How are we guaranteeing a safe and socially distanced event?

We have been testing social distancing at several events so far and have had great success by implementing:

  • Contactless Packet Pickup

  • Extended Packet Pickup Hours (and group pickup options)

  • Wave Starts or Time trial starts from 9am-10am (race will not start as a group, your chip time starts when you start the race)

  • Open Area - start line and race staging will be spread out to maximize social distancing

  • Results - posted online only, all participants receive finisher medals (no age group ceremony)

  • Extended Post Race Party - wine tickets are good from Friday until the following weekend, so you can visit the winery before or after the event

  • Masks Recommended:  Announcer will encourage participants to wear masks and follow current CDC social distancing guidelines

  • Hand Sanitzer Stations:  Additional Hand Sanitizer stations at registration and restrooms

  • FREE SHIPPING to participants if they decide to switch to virtual rather than in person

  • 100% Refund Guarantee!  If situations change, we are offering refunds to anyone who decides not to attend (please request refund by 10/1/20)


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

  • Is walking allowed? Yes, walkers are allowed and encouraged to participate!

  • Are strollers allowed? Yes, but please note most of the course is grass and there are some rough patches on the course

  • When is packet pickup?  We will hold packet pickup from 4-7pm on Friday the day before the race.  If you can't make packet pickup that's okay you can pickup your packets the morning of the race.

  • If I refer 20 people do I really get 10 bottles of wine and $25 back of my registration? Yes! We have the best runner referral program!!

  • 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 if we get enough requests we will look into adding a beer option!

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