Temecula Half Marathon Course 2017Half Marathon Course 

The Half Marathon race will start and finish at Monte De Oro Winery and loop through this wine country valley where you will be able to enjoy sights such as vineyards, horse ranches, magnificent estates, and farmhouses full of character. And, as a true Diva run, you will enjoy our "Diva stations" along the way, with entertainment spots and our famous Boa & Tiara station.

  • Starts and finishes at 1,459 ft.
  • Total elevation gain over 13.1 miles of 534 ft.

The course takes place in the rolling hills of Temecula Valley's Wine Country. Please refer to the course map for an elevation chart. The event will begin at 1,459 ft and will experience a slight uphill path for the first 0.66 of a mile, followed by 3.4 downhill miles descending at 211 feet over this distance. At mile 4, the only "climb" of the route begins where for the next 0.6 of a milerunners will gain 168 ft. However, this climb is only rated with a 3% elevation grade and thus does not even classify to be categorized as a climb. ​As for road surface, the first 6 miles are paved with the exception of about 440 yards on Vino Way which are hard packed dirt and gravel, all in excellent condition. This is also the flattest section of the route. Some sections between miles 7.5 and 10 have looser gravel over very hard packed dirt, so we suggest choosing a more structured running shoe for this event. The last 1.1 miles are paved. 

Temecula 5K Course 20175K Course 

This amazing 5K course was designed to bring you the best of Temecula.  If you are not yet ready for the 13.1 challenge but you are a running diva or a diva lover (for all the handsome casanovas), this race is is for you.  Enjoy a great run and an amazing and empowering experience or support the leading lady in your life!

Similar to the Half Marathon course, the 5K race will start and finish at Monte De Oro Winery and loop through the wine country valley!
