Waterfront Park: 1200 Water St, Kelowna, Canada
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 Beverage & Music Festival. It’s hard to imagine a more scenic and engaging course, anywhere.
The race has a limited-size field designed to offer our participants and their guests the finest destination experience possible. A team competition, two-person relay and 5 kilometre distances are offered. Runners and fast walkers must be able to complete the course in 3 hours and 30 minutes, keeping a pace of 10 min/km (16 minutes per mile).
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. We welcome you to beautiful British Columbia, Canada for the Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon!
You’ll love this scenic and fast course starting on the East Bench above Kelowna at The Vibrant Vine with magnificent views of the lake and downtown Kelowna. After a descent from the East Bench, the course runs along the greenway, then the lake before finishing on the promenade in front of the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort. Everyone then gathers in expansive Waterfront Park to celebrate their accomplishment at the Wine & Music Festival in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable. Activities are planned all weekend so bring your friends or family and plan to stay and play in this spectacular playground in the heart of British Columbia, Canada!
