Water is the usual liquid of choice for thirsty race runners, but the Half Corked Marathon takes a different approach. Participants are encouraged to sample wines from the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association along the route, while noshing on bites prepared by local chefs, restaurateurs and cafe woners as they run, job, walk, or crawl the 18 kilometre route.

Sounds pretty amazing right? Well the sitch is that given the overwhelming interest, runners need to enter a lottery to participate – there are 650 tickets available. The lottery opens on Monday, February 10 at 9 a.m.

The 4th annual Half Corked Marathon takes place in Oliver Osoyoo Wine Country this May 24, 2014. Tickets for the marathon cost $139 per person.

Inspired by the legendary Medoc Marathon in Bordeaux, the Half Corked Marathon is an homage
to one of Canada’s most decorated wine regions and is the celebration of two benches in
particular – the Golden Mile and Black Sage Road.
