go south for about 1 mile before turning west on Private Rd. 2 toward the Santa Lucia mountains. At mile 2.4, runners turn on Foothill/River Rd. and run north along the base of the mountains on the River Road Wine Trail. Participants will breathe cool, coastal Monterey Bay air as they pass vineyards and fields of row crops such as lettuce, spinach, carrots and broccoli, before crossing the finish line among the vines at Pessagno Winery for a fantastic Finish Festival celebration!
Entries are non-refundable and non-transferable--no exceptions. We have a "no transfers" policy because it is unsafe to give or sell your bib to someone else, as it is your name and emergency contact information provided when you register, and it is you who agrees to the race rules, policies and waiver. You will need to show your photo ID to receive your bib at the time of pickup.
