Course Map

5K Course:

The Course Starts and Finishes at the Winery!  This is a 2 loop course.

There is some uneven ground and small hills at some points in the course, but this route is very suitable for both walkers and runners.

1 Mile Course: 1 milers start and finish with the 5k, but go straight at the water stop rather than turning for a beautiful loop around the outside of the orchards.

  • Age Group pins will be available for pickup 1 hour after the start of the first wave - age group awards are only available the day of the event and will not be available for shipment once the event has concluded.


  • Is the race only for 21+? No, minors are welcome to participate and receive a discounted registration that includes a shirt, medal and bib. These participants will not receive a wine glass or a pour of wine but they will get a sweet cider at the finish line.
  • Are strollers allowed? You are welcome to use a stroller.  The ground is uneven so a jogging stroller with big wheels is recommended.  Children in strollers can participate for free and do not need to register.
  • Is walking allowed? Yes

  • Do you do age group awards?  We do post age group categories so you can see how you placed, but everyone receives a finisher medal and a glass of wine in this event, not just the top 3!

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 (There will be a shipping and handling charge for this option)

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 you follow the instructions below:

1). Go to and log into your account.

2). Click on "Manage Registration" next to this race.

3). On the next page click on transfer to another race and choose the virtual wine run race.
