Description

Like Running or Walking?  Love Wine?  This race is for you! 

Join us on Saturday, June 12th, 2021 with wave start times available from 9-10am for an exciting event that features the amazing scenery, landscape, and great wines of Whispering Bluffs Winery!  Whether you are looking to run, walk or just enjoy the wine this race is a sure thing for a great time and an incredible experience!  This race is timed and scored by J3 Timing.  Results will be posted at www.J3Timing.com

Registration includes: A race t-shirt, souvenir wine glass, finisher medal and a glass of wine for runners 21 and older. Runners under 21 are welcome to participate and will receive a discounted registration during check out that includes a shirt, medal and bib (these participants will not receive a wine glass or a glass of wine).

5K Registration:  Run and/or walk the beautiful 5k course, score sweet race swag, and enjoy a pour of wine at the finish!  

0.5K Registration:  Loving the race swag, but not sure about doing the whole 5 km distance?  The 0.5 K is for you!  Score all the great race swag and the complimentary glass of wine, but skip the 3 mile run/walk!  And let's be honest... if you opt for the 0K instead, you're still getting your glass of wine :-)

Awards:  All participants receive a sweet finisher medal and a glass of wine, so there are no age group awards at this race, but we will have live results broken down into overall and age group format for you to view.

  • Open Start Line (race will not start as a group, your chip time starts when you start the race)
  • Wave Starts (start times extended from 9-10am)
  • Open Area - start line and race staging will be spread out to maximize social distancing
  • Results - posted online only, all participants receive finisher medals (no age group ceremony)

Course Map

The Race Starts and Finishes at the Winery!  The route is on grass and paved roads and features an amazing and scenic course!  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!  

Check back soon for an official course 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 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
