Run the Baldy Marathon
On Sunday, October 1st, runners will indulge in their choice of a Marathon, 20K, 10K or Kids Race on our one-of-a-kind course along the Okanagan River. The soothing sounds of the water, mature trees and calling birds will keep you zen as you head south towards picturesque Osoyoos Lake. The course is almost entirely, flat limited time spent on roads or pavement. What more can you ask for in a foot race? How about starting and finishing at a world-renowned wine festival!
Your 2017 Baldy Marathon race fee also includes full entry into this year’s Festival of the Grape, a commemorative Baldy Marathon t-shirt, finisher’s medal, and access to the roving shuttle race-day transportation – operating both to and from Oliver and Osoyoos all day.
Oliver, British Columbia
Path along the Okanagan River
