Run the 5k course with the rest of the field, then enjoy a full pour at the finish line with your friends!

2) 0.0 K Race

Spectators are also encouraged to attend!  The 0k option gains you access to the race and includes a full pour and a souvenir wine glass.. and you don't even have to run!  


  • Is the race only for 21+? No, minors are welcome to participate, but they will get a soda instead of wine.

  • Are strollers allowed? Yes

  • Is walking allowed? Yes

  • Is the race dog friendly? Yes, but please make sure you dog is on a leash. 

  • Wine's cool, but I prefer Beer!  That's not a question... but you have a choice of wine or beer after the race! 

  • I still have questions, who do I contact?  If you have a question, someone else probably does too.  Email us at i[email protected] and we'll add it to this page

  • How do the waves work?  When you register you will select a start time.  You can start the race at any time in that window, and your time starts when you cross the start line.  To improve distancing, we are allowing a maximum of 40 people to join each time slot.
