The Napa Women’s Half Marathon & 5K Road Race will use a wave start system in Oxbow Commons Park. The Half Marathon will consist of 5 separate wave starts while the 5K Road Race will have 3 separate wave start times. Runners will self-seed themselves into groups along McKinstry Street in Oxbow Commons Park according to your estimated Half Marathon & 8K finish times. Each group will be staged in holding corrals prior to the start of their group. Please follow the instructions of the starting line volunteers and look for the large pace signs and our “Official Pacer” Pace Team Members in each Corral!
Reminder to Runners: The bib tag timing system will not record a starting time for a runner until that runner has crossed the timing mats at the start line. Time spent waiting to cross the start line is NOT included in the scored finish time for a runner.
The course time limit is 4 hours.
Race Management will have aid stations at every 1.5 miles along the Half Marathon & 5K Courses complete with Water, Gatorade, Ice and portable restrooms. NAPA County EMS will also be located at four locations on the 13.1-mile route and at the finish line!
