Race Preview: 2019 Whine on the Vine (Hillsboro)

Are you ready for Whine on the Vine? This 5 mile OCR adventure run is sure to hold some surprises and challenges, as it is an X-Dog Event. The event promises mimosas, a slip-n-slide, and “breathtaking” views. I have a feeling you will be gasping for breath as you take in the views from this vineyard race. Held at 6-Peaks Vineyard (formerly J Albin Winery,) Whine on the Vine includes rows of grapes, hills – one in particular, obstacles – both natural and man-made, trail running (or maybe just traversing,) and a post-race picnic. X-Dog states that “some portions of the trail you can run, others you can’t, and band aids and blood might just happen.” Oh yea, this is going to be a good one!

After the race enjoy a mimosa and food. There will be awards for age group and top finishers. The winery will be open for tasting (for a fee) and you can also enjoy the grounds and the scenery.

This crazy event helps support Newberg High School Athletics while challenging those of us who choose to take this on.

I’m up for a challenge that includes obstacles and trails. It sounds like the perfect mix of fun and torture! Come join me and let’s see how this adventure will unfold. I have a feeling you’d better BYOBand-aids! 😉
