The Grape Stomp Half Marathon, 10K & 5K in Livermore October 20, 2013

October 20, 2013 – Robertson Park, Livermore, CA

The Grape Stomp is back again for a 10th year at Robertson Park in Livermore. We have sold out the last three years so register early!

Note about new course directions this year.

As this event has grown it’s become clear that we need to readjust the courses again for 2013.  The half marathon distance will now head out to the vineyards first and return to Robertson Park before heading out on the Arroyo Mocho Trail.

This gets the hills and the exposed part of the course over with before the heat comes up for the day. A new loop has also been added to avoid congestion and collision with 10K and 5K runners. We think this will be better for everyone.

The 10K and 5K will now both head out to the vineyard trails by Holdener Park before returning to Robertson Park.

For 2013 all timed runners must be pre-registered. We will not provide timing chips to race day entrants.

You can register online, by mail or at either of the packet pickup locations before the event to receive a timing chip.

T-Shirts are only guaranteed to pre-registered runners. All pre-registered participants will receive a technical wicking shirt.

Half Marathon participants will receive a sports duffel bag and custom finisher medal. T-Shirts for race day entries are available at the end of the race but we may not be able to guarantee your size.

Awards will be provided for overall finishers in each race, three deep for male and female. Age Group winners will receive a commemorative  wine glass.
