Course Information

 

Starting at the winery and proceeding through the vineyard, 10k runners will run out and back along the scenic Old Church Road, turn into the Viniterra development and onto the Rees Jones designed golf course before finishing back at the winery where an exquisite wine and chocolate after party awaits. 5k runners make the quick turn into the Viniterra development, onto the golf course and back to the winery. This is a very scenic run with some hills to provide just the right amount of a challenge, and there is a mix of paved and dirt surfaces.

Awards

 

The race will be  timed using Chronotrak B-tag timing technology. Overall winners will be determined by the gun time, and age group results will be determined by the net time as recorded by the B-Tag attached to your bib. The top three overall male and female finishers will be removed from their respective age group so you will not win both the age group and open categories.

 

Top Male and Female Overall: Trophy, New Kent Winery Gift Bag, Fleet Feet Sports Gift Certificate

 

Top 3 in each age group: Award certificate, Fleet Feet Sports Gift Certificate

 

Overall finishers will be awarded their medals at a medal ceremony during the after party. Age group awards will be available for pick up at the after party.

 

After Party

 

The after party will feature lots of music and refreshments including 3 wine tastings from the exquisite selection offered by New Kent Winery. We will also have selection of Belgian truffles, dipping chocolate and items for dipping as well as hot chocolate.

 

Runners will also be able to purchase food from River City Wood Fire Pizza and Monique's Crepes.
