Únete Peach City Runfest
Penticton combines the idle pleasures of a beach resort with its own edgy vibe. It’s long been a final stop in life for Canadian retirees, which adds a certain spin to its Salish-derived name Pen-Tak-Tin, meaning ‘place to stay forever.’ The town today is growing fast, along with the rest of the Okanagan Valley.
Penticton makes a good base for your valley pleasures. There are plenty of activities and diversions to fill your days, even if you don’t travel further afield. Ditch Hwy 97, which runs west of the center, for Main St and the attractively walkable downtown area, which extends about 10 blocks southward from the picture-perfect lakefront; avert your eyes from the long stretch of strip malls and high-rise condos further south.
With that being said, the Peach City Half Marathon is the place to be!!
If you’d like to experience a Peach City event without committing to 42K, the 21K race is for you! This is a distance that almost everyone can handle with some smart training and good spirit. Whether you are a seasoned runner or a first timer, you can expect to be cheered all the way.
Running a half marathon is both physically and mentally demanding. While it is imperative to train smart, slowly building up distance and endurance, it is also important to eat correctly and stay hydrated before, during and after the race.
Whatever level of participation you choose, from hoping to set a personal record to just wanting to go the distance, you’re sure to enjoy an exciting race experience at the Peach City RunFest in scenic Penticton, BC.
