Wine Country Half Marathon intermittent road closures

June 10, 2022

Traffic Advisory (Updated June 17)

The Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon returns this summer, offering runners the chance to enjoy scenic routes through some of Kelowna’s vineyards. The event will take place Saturday, June 18, beginning at The Vibrant Vine Winery and ending on the lakefront promenade outside the Delta Grand Okanagan Hotel. For event details, visit kelownamarathon.ca.

To accommodate this event, traffic control measures will be in place in Southeast Kelowna beginning at 6 a.m. on Saturday. Half-marathon runners will depart The Vibrant Vine Winery (3240 Pooley Road) at 7 a.m., turning east onto Pooley Road. Flaggers will be on site to hold traffic while runners enter the road. 

The route then follows Bemrose, Reekie, Hart, Todd, Saucier and Bedford Roads to the roundabout at the intersection of Casorso and Swamp Roads. Runners will then enter the Mission Creek Greenway. Due to recent local flooding on the Greenway, runners will cross Gordon Drive at the Mission Creek overpass, and Lakeshore Road just north of Mission Creek at Truswell Road. Flaggers will be on site at both crossings to temporarily hold traffic while runners pass.  

All traffic and road restrictions will conclude by approximately 1 p.m. on Saturday.
