Every year in June, Kelowna, British Columbia (BC), Canada, plays host to the prestigious Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon. This exciting event is a unique blend of athleticism and appreciation for the natural beauty and world-class wines the region offers.

The event is like no other, winding through vineyards, picturesque Kelowna, and along the beautiful Mission Creek Greenway, culminating at the stunning waterfront in downtown. The run is on Saturday, June 15, 2024, followed by a post-run beverage and music festival. Choose between a Half Marathon (21km), 10km, or 5km race. For those unable to attend in person, we offer a virtual run option so you can still participate and receive a t-shirt and finisher medal.
