The Vine Wine’d
5K Trail Race – 1 Mile Run/Walk – Post Race Cookout
October 3rd, 2015
Join us for the most unique race of the season, a scenic 5K or 1 mile tour of our premium wine grape vineyards and surrounding farm. Wine’ding through vineyards, meadow, and numerous forested ecosystems, the network of trails was created by our vineyard manager to showcase the diverse beauty of the property.
2015 marks the third year of this annual event. Fenn Valley continues to plant new acres of vineyard, allowing return participants the opportunity to witness the progression of vineyards and wine literally from the ground up. As October is the heart of wine grape harvest, the sights, smells, and taste of harvest will envelop you as you wine’d your way through one of our two courses. The 5K is a timed race on a challenging sanctioned trail course, and the 1 mile is not timed and is set on an easier course.
- USATF Sanctioned 5K trail (timed) or 1 mile (untimed) course
- Technical moisture wicking t-shirt
- Fenn Valley wine glass
- Complimentary glass of wine or sparkling grape juice
- Post-race vineyard party including live music
Wine tasting and entertainment will be waiting for you when you get back to the winery and for non-participants during the race. Feel free to bring your own blankets and chairs to settle in! Registration also includes an option to attend a picnic style cookout in the vineyards immediately following the race. Hot grills, fresh salad, and a glass of Michigan wine… what could be better?
Back by Popular Demand – Grape Stomp Contest! The Vine Wine’d features a contest to see who can can crush the most grapes with their feet. Teams will have 5 minutes to smash as many grapes as possible in specially designed stomping boxes. So gather your team and join the fun. Prizes will be awarded to the top four teams.
