Like Running or Walking? Love Wine? This race is for you!
Join us on Saturday, December 16th, 2023 for an exciting Christmas themed event that features the scenic views of Keel and Curley Winery! Through hard work on the farm they produce honest, healthy, sustainable, ground to glass products served in a comfortable, family environment. 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.
How It Works:
1) When registering, create a Team Name for your group. Create a password (and write it down!)
2) Tell all your friends to sign up for the race! (be sure to give them your team name and password)
3) If you have a team of 10 the team leader will receive 1 bottle of wine at the specified winery.
4) If you have a team of 20 the team leader will receive a total of 5 bottles of wine at the specific winery.
GPS Address for the parking lot is 3115 N Forbes Rd, Plant City, FL
The walk from the parking lot to the winery will be about 200 meters. There is no gear check available at the start/finish line, so please arrive early if you are picking up your race packet on race day.
After the Race: Be sure to stick around and enjoy the wines, farm, and amazing food options available at Keel Farms!
The Race Starts and Finishes at the Winery and is a scenic 2 loop tour of the farm! The route is a mix of grass and paved and has several turns to run through the blueberries and farm. 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!
The Mission of Florida Giant Dog Rescue is To Rescue, Re-Home, and Reduce the number of Gentle Giant Dogs in need with Commitment and Compassion, and Community Engagement.

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? Yes, but please make sure your dog is on a leash. Dogs are not allowed indoors at the winery or restaurant after the event

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 Running on Wine Virtual Christmas Races 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 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 Running on Wine Virtual Christmas Races.
