Challenge and enjoy yourself at the most unique, social and picturesque running event in NZ.
The Saint Clair Vineyard Half Marathon is set in the picturesque Wairau Valley in Marlborough, where the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc is made.
Join us in stunning Marlborough, the wine and food mecca of the world.
Starting and finishing at the Saint Clair Vineyard Kitchen on Selmes Rd just outside Blenheim, the half marathon (21.1km) course winds through vineyards, up and over short stop banks and alongside the mighty Wairau River. With the Wither Hills to the south, the Richmond Ranges to the north and the vineyards ablaze in their autumn colours, the Vineyard Half is the most scenic half marathon in New Zealand. Less than 4km of the course is on sealed road, and the course is mainly flat with off-road terrain that can be uneven underfoot.
The all-new V12 covers some of New Zealand’s most picturesque vineyards.
Back again in 2022, the V12km course begins at The Vines Village on Rapaura Road and winds through vineyards, over stop banks and alongside the mighty Wairau River. Enjoy the same breath taking scenery as the half marathon, but avoid those last killer kilometres. The new course includes a pre-race party and live entertainment at the start line at The Vines Village, on-course surprises and foodie treats. And as you cross the finish line at the Saint Clair Vineyard Kitchen your trophy bottle of Saint Clair wine will be waiting for you!
