Held in one of South Australia’s best-kept secrets, and just 45 minutes from the CBD, starting and finishing on the grounds of the beautiful Hardys Tintara Cellar door, the half marathon course takes in the Shiraz Trail between McLaren Vale and Willunga, with a loop along the rail trail between McLaren Vale and Seaford. The 10km and 5km courses are a fast dash towards Willunga and back.
