Jenny 's thoughts:

The SoCal Wine Country Women's Half Marathon & 5k had it's 5th anniversary this year. The challenging but yet runable course is at the Vail Lake Resort near Temecula, CA. I had the pleasure of running the race and volunteering with my husband at race packet pick-up and at the finish line.

Packet Pick-up: Available at Laces Running Store for a week before the race or between 6-6:45a on race day

Race distances: Half Marathon or 5k

Race Time: Half Marathon started at 7am, 5k I believe at 8am

Time Limit: 4 hours for the half marathon

Race Location: Vail Lake Resort near Temecula

Course: Beautiful, runable trail

Aid Stations: 4 aid stations on the course, 3 of which we saw twice. They had water, CarboPro & Gu.

Finisher's medal: Medals were from my friend Eric at Elevation Culture. Half Marathon medals had purple & green on them.

Shirts: A beautiful purple tech shirt with the same race logo as the medal.

Additional Swag: Logo'd wine glasses & a ticket for one glass of wine after the race.

Overall this was a fun and well run race. I would definitely do this again, hoping of course to have fresher legs. And maybe just a little sun ;).
