Join us on Saturday, March 20th, 2021 for an exciting new event that features the amazing hospitality and scenery of Cartecay Vineyards with a breathtaking backdrop of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and amazing wines produced by locally grown Cartecay Vineyards' grapes! In an effort to maintain social distancing we will have start times as early as 8am, and as late as 11:30am. Please Note: This is a very hilly course. It is very suitable for walkers and beginners, but does have some challenging spots. With registration options for all wine lovers and runners, this race is a sure thing for a great time and an incredible experience! This race is timed and scored by J3 Timing. Results will be posted at www.J3Timing.com.
