There is no place more stunning in wine country than Sonoma Valley on a late September morning. The inaugural Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival 12K and the historic 5K runs will take you through some of the most scenic areas of downtown Sonoma, through vineyards, and majestic tree covered roads. This event is open to individual runners, families, groups, and even those that would just like to take a morning walk.
The 12K and 5K runs will start in the downtown Sonoma plaza at 8:30am Sunday 9/29 on Spain St. in between 1st St. East and 1st St. West. The runs will begin in opposite directions but merge onto Lovall Valley Rd. as they continue onto the famous Sonoma Bike Path with a spectacular finish back in historic Sonoma plaza.
Don’t feel like running a 12K? Get your family out and take on a perfect 5K run/walk along the bike path, up around Brazil St. past Sebastiani winery, then back down to the Sonoma plaza.
In conjunction with Destination Races, Native Sons of the Golden West, and the City of Sonoma, the event proves to be one that you don't want to miss!
