2017 Destination Races: Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon

2017-destination-races-napa-to-sonoma-wine-country-half-marathon

It’s the second most wonderful time of the year…. Registration for the 14th annual Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon and GunBunFunRun 5K opens December 1st. The race sold out in a record 17 minutes in 2016, so be sure to pay attention to the registration instructions below as the process has changed from previous years. Next year’s race date is Sunday July 16th.

 

Here’s the skinny:
INDIVIDUAL + VIP and TEAM registration open on the SAME DAY!

Individual + VIP registration is on a first come, first serve basis and will sell out in minutes. Read registration rules and tips below.

All legitimate teams of 6 or more people that register within this time frame will be allowed to register (see Rules and Tips below). Team registrations are $5 less than individual registrations.

Registration RULES and TIPS:

Individual + VIP
Do NOT open multiple browsers or attempt to register early! This will only slow the process down and potentially freeze you out.
Once you have entered all your information on the registration page, only push the submit button once. If you push it more than once, you will get charged more than once!
Once the race is sold out, you may sign up for our 2nd Chance Drawing free of charge. The sooner you register to be on the list, the better your chances for getting into the race via the 2nd Chance Drawing which will be held on March 1, 2017. At least 100 spots will be released on that date via a drawing. Winners will be notified on the same day.

Team registration

To sign up a team, first have a TEAM CAPTAIN register the team. They will need to pay for one registration and establish a team name and a required passcode for additional team members.

Team registration is open for two weeks – until November 25th. You MUST have a minimum of 6 members on a team by the time of closing on the 25th at 11:59pm PST.  Additional members will be charged when they register for the team.

If your team does not have a minimum of 6 members at the time of closing each team member will be refunded their entry fee less a $10 processing fee.  You will not be signed up as an individual in the race!

Teams may have a maximum of 20 people. If you are going to exceed 20 members you must set up an additional team with at least 6 members. You may transfer members from a team with over 20 to a 2nd team in order to attain 6 members.

Team registration is scheduled to stay open until November 25th. However, we suggest registering your team as soon as possible.  In the unlikely event that we far exceed our team registrations spots, we may be forced to close team registration before November 25th. This is not likely to happen but we reserve the right to close it in order to not exceed our total registration limit.

Thank you for your understanding as we try to make this process as stress-free and fair as possible for our valued customers. Please note that Race Extras events will be available for purchase at a later date. For more information, please visit our website. For any questions not answered on our website, email raceinfo@destinationraces.com. GOOD LUCK!
