This time next week the 30th Annual Napa Valley Marathon will be underway. If you’ve driven around the valley at all in the past couple weeks you’ve surely noticed the hundreds of bright orange signs alerting you to the fact that the marathon is coming up.

The race officially starts at 7am in Calistoga and the course, which winds down Silverado Trail all the way to the city of Napa, officially closes at 1pm. Here’s the list of roads that will be closed during the marathon, straight from the Napa Valley Marathon website:

Silverado Trail from Calistoga to Dunaweal Lane: 5:30am – 8:00am
Silverado Trail from Dunaweal to Deer Park: 6:00am – 9:00am
Silverado Trail from Deer Park to Highway 128: 7:00am – 10:00am
Silverado Trail from Highway 128 to Yountville Cross: 8:00am – 11:00am
Silverado Trail from Yountville Cross to Oak Knoll: 8:15am – 11:45am
Oak Knoll to Vintage High School: 9:00am – 12:30pm

Last year, Steve Sundell from Redwood City won the race in a time of 2:21:03.0 and the winner on the women’s side was Devon Crosby-Helms of San Francisco, who finished with a time of 2:52:49.0. Here’s hoping the weather next Sunday is a whole lot better than it is today!
