“I have run the Livermore Half every year since the inaugural year, earning a legacy status this year. It is well organized and offers one of the best medals around. Usually the medals have been aesthetically nice as well as functional (coasters, wine charm, bottle stopper).“ @MHmama from Tracy, CA

“Beautiful course through scenic, rolling vineyards. The weather was perfect and the race organization was solid. Wine and beer at the end was delish and the band was rockin’.“ @Jessica_Seilhan from San Ramon, CA
