Course Map

The race Starts and Finishes at the winery!  This course has some challenging inclines and declines, but the epic views may take your breath away more than the challenging inclines.  Walkers and beginners are welcome to attend the event, but please be aware that this course includes several very significant hills.  This is a 2 loop course, so you will have the option to call it a day after 1.5 miles and head over to the post race party if the hills get you.  **Please tell our timer if you cross the finish lap and only complete 1 loop**  Please note:  weather or course conditions may result in a change to the race course.

    • 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 many walkers, joggers, and run/walkers at this event!
    • Is the race dog friendly? Yes, but please make sure to keep your dog on a leash at all times and dogs are not allowed inside the winery building.
    • I still have questions, who do I contact?  If you have a question, someone else probably does too. Use the contact form on this page, we'd love to hear from you!

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.
