    This race happens mostly on Silverado Trail, part of the same road as the Napa Valley Marathon, and thusly suffers from some of the same drawbacks.

    1) Wine country can get really hot, even in the morning, and the black top makes it worse because any direct sun is reflected back up at you.
    2) The road is uncomfortably canted in a lot of places.
    3) Not-so-gentle rollers. They might not be so bad if it weren’t for the canting, but with both, it can be tough on your legs after a while.

    On the plus side, it’s a small race and was logistically well-run in my experience. As long as you’re not expecting fancy schwag (in 2013 we got a T-shirt and a very nice but small, more traditional medal) and know what you’re in for in terms of the course/weather, it can be a nice little local race.
