The Hallowine Run (formerly Healdsburg Wine Country Half Marathon) originated in October of 2008 after Destination Races founder Matt Dockstader attended the world-renowned Marathon du Medoc in France. His vision was to create a wine harvest themed race in one of America’s most iconic wine regions – with the flair and colorful costumes he witnessed at the Medoc event. Held annually on the Saturday of Halloween week, the event has become a favorite on the national and local running scenes. The event offers an opportunity for participants, family, and friends to enjoy an extended stay in wine county with various activities around the race. Your journey includes a stunningly beautiful autumn-colored 13.1 mile course in the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys, with the reward of a post-race festival featuring eaturing exhibitors, regional wines, food, beer, live music, and the highly entertaining costume contest. All in this beautiful setting at Warm Springs Recreation Area below Lake Sonoma!
