There is no official prize giving at the Saint Clair Vineyard Half Marathon. We value competing, regardless of whether you’re first or last across the finish line. However, every finisher receives a trophy at the end of the race: a bottle of wine compliments of Saint Clair - one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed wineries.
And then later you can head into Blenheim and attend the very popular 'Finishing Toast' evening function with live music and delicious food and wine. See the Finishing Toast page for more information about this increasingly popular evening event.
