Join fellow runners and their families at the Pasta Dinner at the Napa Valley Marriott Hotel & Spa on Saturday, March 3. A variety of pastas (including vegetarian), salads, breads, Calistoga Mineral waters, and Napa Valley wines provided by the Silverado Trail Wineries Association will be served at two seatings. The first seating will be at 4:00 p.m. and the second at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $30 per person. A special program by our Marathon College faculty will be presented between dinner and dessert. Pasta Dinner tickets can be ordered with your entry or can be purchased at race registration over race weekend. Seats are limited to 180 people per seating, so order tickets early. Indicate on the entry form which seating you prefer; seatings cannot be changed on the day of the event. Marathon College speakers for the pasta feeds can be accessed under Marathon College on the website.
Also, a pasta dinner sponsored by the Calistoga Bed & Breakfast group will be held at the Community Center in Calistoga featuring guest speaker Dick Beardsley. Persons who would like to attend should contact their B & B host in Calistoga where they are staying. Others should contact Judy Cook at the Brannan Cottage Inn 707.942.4200.
Saturday evening rates at participating Inns (see the “Calistoga Spotlight” section) will include our wildly successful 4th Annual Pasta Dinner for runners and their support team. The homemade pasta dinner includes salad, cookies for dessert, wine, beer, other beverages and inspirational speaker for runners. The Pasta Dinner begins at 5:30 pm. For runners staying in Calistoga (but not at the participating Inns), the price is $25 per person; reservations are required and space is limited to 100 people.
