JANUARY 15 – MARCH 7, 2021


General Registration: $65 -SOLD OUT / Swagless Registration: $30 / Kid’s Crusher Challenge $25

The Napa Valley Marathon and Half Marathon is going virtual for 2021 with an exciting new wine-themed race experience!

The Perfect Pairing is a collection of FIVE individual race distances that runners are invited to complete over a two-month time frame from January 15th to March 7th. You’ll pay just one price to enter ($65 for general registration / $30 for “swagless” registration) and gain access to all five race distance challenges: the Tiny Taste 1 Mile, Grape Gallop 5K (3.1 miles), Vineyard Voyage 10K (6.2 miles), Harvest Half Marathon (13.1 miles), and Barrel Blend Full Marathon (26.2 miles). Complete as few or as many races as you like, in any order! The 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon are  intended to be run as separate, distinct races, but the Marathon may be run in as many segments as you need to reach 26.2 miles (hence the name Barrel BLEND)! Each distance corresponds to a new wine-themed swag item – complete all five and you’ll have a Perfect Pairing set for creating your own wine and cheese board experience (see below).

Once the challenge window opens on January 15th, you’ll be able to start uploading your results to your participant account via a wearable device or manually. You’ll be sent instructions on how to upload results before the challenge begins. When the challenge ends on March 7th, we’ll tally up your results and send you the swag corresponding to the distances you completed!

The Kid’s Crusher Challenge

To complement the Perfect Pairing, we’ve created a children’s event, the Kid’s Crusher Challenge, for our young runners! The Kid’s Crusher invites kids age 14 and under to log as many miles as they can between January 15th and March 7th.
Each registration comes with a downloadable and printable PDF with a mileage tracker and coloring pages to celebrate distance milestones corresponding to the Perfect Pairing. At the end of the challenge, each child will receive a participant beanie! The cost to participate is $25. Registration is NOW OPEN!
