Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon
The Napa Valley Marathon and Half Marathon has established a Legacy Program, created to reward our loyal customers and offer a special experience over race weekend. Our Legacy Program begins with tracking participants dating back to 2012, giving us 12 years of history to acknowledge our favorite runners. Runners work their way toward a 5-time or 10-time participant level within the Legacy Program and receive a set of perks based on your current level.
