Wild Vine Trail Race

The grapes have been pressed and the wine has been bottled, but there’s one more step before jumping into the Uncorked Wine Tasting. Lace up your running shoes and join us for the Wild Vine 5k & Half Marathon. The 5k provides a quick and fun race for the casual runner, while the half marathon distance provides a great event for runners in training. This event is a part of the Half Marathon Series presented by La Sportiva.
