This is a beautiful, gentle 10 km course showing off some of the best vistas in the South Okanagan. The flat or gentle downhill route is easily managed by running or walking.

The start line is right inside a genuine Hops Farm, from there scenery just gets better as you come along the Kettle Valley Railway and clay banks above the lake and into Penticton’s downtown.  After a few brewery samples and a couple food/water pit stops you’ll travel along the waterfront, past the historic paddle wheeler and down the channel waterway. A couple blocks off the channel runners will visit the last brewery and cross the finish line to celebrate with everyone in the garden patio of the Kettle Valley Station Pub located at the Penticton Ramada Inn and Courtyard.  The finish line is located right across the street from the morning shuttle pick up location.
