Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon @ Leesburg, VA

The Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon is not just a running race, it’s a destination lifestyle experience. Destination Races produces the Wine Country Half Marathon series in renowned wine regions across North America. Loudoun County plays host to this popular event located in and around historic Leesburg, VA, one hour west of Washington DC.  This is the only event in the series held in the eastern US.

The race starts and finishes at bucolic Doukenie Winery, the perfect venue for hosting the post-race Wine & Music Festival, Presented by Visit Loudoun. This scenic, tree-laden course runs north of the winery on historic byways, passing vineyards, farms, ranches and estates along the way.  Come experience the race of a lifetime as we welcome you to Virginia and DC’s Wine Country!
