Event Information:

 

The Napa Valley Marathon race begins promptly at 7 a.m. The start is preceded by a brief invocation and The Star Spangled Banner. There are 13 aid stations along the course. The vineyards that parallel the race course provide world-class scenery but also have a downside. Most of them feature deep ditches to accommodate irrigation and rain runoff that severely limit parking on crossroads that intersect with the Silverado Trail (race course).

This is an excellent course for beginning marathoners. It is downhill, traveling from 380 feet above sea level to 80 feet above sea level at the finish line. There are rolling hills in the first six miles and the course is relatively flat thereafter.
