Run. Sip. Savor.

It’s that time of year! The Napa Valley Marathon and Half Marathon are coming to Calistoga this spring, and you won’t want to miss your chance to enjoy luxury accommodations while you pursue running excellence. Whether this is your first long-distance run or you are an accomplished marathoner, the Napa Valley Race is a one-of-a-kind way to earn that coveted 26.2 sticker. The race follows along the Silverado Trail and is world-renowned for good reason – you will pass by some of the most beautiful countrysides in the United States. Your running spirit will stay high with scenic vineyards, time-worn farmhouses, and the unmatched Napa Valley air lightening each step.

Race InformationA paved road running alongside a vineyard while the sun rises behind.

The race begins at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 1, 2020. With a net downhill of about 250 feet, this race is ideal for those wishing to qualify for the Boston Marathon in April. Though many experienced runners participate, this race is welcoming to runners of all skill levels, including those who prefer a half marathon or a 5K.

The race itself has twelve aid stations along the full marathon route, with water and Nunn readily available as you progress. Both the women’s and men’s winners (and in both the full and half-marathon) will receive an etched double magnum as well as a Napa Valley Collective case, which is a 12-bottle selection of the finest wines in the valley. Not quite fast enough to come in first place? You can still enjoy champagne to celebrate your accomplishment back in your room or on our multi-level redwood deck.

The Luxury Accommodations Every Runner Deserves

No matter your race length, the Calistoga Wine Way Inn and Craftsman Inn are the right place to lace up the night before and an even better place to celebrate after. Of course, if you’re here to cheer on your runner and aren’t racing yourself, there’s no better place to sip a glass of local wine and unwind while you hear all about the beautiful memories they made on their run.  Finally, take a much-deserved rest as you tuck in between your sheets, with no concerns for the bustle and crowds at other, less intimate lodgings. Book your stay with us now for this exciting race!
