HomeAway Teams Up With Destination Races for Wine Country Half Marathon Series, Adding Comfort, Value and Variety to Runcations



AUSTIN, Texas, June 13, 2017 – Running and red wine? Thanks to the Destination Races Wine Country Half Marathon Series, runners can have their vino and run near it too. And thanks to HomeAway®, runners can perform race prep and recharge in a home away from home. HomeAway, the world leader in vacation rentals, is the 2017 presenting sponsor for the series, which travels to the best wine regions across North America.


 “More and more runners are renting vacation homes for a place to rest and do race prep,” said Melanie Fish, HomeAway’s family travel expert. “Vacation rentals offer the comforts of home, from fully-equipped kitchens for carb-loading, to extra bedrooms for friends and family who tag along, at a lower cost per person than other accommodation options.”


As Official Accommodations Provider, HomeAway will offer VIP race entry upgrades to participants who book a vacation rental on HomeAway.com for either their race accommodations or for their next vacation. VIP access includes breakfast at the starting line, an exclusive warm-up zone with private restrooms and a complimentary recovery brunch at Finish Line VIP Tent.
