Who is ready to run and drink wine this upcoming weekend?! Oliver, BC is the place to be this weekend and the weather is looking FANTASTIC.
With the 1st Annual Baldy Marathon kicking off on Oct 1st, followed by the renown Festival of the Grape, there is no time for hesitation- register for the Baldy Marathon today! Runners will indulge in their choice of 10K, 20K or full marathon through the scenic wine country of the Okanagan Valley. Along the Okanagan River with the soothing sounds of water, mature trees, and calling birds that will keep you zen as you head towards the picturesque Osoyoos Lake. The course is almost entirely flat, with limited time spent on roads or pavement. What more can you ask for in a foot race? How about starting and finishing at a world-renowned wine festival!
