The 14th May 2016 is our 10th anniversary! Look out for lots of great improvements to the most unique half marathon going around.
Tickets for 2016 are now SOLD OUT, so big apologies to those who did not manage to get a ticket. If you want to ensure you get here next year, please add your name to the Sign Up Here box on the right of this page so you’re among the first to know when entries open for our 2017 event.
Runners and walkers travel through private vineyard land, enjoying spectacular outlooks of river, vine and mountain. In case that’s not enough to keep tired spirits soaring, bagpipes hoot from one vineyard, while a banjo and bongos play at another. Relaxed competitors can stop and savour delicious tasters along the way, including the refreshing sauvignon blanc gelato, while those intent on a fast time can just look forward to their trophy of a free bottle of Saint Clair wine at the end.
With gorgeous scenery, unexpected entertainment, delicious tasters and a bottle of Saint Clair wine to celebrate your achievement, running doesn’t get much better than this.
And while you are here for the Saint Clair Vineyard Half Marathon, you might as well make a weekend of it and celebrate your achievement with your friends at our post-race party – ‘Revelry’.
Since you’ll be hungry, we’ve got the best of Marlborough’s incredible produce – think clams plucked from the surf at Cloudy Bay, cheese crafted from the milk of Marlborough Sounds goats, fat blueberries from the Wairau Valley, and wild game from the high country.
Since you’ll need a drink, we’ve got Saint Clair wines and award winning craft beers, along with lots of non-alcoholic options.
Since you’ll want to continue conversations started amid the vines, we’ve got a vintage lounge, with luxurious furniture. And since you’ll surely have the urge to dance, we’ve got a great band that will force you out of those chairs.
This is a night to talk, to eat, to drink, to dance, and to revel in your success. This is a night to fall even further in love with Marlborough.
