Venue wasn't great but it might have been better except that it was 100 degrees that day. The fairgrounds was in poor condition and the only option for parking was to pay the $15 fee. It was not well attended and everyone was so exhausted from the heat that there really wasn't much of an afterparty.

The event ran out of tank tops for sale and wine tumblers for sale. The run/walk was through a neighborhood, not a vineyard as the website leads you to believe. The after party was weak, no rock wall. I want to try this event again next year with the goal of getting some swag early before they sell out. I also heard that the people who purchased VIP were not given what they paid for and were not reimbursed but I cannot confirm this.

They made a cool trail and we got shirts, a medal, and a glass of wine at the end of the race! The glass we got to keep was really cute! Would totally recommend and do again!

From Our Editors

Mixing wine and running might sound like a recipe for spills. But The Ultimate Wine Run proves the two pursuits actually mesh nicely, if you know what you're doing. Runners don't actually sip while on the move, of course. Instead, they're rewarded with a glass at the finish line—that is, after they weave through a picturesque course in creative costumes such as a '50s sock hop guest.

The fun doesn't stop at the finish. A post-race party features live music, dancing, a mechanical bull, and a rock-climbing wall, plus food trucks and plenty of wine. A portion of the event's proceeds go toward Achieving My Dreams Foundation, a scholarship fund for promising college-bound students in need of financial assistance.
