About The Hallowine Run

The Hallowine Run (formerly Healdsburg Wine Country Half Marathon) originated in October of 2008 after Destination Races founder Matt Dockstader attended the world-renowned Marathon du Medoc in France. His vision was to create a wine harvest themed race in one of America’s most iconic wine regions – with the flair and colorful costumes he witnessed at the Medoc event. Held annually on the Saturday of Halloween week, the event has become a favorite on the national and local running scenes.

Age Limit

Half marathon is 8 or older. A bib number is required for every participant.

Aid Stations

We will have water and hydration stations every 2 - 3 miles. Portable Restrooms will be located at every aid station. Ambulance will be on the course and at the Finish Line. Medical tent will also be available at the finish.

Maximum Time

There is a strict 3.5 hour time limit for the half marathon.. Participants can stay on the course and proceed as pedestrians but the roads need to be reopened to traffic. It's always a good idea to carry your own fluids as well as a map of the course, since mile markers and other course signs may be taken down while you're still on the course. Some of the race amenities may not be available after this time period. We make every effort to keep the race course amenities and finish line open until the final runner crosses the line. However, it is difficult ensure all finish line festivities will be available. More importantly, try not to worry about how your performance compares to the other participants. Running in a race is all about setting a goal and achieving it, and the only person you should be competing against is yourself. So whether you come in first or last, you're still accomplishing something major.


Downtown Healdsburg has plenty of free parking. Give yourself plenty of time!


Computerized B-TAG Timing chip will be used. Results will be posted at the event.

Healdsburg City Hall



From the starting line near the Healdsburg City Hall, the USATF-certified course takes runners along country roads through Sonoma County’s mountain valleys, and features a downhill finish for the last few miles that will give plenty of runners a chance to notch personal record race times.

After they head north along Grove for the first mile, runners then turns and begin a long trek southward along Highway 101 toward the first turn onto Westside Road and then for a long stretch along Dry Creek Road.

Run along terrain that’s made up of all paved surfaces throughout the race, the course features a mix of flat stretches and gently rolling hills through the wine country for the first several miles — including views of the area’s Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley — and then the last few miles take runners along a downhill stretch into downtown Healdsburg, all the way to the finish line near the corner of Vine Street and North Street.
