About The Rattlesnake Hills Wine Run
The Rattlesnake Hills Wine Run in Zillah, Washington on 20 May, 2023 is a fantastic half marathon for both experienced and novice runners. The course takes you through beautiful vineyards and rolling hills with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.
The route begins near the Rattlesnake Hills AVA Tasting Room in downtown Zillah, winding its way through some of the most picturesque countryside in eastern Washington state. You will pass by several wineries along your 13 mile journey where you can stop to admire their stunning grounds and sample some fine local vintages. As you make your way up into the higher elevations of the Cascade Range, take time to appreciate the stunning panoramas that await you at every turn.
Weather-wise, May is usually mild with temperatures ranging from 40-70 degrees Fahrenheit depending on elevation changes throughout your run. Expect plenty of sunshine as well as clear skies which will make for an enjoyable race atmosphere all around! Crowds are typically quite large since this event has been gaining popularity over recent years; expect plenty of cheering sections throughout and lots of friendly faces to keep your spirits high during those tough miles!
What makes this race particularly special is its unique wine pairing feature at certain points along the route: participants receive complimentary tastings from various wineries who sponsor each year’s event – how cool is that?! Not only do you get to enjoy running a challenging course but also indulge in some delicious wines too! Each participant receives two bottles upon completion (one red & one white) so there’s something for everyone no matter what their preference may be.
All things considered, it’s easy to see why so many people look forward to taking part in this incredible half marathon each year – if it sounds like something you’d like too then I highly recommend signing up before spots fill up!
