JANUARY 15 – MARCH 7, 2021


The yellow mustard flowers are blooming in full force here in the Napa Valley and we’re ready to welcome you for a weekend getaway! Are you planning to pick up your swag in person on Saturday, March 13th from 10am – 3pm at the Napa Valley Welcome Center (1300 1st Street #313 – At Randolph Street and behind Makers Market, Napa, CA 94559)? If so, please use this form to “RSVP” so that we can correctly estimate the number of swag bags to pack and bring to the curbside event. Please note that curbside pick up is not available for the Kid’s Crusher Event – all kid’s beanies will be mailed. This outdoor event will follow all COVID protocols and masks will be required for pick up. If you do not pick up your swag in person, it will be mailed to your shipping address the week of March 15th.

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 (registration is now closed) 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).

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! Please note that kid’s crusher beanies will not be available for curbside pick up – all beanies will be mailed.
