Course Map

The Race Starts and Finishes at the Winery and is a scenic 2 loop tour of the farm!  The route is a mix of grass and paved and has several turns to run through the blueberries and farm.  This is not the optimal course for a PR, but it is a great option if you're looking for the most fun you've had at a 5k!  Runners and Walkers are welcomed to participate!
