The hugely popular Napa Valley Marathon, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, is coming up soon. Registration is now open and fills quickly. Sign up here so you don’t miss out.
The Napa Valley Marathon is dedicated to fostering and promoting quality road racing in an inspiring setting. Known as the “biggest little marathon in the West,” the Marathon has earned a reputation for outstanding runner support, attention to detail, and a beautiful point-to-point course.
The race will once again start at 7 a.m. near the Solage Calistoga resort at the northern end of the Napa Valley. The race finishes at Vintage High School in Napa. Race headquarters is the Napa Valley Marriott Hotel & Spa, where a Sports and Fitness Expo will be held Friday, March 3rd and Saturday, March 4th.
Runners will see some fire scarring along the east side of the Silverado Trail, but the 26.2 mile course was remains unchanged.
The Napa Valley Marathon is a member of the Road Runners Club of America and RunningUSA, the largest and most influential running-related organizations in the world. In 2013, the Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon was voted the best road race in the country by the Road Runners Club of America.
Project partners are our major sponsors including: Kaiser Permanente, ASICS America Corporation, and the Napa Valley Marriott Hotel and Spa, as well as Comcast, KPIX Ch5 and the CW, KCBS AM and FM Radio and KVON Radio.
The Greater Kiwanis Club of Napa offers a 5K run in conjunction with the Napa Valley Marathon on Sunday, March 4, 2018. The run begins at Vintage High School at 8 a.m. and ends at the marathon finish line before the first marathoners arrive. The 5K run is a great option if you can’t go the full marathon distance or are waiting for your marathoner to finish their race!
This year, runners will have the chance to support relief efforts following this fall’s devastating wildfires. A portion of entry fees will go to benefit the North Bay Fire Relief Fund.
If you can’t run the race but wish to support fire recovery efforts, this year you have the opportunity to become a virtual runner. All virtual 2018 Napa Valley Marathon runners will receive a shirt and medal—and $75 of the $100 registration fee will be donated to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund.
