Cave B Estate Winery is a beautiful place located in Quincy, Washington, next door to the famous Gorge Amphitheater overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. This trail run wanders through the Cave B Familigia Vineyards, through the sage dotted desert plateau and along the cliffs overlooking the Columbia River. It is an event for all levels: walker, joggers, runners - a fantastic training run, beautiful views and chance to get out and enjoy the majesty of the land and nature. The Caveman 5K Roar and Pour Trail Fun Run and Wine Tasting Event is now in its 7th year and was originally scheduled on Saturday, March 21, 2020 but because of Coronavirus 19 concerns we are postponing the race until Saturday, October 3, 2020. We will also be holding our annual Grape Picking & Stomping Harvest Festival the next day, Sunday, October 4th if you would like to make a full weekend of it (tickets for the Harvest Festival sold separately in late summer).There is no other run quite like it with runners dressed as Cavemen & Cavewomen running through the vineyards and along the gorgeous gorge cliff edge. It is a ROARING good time with many amazing photo opportunities along your run (or walk). The run ends outside of our tasting room where we will praise your success and hand you a wine glass and tickets to sample four different delicious Cave B wines. Enjoy a picnic on our grass with your pre-ordered lunch of a Turkey Pesto Sandwich Meal or fresh Veggie Wrap Meal from Dilly Deli with chips, fruit and water) while you taste the wines & listen to incredible live Steel Drum Music for some post-race fun (bring your own blanket)!
Even if the exercise part isn't your thing, we'd love to have you join us as a fan or a volunteer roaring and cheering for the participants and sampling our wonderful award winning wines.
For fun we have a team option. Get together a group of friends, co-workers, or family members and make the event your own. Four or more constitutes a team. Please note: If you are the team captain please register yourself as an individual, when it asks if you would like to form a team say, "yes", create a team name and then email or text your friends with the team name as they will need to register themselves. Our terrain is too uneven and rocky to not guarantee each individual person is signing a waiver and reading all forms, thus your teammates will need to register as an individual and when it says "do you want to join a team", they will say "yes". It will then ask for the team name that YOU created. They will type in that name and will be put on your team. You can decided if you want your team to be password protected or not. If you do just remember to tell your teammates your password AND your team name. Easy Peasy! At the race you and your team will find your race packet at the "Team Table".
Fun prizes will be awarded in a variety of categories for individuals and teams:
- First Finisher (no official clock), Men, Women & Kid run
- Best Caveman and/or Cavewoman costume
- Best team theme and spirit (four or more runners)
- Best human and dog costume combination
Every year we like to use our 5K run to support organizations in our community we care about. This winter we are opening our 3rd tasting room in the Tri-Cities and as a result 100% of all Corporate Sponsorships for this year's run go towards supporting the Tri-Cities Steel Band Association, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Richland, Washington. They promote world music in the Mid-Columbia region through education and music performance for middle school and high school age students. The organization currently sponsors four performance bands: two steel drum bands (OK2Botay and Bram Bratá) and two marimba bands ( ‘Baduku and ‘Bahuru), many of which will be performing for you before and after the run. If you would like to be a corporate sponsor please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
If you would like to support the band(s) individually as a runner with an extra monetary gift please do so during your online registration. As a supporter of all types of creative works, especially for our youth, we are also supporting the Wenatchee High School Student Run AppleLeaf Newspaper with their fundraising efforts to go to Nashville, TN for a national journalism convention this spring. The Appleleaf student editors and reporters will be manning the registration tables, water stations and pre-ordered lunch table at this year's run. If you would like to support them in their fundraising efforts please do so during your online registration. Thank you for supporting youth in our communities.
