Description

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

Join us on Sunday, December 8, 2024 at 8:00am and 9:15am (you will select your start time during registration) for an exciting Christmas themed event that features the scenic views of Summer Crush Vineyard & Winery. Summer Crush is a family owned sun & fun boutique winery creation that is the result of the blending of owner/vintner Gary Roberts' love of history and surfing, with native muscadine and fruit wines. Florida is truly a place with a Crush on Summer and Summer Crush blends the rich history of muscadine wine with the tropical Florida lifestyle to create a memorable winery experience like no other. 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.

Please be aware that another event will start at 11:30am so you will need to buy a ticket to the concert if you are staying at the venue past 11am
