About The Napa Valley Women’s Half Marathon
The Napa Valley Women’s Half Marathon is a truly special race, taking place in one of the most beautiful wine regions of California. On March 26th, 2023 you can experience all that this stunning region has to offer as you join hundreds of other women for a 13.1 mile course along picturesque vineyards and rolling hills.
The route starts in downtown Napa at Oxbow Public Market and follows along the Silverado Trail until it reaches Oak Knoll Avenue where runners will turn around and head back towards the finish line. Along the way, participants get to take in some breathtaking scenery as they run through lush vineyards with spectacular views of both Mount Saint Helena and San Pablo Bay from various points on the trail. The route also features several sections with gentle hills which provide some great opportunities for getting a good workout in while still enjoying the gorgeous surroundings.
Weather-wise, temperatures are typically mild during late March so runners don’t have to worry about too much heat exhaustion during their race day experience. This time of year usually sees average highs around 68°F (20°C) with lows hovering around 50°F (10°C). There may be occasional rain showers but these usually come and go quickly so there isn’t much disruption to your race plans if any at all!
When it comes to crowds, expect plenty of friends, family members, locals and tourists alike cheering you on throughout your journey! It’s always encouraging when running past small groups along the side lines shouting words of encouragement or even offering up snacks or water bottles – something that you will certainly find lots of here at this event!
In addition to providing an amazing atmosphere full of energy exchange between fellow racers as well as spectators, this particular half marathon also adds something extra special: post-race celebration activities include live music performances by local artists plus delicious samples from many wineries throughout Napa Valley – making it truly an unforgettable experience for everyone involved!
