Runners on the Winter's Hill Vineyard portion of a past Fueled by Fine Wine - but the Winter's Hill Vineyard Run is capped at only 50 participants!

This race is capped at only 50 participants - so if you love running, love wine, and love running races that with amazing views - don't wait! This event will raise funds for the Yamhelas Westsider Trail, a rails-to-trails route that will connect communities in Yamhill County. And, no doubt, be awesome to run on. The Winter's Hill Vineyard Run is scheduled for Sunday, August 10, 2014 at Winter's Hill Vineyard in Dayton, Ore. Registration is $45 and includes a tech shirt, a flight of Winter's Hill wines, a half-off pass for a friend's flight, and lunch (or maybe we'll call it brunch) for Mended Fence Farms Food Cart, which will be on-site at the race.

Similar to the Stoller Vineyards 5k in the spring, the course is a mix of trails that wind through the vines, gravel roads, and … you know it’s coming … hills. We love hills! Right? The Winter’s Hill Vineyard was on the course for the 2012 Fueled by Fine Wine, which has built up a well-earned reputation as a beautiful, challenging-but-worth-it race. Think of this race as a three-mile version to get you geared up for FBFW.

Well, we love wine, at least, and with only 50 slots, this race will probably fill up. As an added bonus, it will probably fill up with awesome people who love running and wine, so you’ll be in good company!

I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
