The grassy course is in terrific running condition with gentle rolling hills and above all, spectacular views and lots and lots of photo opportunities! The total course distance will be 5K (3.1 miles) with plenty of places to pause for a break or a picture! Each ticket purchase will include a glass of wine on the day of the event.
