The Santa Rosa Marathon is returning in 2020 for another fun day of running through the heart of California’s wine country! Join thousands of runners across four race distances and experience the pastoral beauty of late summer in Sonoma County. As if that wasn’t enough of a reason to run, you also get treated to two free beers at the finish line plus a rockin’ after-party featuring a pancake breakfast and an unlimited tasting glass at the Santa Rosa Beer Fest!
The flat and fast half marathon course runs through downtown Santa Rosa and along the Santa Rosa Creek Trail and Prince Memorial Greenway. The full marathon course also extends into west Sonoma County passing by scenic vineyards and even running through the barrel room of DeLoach Vineyards!
The Santa Rosa Marathon doesn’t end at the finish line – the fun continues with the Santa Rosa Beer Fest in the Old Courthouse Square on Saturday and Sunday featuring a pancake breakfast for all runners, two free beer at the finish line and a free tasting glass for the Santa Rosa Beer Fest for runners 21+, vendor booths, music, wine, and more!
