Established in 1979, the Napa Valley Marathon has always been dedicated to fostering and promoting quality road racing in an inspiring setting. Known as the “biggest little marathon in the West,” the marathon has earned a reputation for outstanding runner support, attention to detail, and a beautiful point-to-point course. The marathon is also a non-profit, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years back into the local community of the Napa Valley.
The Napa Valley Marathon strives to maintain our level of excellence and offer the best running experience to runners in one of the most beautiful regions in the world.
The Napa Valley Marathon is a member of the Road Runners Club of America and RunningUSA, the largest and most influential running-related organizations in the world. Several times, the marathon has been host to the RRCA National Championships, Western Regional Championships, and has been voted best road race in the country.
