One of the most hotly anticipated (and sold out) events in Western Canada, the Half Corked Marathon weaves racers along an 18km route through the beautiful vineyards of the Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country, sampling wines and fine food along the route. Bordered by mountain ranges, rivers, and lakes, the area is majestic by nature – and naturally unique, just like the Half Corked Marathon.
Half Corked Marathon
Created by the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association, and inspired by the legendary Medoc Marathon in Bordeaux, the Half Corked Marathon pays homage to one of Canada’s most decorated wine regions; a celebration of the Golden Mile and Black Sage Road benches connecting the communities of Oliver and Osoyoos.
Taking place on Saturday, May 28, 2016 this is the sixth year of the Half Corked Marathon, which can be walked or jogged. Racers are not timed and fancy dress is encouraged! Visit 10-12 wineries and food stations along the route where you can sample wines and fine cuisine from Oliver-Osoyoos restaurants.
