Course Map

The Race Starts and Finishes at the Winery!  The route is mostly on grass and features a 2 loop course around the winery!  PLEASE DO NOT CROSS THE START/FINISH MAP ON LAP 1!  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!  

Can I Participate Virtually?

Absolutely!  We have been getting many inquiries about virtual participation and have integrated a virtual option into our regular registration.

Please feel free to register through the regular registration link above and you can either: 

1) Pick up packet during packet pickup or on the morning of the race, but run on your own (hint:  wine ticket is still good if you use this strategy)

2) Contact us at any time to switch to the Virtual Wine Run 5k and we'll ship your packet (no charge for shipping!)

Also, if you intend on running, but later change your mind and would like to do either of these options, that's ok too!  If you are definitely going to have us ship your packet and run virtually though, we do recommend signing up HERE

Charity

This Event Supports the Alzheimer's Foundation of America!

AFA was founded in 2002 by a caregiver whose mother lived with Alzheimer’s disease from 1980-1992. At that time, there was little information available and nowhere to turn for support.  His goal was to make sure that no other family living with Alzheimer’s disease would have to go through the journey alone.
