This weekend, get ready for the ultimate spring celebration, where you'll get to combine two of your favourite things: fitness and wine. Even if you're not exactly a fitness guru, the Half Corked Marathon Weekend is certainly an activity that's sure to entertain.
Guests staying at nearby Osoyoos hotels can get together May 24 to sample the region's finest wines, take a look at the beautiful vineyards in the Okanagan Valley and duke it out to win the big race. However, being the winner doesn't seem to be the top priority, as everyone gets a custom prize bag and the chance to enjoy a picnic at the finish line.
In true race fashion, the weekend will also entail a pre-race pasta dinner for all attendees, which will include rustic Italian dishes paired with the Okanagan wine country's favourite libations. You'll get to mingle with other visitors to Osoyoos and even possibly meet suite mates who are staying at the Walnut Beach Resort as well!
Also not to be missed is the finish line lunch, whether you're partaking in the race or just watching as a bystander. The picnic-style event is hosted by doLci Deli in Osoyoos, and will offer homemade bread, fresh deli fare and home-cooked desserts as a reward for finishing the race.
