Course Map

This is a 2 lap cross country style course. The route does include some challenging inclines, but it is very suitable for both walkers and runners.  The start/finish line is right at the winery, so if you decide to upgrade to the 2.5k by only doing 1 lap, that's fine too!  Click Here for Interactive Map

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 Haunted Wine Run Virtual Race and we'll ship your packet (NEW for 2023: There will be a $10.00 shipping and handling charge per person)

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.
