Saint Clair Half Marathon - Get Running!

Saint Clair Vineyard Half Marathon - 9 May 2020

This has to be one of the most unique, social and picturesque half marathons in New Zealand. Run through stunningly beautiful Marlborough vineyards, the Saint Clair Half has become popular as a girls weekend away, with many groups of participants having an hilarious time dressing up for the event. There's even a post-race party 'Revelry' that will have you forgetting your aching limbs and dancing the night away.

The half marathon course takes you through gorgeously scenic private vineyards that you would be unable to visit otherwise, and while every half marathon event challenges participants to push themselves to their physical limits, this one has more emphasis on enjoying the occasion. Relaxed competitors can stop and savour delectable tasters along the way, including refreshing sauvignon blanc gelato and at the end celebrate with a bottle of Saint Clair's finest!  

So, if you're half way fit and looking for an excuse for an absolutely fabulous weekend away with friends then you'd be mad not to get your entry in for this one. It will be a sell out and soon, so don't delay - get your entry in today.
