  • Are strollers allowed? You are welcome to use a stroller for this event but it is not recommended due to uneven ground on the course and children in strollers can participate for free and do not need to register.
  • Is walking allowed? Yes absolutely!  We have many walkers, joggers, and run/walkers at this event!
  • Is the race dog friendly? Dogs are allowed to run with their owners, but the owner must immediately pick up after their dog.  Animals are not allowed in the buildings and must be leashed and under the direct supervision of their owners at all times.
  • I still have questions, who do I contact?  If you have a question, someone else probably does too.  Use the contact form on this page, we'd love to hear from you!

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 Wine Run Virtual Turkey Trot Races and we'll ship your packet (NEW for 2023: There will be a $10.00 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 runsignup.com/profile 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 Wine Run Virtual Turkey Trot Races.
