Description

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

Join us on Saturday, August 3, 2024 at 9:00am for an exciting new event that features the amazing scenery and landscape of Big Cork Vineyards!  Their name might be BIG, but what makes them so special is something small. Big Cork’s idyllic, microclimate and fertile soil yields smaller grapes with more concentrated flavors, resulting in (you guessed it) BIG and intensely flavorful wines.. 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 www.J3Timing.com

Registration Includes:

  • T-shirt:  Super Soft Ring Spun Cotton t-shirt included! 
  • Wine Glass: Shatterproof, Collapsible, and Portable!
  • Finisher Medal: Doubles as a wine coaster!
  • Race Bib: Chip timed 5k run/walk
  • Results Posted Online
  • ...and of course, a pour of wine!

But hunger doesn't affect everyone equally - some groups face like children, seniors, and Black, Indigenous, and other people of color face hunger at much higher rates. Hunger also most often affects our neighbors who live in poverty. Please consider make a donation to help fight hunger. For more information click here!


St. Jude Children's Hospital - The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. For more information click here!

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.
