Temecula Half Marathon & 5K
- Go Green!
Join Us for the 4th Annual Temecula Half Marathon & 5K 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 local school gardens!!! Presented by Sandy Feet Events, the 4th annual Temecula Half Marathon & 5K at Wilson Creek Winery has limited space!
Make a day of it in Temecula!
After the race, show your bib number at neighboring wineries for a discount off wine tastings and bottle purchases. Runners can add beer or wine tasting to race registration for $10 which includes a signature glass. Proceeds from wine tasting will be donated to Temecula Valley Slow Food.
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 Temecula Valley Slow Food’s School Garden Project.
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.
Awards will be given to males and females 3 deep in each age category in increments of 10 (0-10, 11-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+).
We will have medals for the Half Marathon Finishers as a way to celebrate your accomplishments. In an effort to be as “green” and as affordable (to all) as possible, there are no other bells and whistles – your entry gets you a race and shirt, and nothing made with cheap labor to throw away later. For people who want wine and souvenirs they are made locally, eco friendly, and available for a minimal charge at registration.

- We need you! If you don’t want to run but still want to participate, we would love to have more volunteers! You can make new friends, join in the fun, enjoy live music and be a part of a great event. Volunteers are a very important part of Temecula Half Marathon & 5K, without you it would not be possible to host a fun and safe race. For more info and the volunteer sign up form CLICK HERE.
Do you believe that what you eat impacts your health? If you believe that there should be more awareness about alternative, nutrition based treatments for disease, then you may want to make your race a “Run for Real Healing” to support the Gerson Institute. When you register, you can make a donation to the Institute or even create your own fundraising page for the race. Create your fundraising page here: http://www.active.com/donate/Gerson
- Sandy Feet Events strives to provide eco-friendly events to the San Diego community. Below is just a glimpse into our efforts: - Reduce paper waste by requiring at least 80% of total pre-registered race field to register online - No mailing of paper registration forms - Provide recycling bins at the event and recycle cardboard, paper, plastic and other materials - Provide information to athletes about public transportation options and/or provide them with ride-share options on your website - Offer a clothing and/or shoe recycling/reuse program (old running shoes and apparel can be recycled and/or contributed to charity organizations) - Replace traditional race bags (AKA swag or goodie bags) with an online or virtual version. It eliminates the need and expense of printing, paper not to mention the plastic bags - No single-use disposable plastic bottles for water or sports drink distributed at the finish line - At least 80% of all marketing and participant communications facilitated through email or website updates instead of paper mail - Reuse at least 80% of all signage for the event
