The Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon is not just a running race, it’s a destination lifestyle experience. Destination Races produces the Wine Country Half Marathon series in renowned wine regions across North America. Loudoun County plays host to this popular event located in and around historic Leesburg, VA, one hour west of Washington DC on June 4, 2016.

The race starts and finishes at bucolic Doukenie Winery, the perfect venue for hosting the post-race Wine & Music Festival, Presented by Visit Loudoun. This scenic, tree-laden course runs north of the winery on historic byways, passing vineyards, farms, ranches and estates along the way. Come experience the race of a lifetime as we welcome you to Virginia and DC’s Wine Country!

Kara Davis's thoughts:

In all honesty, this race is boring, expensive, and not worth the drive or money. The humidity is rough for a race that doesn’t have any crowd support or music or livelihood. At the finish, there wasn’t water easily accessible and you had to pay for any food of wine (um it’s a wine race). Not even one free glass for finishing. The shirts were an ugly puke green color with random ducks on the back and the expo was not an expo. I felt terrible because I convinced a friend to run her first half with this race and it was awful. Luckily, we convinced her to stick with it. We honestly had so much fun after the race going to a great dinner and ubering to different wineries ourselves. There are plenty of other half races you can do for $100+ that give you a little more swag and support.
