This Event Has Been Changed to A Virtual 5k

Due to stay at home restrictions and health mandates and recommendations, this race will not be hosted live.  We are switching to a virtual 5k race (see info below) which we hope you'll join us at, but also understand if you would like to request a refund.  Please complete the survey options below to indicate which direction you would like to proceed, and we hope to see you in 2021!  

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results.

The Virtual Wine Run is one of the most popular Virtual Events in the Country Right Now and has over 10,000 participants!  If you'd like to join the movement select this option!

We will ship you your race shirt, bib, finisher medal, and wine glass and you will also receive a link with instructions to key in your 5k results. 

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.  In the meantime, KEEP ON RUNNING!
