Starting and finishing at the award winning Woodbridge Winery, our flat, fast and friendly half marathon and 5K courses traipse past the beautiful scenery of grape vines and mustard seed in full bloom.

    It’s very flat and fast. There are some very small rolling hills in the beginning (VERY small). There are plenty of water stations. The course is well mapped. The medal was cute. The awards were cool. My ONE critique is that there aren’t very many spectators so you’re kind of alone out in the country roads. That can be bad or good. It’s kind of a personal preference.

    Great event!! Tony and the Fleet Feet crew really did a great event with this event from responding to emails right down to giving me an extra medal for Run buddy and my Running Club VIP tent access.

    + Nice swag bags with color specific tech shirts for Male / Female
    + Medals for all finishers
    + Awards
    + 2 Wine pours for each finisher
    + VIP tent with unlimited pours and extra snacks.
    + Punctual start
    + Pacers from the Tri Valley Running Club (another I am a member off and almost paced the the event myself)

    The run itself was a bit of an odd one for me.. the course was all road which I was totally unprepared for but made it great for a new PR. The first mile I had a few wardrobe malfunctions – My hydration vest was bouncing about so I had to re-adjust it and then my Pandora kept cutting out every 60 seconds so I spent a good 10-12 minutes playing with that trying to fix it. I swear the Runners behind me must have thought I was already on the Wine because I was I all over the place!
    Once adjusted thought and found my ”happy pace” all was good and I spent about 6 miles right behind another members of Mountain House Running Club.
    The course marshals and volunteers at the Aid Station were great and full of energy encouraging us all as we paced though. I’m not sure if he was a volunteer but right around the 12:75 mile mark there was one guy who really encouraging me as I sped down the home straight.. not going to lie, I was really feeling the many miles of asphalt (trail runner here) and getting pretty tired so his enthusiastic cheers gave me that last little push I needed to get across that Finish Line.

    I really am not a road Runner but overall this event was great and I will likely do again.. The whole experience was made better by the fact that I was here with an awesome group of supportive people.

    Fleet Feet Stockton is awesome. I signed up for Avenue of the Vines hoping to complete the Valley 13.1 series which also included the Tiny Half (Galt) and St. Joseph’s (Stockton). This one started at Woodbridge Winery in Lodi, and you did get a good run through the vineyards, but there were also stretches near barns/cows/livestock too. Swag included the race medal, a stemless wine glass engraved, free race photos printed on the spot for you to take home! V-neck mesh women’s tech shirt too.
