Welcome to Oregon Wine Country

Consider yourself formally invited.  Whether it’s your first time visiting Oregon’s famous wine country or you grew up with the rich soil of the Yamhill Valley permanently etched on your hands, this is the year (our 10th Anniversary) to run the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon (or relay)!

Now managed by the non-profit Oregon Sports Authority with support from race founder Matt Dockstader, Ken Wright Cellars and other local partners, the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon is a celebration of the unique spirit of the Yamhill Valley – a spirit of community, craft, exploration, and of course, the World’s Best Pinot Noir.  So, whether Oregon Wine Country is the place you call home or a place you’d love to get to know, come raise a glass with us on Labor Day weekend!

I sometimes forget how lucky I am to live in Oregon… around mile 9 there was a rooster crowing… the sweeping vision of the vineyards, not to mention the blood red sun casting some gorgeous shade over the fields beat the typical city views for a change.

With a gorgeous course, a weekend of activities and wine tasting at the finish line, I think I’d say this run is a ‘must do’ for anyone looking for a unique half marathon.

This course is not only fun but beautiful and ends better than any other I have seen. I love this race and can’t wait to continue running it for years to come!
