About Windsor Run & Wine 13.1, 10K & 5k

Known as the “gateway to the wine country” to the legions of tourists who flock to sample the wines and visit the vineyards of Northern California every year, this small town that lies just over an hour’s drive north of San Francisco plays host this year to the 6th annual Windsor Green Half Marathon, 10K & 5K race.

As the name of the race gives away, the 13.1-mile course for the race starts and finishes on the Windsor Green, a 4 1/2-acre park near the center of town that lies in the heart of what is known locally as Windsor’s “Old Downtown,” and features a historical timeline walk as well as a grove of native valley and blue oaks that are more than two centuries old.

Overview

The 13.1-mile course for the race starts and finishes on the Windsor Green, a 4 1/2-acre park near the center of town that lies in the heart of what is known locally as Windsor’s “Old Downtown,” and features a historical timeline walk as well as a grove of native valley and blue oaks that are more than two centuries old.

From the park area on Windsor Green, runners in the half marathon head out and follow what is basically a clockwise loop route out of the town center and out into the rural countryside to the south and west of town.

After heading west along McClelland Drive, runners turn left and head south along Windsor Road for the next three miles, until they meet up with Mark West Station Road and turn right, heading toward the west and the Russian River Valley area.

The course keeps runners on Mark West Station Road through a series of a few turns, and then turns on Eastside Road between mile markers 5 and 6, where runners will encounter really the only hill of any steepness along the course.

After that, runners continue heading north along Eastside, with views of the flat farmland along the river as they make their way north for the next four miles or so to the intersection with Old Redwood Road.

After turning right on Old Redwood, runners next start heading south back toward the town center and Windsor Green. There’s only a couple of miles left in the race by the time runners make the turn onto Old Redwood, and the finish line lies right in the park where runners started.
