Description

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

Join us on Saturday, February 15, 2024 at 9:00am MST for an exciting annual event that features Sonoita Vineyards!  The oldest commercial vineyard and winery in Arizona, Sonoita Vineyards was started in 1974, opened in 1983 and now includes over 30 acres of vines. Aided by the unique growing conditions of the Sonoita Appellation (AVA – American Viticultural Area), the winery consistently creates award winning wines, including a Cabernet Sauvignon chosen by national wine critics to serve at a Presidential Inauguration Gala. Perched at an elevation of 5,000 feet among rolling grasslands, the vineyard is surrounded on three sides by soaring mountain ranges. With extra swag options for all wine lovers, walkers and runners, this race is a sure thing for a great time!  This race is timed and scored by J3 Timing.  Results will be posted at www.J3Timing.com.

Course Map

The race starts and finishes at the winery runs through the vineyard.  The course is suitable for both runners and walkers, but does have some areas with uneven footing and a few challenging inclines.  It is a 2 lap route, so if you complete your first lap and decide to call it a day, just let our timer know that you are switching to the 1.5 mile division!

  • 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 as many walkers as we do runners (if not more!)
  • Is the race dog friendly?  Dogs are allowed but they must be on a leash at all times and you are expected to pick up after them.
  • I still have questions, who do I contact?  If you have a question, someone else probably does too.  Email us using the "questions" button on this page, we would love to hear from you!  

Packet Pickup

Packet Pick-up will be on Race day morning ONLY beginning an hour before the race starts.

 

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 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 virtual wine run race.
