10th Annual Fueled By Fine Wine 1/2 Marathon

Chris Nagy’s Grand Finale!

After a ten-year run that saw it go from an intriguing idea to one of the most highly regarded running events in the country, Chris has decided to retire as race director and owner of this successful event. This years Fueled by Fine Wine Half-Marathon will be her final event as we celebrate the Tenth Anniversary edition.

Date is set for Sunday, July 7, 2019.

This innovative event has drawn tens of thousands of runners to the rolling hills of the Dundee area over the years, and has been featured in Runner’s World magazine multiple times, including being named #13 among the best half-marathons in the nation. I feel one of its charming idiosyncrasies is that a large part of the route runs through the vineyard rows of some of the most famous wineries in Oregon.

After ten years of creating, promoting and managing a one-woman show, I plan to focus more on my four kids. I take immense pride in the event and its impact on local wineries, and other businesses.

Fueled by Fine Wine’s success has been the product of huge support from Oregon’s best wineries, local communities and, of course, all the fabulous participants. The press coverage has been very gratifying. I’ve always tried to provide the most authentic Dundee Hills experience possible, and people have really responded to that. Fueled by Fine Wine 1/2 Marathon has always been about YOU the runners and the wines – a perfect pairing!

I wanted to provide plenty of notice before my final event. And I can’t resist a bit of intrigue as well.

Who knows – maybe like a great rock band, there will be a ‘reunion tour’ someday if the right person or organization wants to run it foward…

Join me by securing your spot, grabbing your favorite people and planning a long Fourth of July weekend of wine tasting and running in the Dundee Hills. You will get the T-shirt showing you were there – for my farewell run.
