The 2016 Saint Clair Vineyard Half Marathon was another ripper, thanks to the gorgeous weather and fantastic energy brought by every single person who took part in this iconic Marlborough event.
Thanks to everyone who joined us and helped celebrate our 10th Vineyard Half. The gorgeous course through autumnal vineyards, punctuated by gourmet Marlborough treats such as handcrafted chocolates and local honey and live on-course entertainment was a hit with all.
Here’s what people have been saying about this year’s event and after-party:
David Taylor, Blenheim: “Probably the best half marathon in a vineyard setting, anywhere in the world. Better get in quick.”
Patty Bouchard, Portland, Oregon: “My husband and I traveled from Portland, OR for this event. It was truly an awesome experience. Thanks!!”
Suzy Monds, Te Aroha: “Fantastic…one of the best events in NZ…we’ll certainly be back.”
Angela Taylor, Blenheim: “Congratulations on another wonderful day. Great course, spectacular scenery, with entertainment and perfectly timed yummy treats. Love the new finish area. See you next year.”
Carol Lankshear, Waikanae: “Has to be one of the most picturesque places to do a 1/2 marathon – enjoyed my walk today.”
Bridget Penfold, Hamilton: “Fantastic event. Thank you for making my first 1/2 marathon such an awesome experience. Love it 😊”
We’ll be back again next year for more of the same blend of challenging fun, merriment and Marlborough goodness.
Entries for the 2017 event will open in mid-October 2016 so look out for further details around then.
Look forward to seeing you next year on May 13, 2017 – save the date!!
