The Saint Clair Half Marathon. Toyed with the idea of running a half marathon? Down at Saint Clair there’s a half marathon around their vineyards. Bagpipes hoot from one vineyard, while a banjo and bongos play at another. Competitors can stop and savour delicious tasters along the way, including the refreshing sauvignon blanc gelato, while those intent on a fast time can just look forward to the free bottle of Saint Clair bubbles at the end. Below is a photo of the Te Rerenga O te Ra kapahaka group at the gelato stop. Find our more about the event and the group here.
