The Race Starts and Finishes at the Winery! This course has some challenging inclines and declines, but the epic views may take your breath away more than the challenging inclines. Walkers and beginners are welcome to attend the event, but please be aware that this course includes several very significant hills. This is a 2 loop course, so you will have the option to call it a day after 1.5 miles and head over to the post race party if the hills get you. **Please tell our timer if you cross the finish lap and only complete 1 loop** Please note: weather or course conditions may result in a change to the race course.
Absolutely! We have been getting many inquiries about virtual participation and have integrated a virtual option into our regular registration.
