on to the race. There are currently less than 200 spots available until the max of 1200 is reached. Meaning SIGN UP NOW (see the end of this post for a little money saving information). From the website:
Entrants will be treated to a unique departure from a typical running course, a large portion of the event will follow unpaved vineyard trails as they wind through rows of grapes and under branches of Oregon’s prized hazelnut trees.
Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Be prepared to love the course and the views, but beware that it isn’t all a “grape-walk”. I was actually talking to someone at the Lincoln City Half Marathon earlier this month and we got to talking races. When I mentioned I was running in a few wine-themed events, one of which being the Fueled by Fine Wine, he said how beautiful it was, but that it was TOUGH! No PR’s are to be expected as runners are greeted with the geographical features that wineries are known for – hills.
Now we can get to the after-party.
As you would expect, the after-race party will offer samplings (and bottles for sale as well) from some the best local wineries, Oregon’s best offerings, in the company of winemakers and fellow wine connoisseurs. Additional tickets will be available online for your guests in a month or so at the cost of $20.In addition to the party, runners will receive swag bags, an etched pinot noir glass, tech shirts and medal. Head over to their Facebook page and peruse through the photos to get an even better idea of the awesomeness that awaits.
