Basket Drawing

The StartEach year several businesses throughout the Napa Valley and beyond, donate items for our famous baskets. Money raised from this drawing goes to local charities. Prizes will be awarded 10 minutes after the keynote speech on Saturday at the Marathon College at approximately 1:50 p.m. Baskets filled with prizes donated by local merchants will be awarded immediately after the awards ceremony on Sunday. Winning baskets at Sunday's drawing will be picked based on bib race numbers and runners must be present to win. Tickets for Saturday's drawing may be purchased at the Information Booth on Saturday morning at the Sports and Fitness Expo.
