Wine Country Half Marathon will mean traffic hiccups in Kelowna today

The always-popular Wine Country Half Marathon will be held in Kelowna today.

Half marathon runners will begin at The Vibrant Vine winery and weave their way through Southeast Kelowna before the race takes them along the lakefront to the finish line at Waterfront Park.

You can see the full route here. Those participating in the 10 km race will begin their journey at DeHart Road, while 5 km runners will begin at Gyro Beach Park.

To accommodate the large event, there will be intermittent road closures throughout the city this morning, beginning as early as 6:30 am and ending around 11 am.

While there are no full, extended road closures during the event, flaggers will be at several points along the route to temporarily halt traffic while runners cross roads and intersections.

Here’s a list of Southeast Kelowna roads that could see traffic delays while the Wine Country Half Marathon is underway:

  • Pooley Road
  • Bemrose Road
  • Reekie Road
  • Hart Road
  • Todd Road
  • Saucier Road
  • Bedford Road
  • Casorso Road
  • Swamp Road
