Important details: 

  • Competitive Runners, please start with the first group to be eligible for an age group award. 
  • If your event has wave start times, age group winners must start with the first wave to be eligible for a medal. 
  • There will be no age group ceremony.  Please look up your results at after finishing and if you placed top 1 in your category please visit the registration table to pick up your award.
  • Age Group medals will be available for pickup 1 hour after the start of the first wave - age group awards are only available the day of the event and will not be available for shipment once the event has concluded.



  • Is the race only for 21+? No, minors are welcome to participate and receive a discounted registration that includes a shirt, medal and bib. These participants will not receive a wine glass or a pour of wine but they will get a sweet cider at the finish line.
  • Are strollers allowed? You are welcome to use a stroller for this event but it is not recommended due to uneven ground on the course and children in strollers can participate for free and do not need to register.
  • Is walking allowed? Yes
  • Is the race dog friendly? No we're sorry - the USDA does not allow for dogs to be in the U-Pick Orchard which is heavily featured on this race course.  Dogs are allowed in the parking lot, but not on the course.
  • Do you do age group awards?  We do post age group categories so you can see how you placed, but everyone receives a finisher medal and a glass of wine in this event, not just the top 3!
  • I still have questions, who do I contact?  If you have a question, someone else probably does too.  Contact us using the contact button below and we'll add it to this page
