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

Join us on Saturday, July 20, 2024 starting at 4:30pm and 5:30pm (you will select your start time during registration) for an exciting annual event that features the amazing scenery and landscape of Olathea Creek Vineyard & Winery! The name “Olathea Creek Vineyard & Winery” comes from the history of the land. The vineyard was once the campsite for the Sauk and Fox tribes. The term "olethe" in Fox means beautiful. Beautiful is the perfect adjective to describe the property. The property features a picturesque creek and provides a quiet, country setting along the majestic Mississippi River. So, 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

This race will sell out at 300 participants so make sure to sign up early!  Parking is limited at the winery, so please car pool if possible!

Course Map

Race Course:  There will be vines, and there will be wines!  Get ready for an awesome and scenic tour of the vineyards!  If you're looking for a personal best time, this is not the course for you!  Though,  if you're looking for a personal best wine this course is a guaranteed winner!  The course is mostly grass with some uneven areas and includes several turns.  The course is 2.5K ~1.55M, so 2 laps are needed in order to complete the full distance.

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 and log into your account.

2). Click on "Manage Registration" next to this race.
