The 10th annual Half Corked Marathon is happening on Saturday, May 26, 2018, and while the run itself is months away, your only chance to get tickets is next week.

Because this 18 km fun run through Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country is such a popular event, the tickets are allocated to those on a lottery-style list. This is the only way to get tickets for the marathon weekend, which has been the two-time finalist for the Canadian Tourism Awards Event of the Year.

Participants enjoy the epic scenery of Canada’s most decorated wine region while sampling wines along the route (often while wearing imaginative costumes). The marathon culminates with a party at the finish line complete with food, entertainment, and of course, more wine!
