The Vibrant Vine
Waterfront Park in Kelowna
The Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon accentuates the amazing beauty of the Okanagan Lake and the surrounding valley. The course offers eye-popping vistas along the route and runs through scenic county roads, landmarks, greenways and lakefront parks, finishing in Waterfront Park for the trademark Wine & Music Festival. It’s hard to imagine a more scenic and engaging course, anywhere.
This thriving wine region in British Columbia is producing fantastic award winning wines, which are difficult to find (or purchase) anywhere else. We encourage bringing your friends, family and running partners to spend time to enjoy this beautiful recreational area that runs along Okanagan Lake. Sunday is race day but activities begin on Saturday with the pre-race dinner. We welcome you to beautiful British Columbia, Canada for the Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon!
Where else can you run past vineyards and fruit orchards with vistas of a magnificent 135 kilometer long lake surrounded by mountains, and your finish area situated 21.1 km below in clear view? And the reward at the end is Waterfront Park and beach, filled with music, locally grown foods and unique, premium wines poured by vintners from a dynamic, emerging wine region.
This race starts at the Vibrant Vine and its colorful tasting room complete with its 60’s music and Haight Ashbury themed décor and wine labels. The first 9.7 km of the course meanders through farms, vineyards, fruit orchards, fields and homes perched on a bench above the lake and the City of Kelowna. The relay transition area is at kilometer 12.5 on Cosorso Rd.
The final 6.4 km follow along the lake, eventually passing through City Park for the grand finish next to Waterfront Park and the Delta Grand Resort. A fun-filled Wine & Music Festival in the park await the finishers as they gather to celebrate this magnificent journey and collect their rewards and awards in the park. Relax on the beach, enjoy the views, and explore the eclectic offerings of downtown Kelowna.
