About

Registration for this popular event is limited to 2,500 runners due to our commitment to minimize the impact in this beautiful area and to provide our guests with a quality destination running experience. The race sells out fast, so please plan to organize your teams and travel schedule early. The minimum age requirement for the half marathon is 12 years. The Half Marathon course is very scenic and easy to medium difficulty, with gentle rolling terrain on backcountry roads.

We also offer the Hallowine 10k which starts at Martorana Family Winery and ends at the same Finish Line as the Half Marathon at Warm Springs Recreation Area.

*Please note there are no refunds.

Rules

Please line up at the start according to your pace. Elite runners will be positioned at the front with runners lining up behind them by mile pace. Please look for the pace signs posted along the start chute to guide your position. Please do not line up ahead of your pace time! This is chip timed so your time will officially begin when you cross the timing mat at the start line. Top 3 overall are on gun time. Take extra caution as you start the race!

Cones on the Roadways
ALWAYS stay inside right of the cones on the roadways, unless signs or chalk indicate otherwise. Straying outside of the defined cone line is dangerous and could result in disqualification.
Roller Blades, Skateboards, Animals & Bicycles
NO roller blades, skateboards, animals or bicycles on course without permission. Baby strollers designed for runners are permitted but must begin at the back of the starting line.
Portable music
Portable music with headphones are allowed but must be kept at low volume so runners can hear approaching traffic and verbal instructions from law enforcement and volunteers. Failure to abide may result in DQ.

Please obey law enforcement officers and volunteers at all times! They are positioned on course for your safety. In rare cases, law enforcement may require runners to stop to allow traffic to pass. Failure to obey law enforcement and volunteers may result in removal from the course and disqualification.

The Half Marathon Start Line is located at Francis Ford Coppola Winery.

The Hallowine 10K Start Line is located at Martorana Family Winery.
Please note that there is NO parking at the Start of the 10K. Check our Transportation Schedule to plan your route to the start.  The 2019 schedule will be available online closer to the event.

Gear Check

A gear check area is provided at the start line of both the Half Marathon and the Hallowine 10K for runners to place their warm-ups and other items in the bag provided by race staff. Write your bib number and name on the bags and they will be transported to the finish area for pickup. Any items left at the event will be donated to charity after 14 days.

Bus transportation is provided from select locations to the Start Line. There is return bus service from the Finish Line to those original locations.

Event Cancellation + Transfer Policy

Entry fees are non-refundable.

We appreciate you, as our customer, and understand that sometimes you just can’t make the race. We have created a great policy that offers you several different options in the event you cannot attend on race day. (You may choose only one of the options below.)


Defer Your Entry: You may defer your entry to the 2020 event.  Deferrals must be processed by the registration team and an administration fee of 50% of the cost of the following year’s registration cost will be charged in the event you defer.  The deferral will expire after the 2020 event and you will not be able to defer your registration again.  Deferral requests must be submitted by email request to registration@motivsports.comno later than October 12th, 2019.


Transfers: 

You may not give or sell your number to anyone else. However, bib transfers are allowed for an administration charge of $25 and must be processed through your ACTIVE MyEvents account no later than October 24th, 2019. If you transfer your bib, you will receive a refund (minus the $25 administration charge) once the new participant signs up. The new runner will need to pay the full entry fee at the time of the transfer.  This process is in place to avoid any fraudulent sales of race numbers.

Log into your MyEvents.ACTIVE.comaccount and select “Transfer registration” to begin the process.


Purchase Event Insurance: Booking Protect offers Registration Protector, which provides insurance to runners in many emergency and injury situations. This must be purchased at the time of registration, and cannot be retroactively added. If an event occurs that is covered under their policy, you would need to file a claim to receive a full race refund.

For questions and inquiries regarding submitting an insurance claim, please contact Booking Protect using the following methods.
