Chris Platano of Portland was the fastest finisher in Sunday's Fueled By Fine Wine Half Marathon in Dundee.

Platano, 25, who ran collegiately for Willamette University, covered the challenging 13.1-mile distance in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 12 seconds. The fourth annual event followed a course that connected vineyards in the Dundee Hills and had a trail run feel to it. 

Platano was more than eight minutes clear of second-place finisher Brian Bernier of McMinnville. A total of 1,130 runners completed the race in inside the five-hour time window.

Meredith Willett, 30, of Portland, placed 11th overall and was the top femail finisher in 1:33:31. But it was a close race. She beat Theresa Hailey of Portland, 24, by only nine seconds.

The scenic Fueled By Fine Wine race is popular with wine enthusiasts and was rated the 13th-best half marathon in the U.S. by Runner's World magazine.
