I spent my evening at a beautiful local vineyard working an end of summer trail run.
Note: this race is always in August and always HOT – even with it being in the evening! Hydrate!
I absolutely LOVE this race! It’s easy to get to, parking is free and the post race party is one of the best around.
The course takes you around the vineyard on trail and grass and then out to the main road. It’s an out and back course so you end coming through the vineyard on the grass and trail.
And now – the fun part!
Runners are given access to Boordy and registration includes a complimentary wine tasting! As you enter the party, you receive your wine glass and then get to enjoy some delicious wine complements – cheese, bread/crackers, grapes and veggies. Water and soda is available for the runners as well.
There’s is usually a caterer on site with food for sale however this year, Charm City Pops was on site selling homemade popsicles! I tried the Pineapple Crush and Chocolate with Sea Salt — so good! Runners were certainly enjoying the frozen treats after their run.
It’s a great way to wrap up your summer racing and transition into the cooler running months ahead!
