Temecula Half Marathon & 5K
- Go Green!
Join Us for the 4th Annual Temecula Half Marathon & 5K presented by California Coast Credit Union in Wine Country!
Race up and down dirt country roads in wine country, then raise your glass at a finish line beer and wine tasting — all in support of the Rose Again Foundation!!! Presented by California Coast Credit Union and Sandy Feet Events, the 4th annual Temecula Half Marathon & 5K at Wilson Creek Winery has limited space!
The Temecula 5K course travels through scenic back country roads, while the Half Marathon out-and-back takes runners past vineyards and farmland. Both hilly, the 5K is an easier course, while the Half Marathon offers a hard (hilly and hot) challenge. Remember, dirt roads are better on your knees. Temperatures are expected to be chilly at the start for this fall race, heating up to the 90s by midday. Bring cash if you want to drink a little extra. Proceeds from wine tasting goes to the Rose Again Foundation. The Temecula Half Marathon & 5K will take place rain or shine. However, if conditions become unsafe, the race will be rescheduled. No refunds will be made. The Half Marathon is limited to 3.5 hours. If you need to transfer from one distance to another; if you go up in price – you pay the difference; if you go down in price you lose the difference. Race entries are non-refundable and non-transferable.
The Rose Again Foundation seeks to provide a safe, loving and nurturing home-life experience and exceptional liberal arts education to orphaned and foster children. The money raised will be used to improve the lives of foster and orphaned children, the families who foster/adopt them and to aged-out foster young adults.
