Overview

From the starting line on the small town’s main street of Geyserville Avenue, the course heads first north and then west, turning onto Canyon Road and taking runners into the Dry Creek Valley.

It’s run mostly through Sonoma Count’s Dry Creek Valley. A couple of miles along Canyon Road lead to Yoakim Bridge Road, and then a right turn to head south on West Dry Creek Road, which runners will follow for the next 4 1/2 miles.

The hilliest stretch of the race occurs in the first couple of miles; after the steep climb between miles 1 and 2, the race begins a long and very gradual downhill for most of the remainder of the race, punctuated by numerous gentle, rolling hills throughout the course.

The rest of the course is framed by the mountains on the right and the flat vineyards that stretch out for miles on the left, as runners make their way past more than a dozen wineries through Dry Creek on the way to Healdsburg.
