Always perfect, Napa Valley offers mild temperatures and beautiful skies all around. Because the spots fill up soon, it is best to plan ahead to get a spot. Over one hundred runner’s participation positions are reserved for those who are running for a cause.The whole community comes alive with the excitement of the marathon. From race pasta dinners to a VIP reception, there is no shortage of activities for out-of-towners to participate. A smaller marathon with a big heart, this is one not to miss.
