We are thrilled to announce the date of the New Years Cheers, 5k, 3 Hour, and 6 hour will be Jan. 29, 2022. The 6 hour race will begin at 7 am, the 3 hour race at 8 am, and the 5 k will start at 9 am.
The Course: is a loop course, including a mix of grass fields, jeep roads, single track, and rock scrambles. The course is 95% runnable with a very brief section including technical rocks. The route will wind thru the winery’s land, vineyards both abandoned and active, and navigate thru a hand cleared private trail only open for our events use. It is seemingly “flat” but at 4000 feet elevation those small climbs will begin to add up for the 3 & 6 hour course runners.
Aid Stations: There will be a location to leave your bag for self aid at the start/finish location, as well as some basics provided at the 1 mile loop section. It is important to stay moving and not drink too much wine while running! Our volunteers will be there at the 1 mile loop start/ finish to help you if needed.
Time Rules: Only complete loops count, so pace yourself accordingly, if you have 15 minutes to the finish time of your race, only the loop you complete will count, so choose your final lap accordingly.
Bonus: All racers get a free wine or tea tasting included with race entry.
Packet Pickup: Friday Jan. 22nd 4:30 – 6 pm, at the Volcano Winery, or beginning at 6 am race morning. Please wear a mask, and minimize extra people with you while checking in with Alyx.
