Vineyard Half

The Vineyard Half-marathon makes participants work for their brew. Heading off-road, entrants are invited to race through 21 privately owned vineyards including Cloudy Bay, Wairau River, and Saint Clair Family Estate. Taking in views of the Richmond Ranges, Wainui river, and autumnal vines, it’s a famously scenic half-marathon. But the main selling point for entrants is the bottle of award-winning wine each participant receives once the race is over.

11 May 9.00am–3.00pm, Saint Clair Family Estate Vineyard.
