The Vine Wine’d
10K or 5K Trail Race – 1 Mile Run/Walk – Post Race Cookout
October 7th, 2017
Presented in Conjunction with
Join us for the most unique race of the season, a scenic 10K, 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.
2017 marks the fifth 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 10K and 5K are timed races on a challenging trail course. The 1 mile is not timed and is set on an easier course.
- 10K/5K trail (timed) or 1 mile (untimed) course
- Custom Vine Wine’d 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.
