Highlights

The Napa Valley Trail Marathon course takes runners through the gorgeous natural scenery of Calistoga, California’s Bothe Napa Valley State Park, which is surrounded by forests of towering redwood, oak and bay trees.

Overview

Those running the full marathon will make four loops plus an additional out-and-back stretch, including stretches along the Coyote Peak Trail, South Fork Trail, Ritchey Canyon Trail and Redwood Trail. The springtime race for both full- and half-marathoners begins at the Bothe Valley State Park picnic area, just off Highway 29. From there, the out-and-back course for the 13.1-mile race takes runners westward out along the park trails, including Coyote Peak Trail, South Fork Trail, Ritchey Canyon Trail and Redwood Trail. Many of the single-track trails that participants follow run alongside the waters of Ritchey Creek for much of the early and later parts of the race, which is basically a 6.5-mile loop course that participants run twice — after reaching the aid station back at the picnic area, runners then run the same course a second time, just like in the autumn-season race.
