Secondly – we are so excited to announce the location of this year’s Wine Run – WESTPORT VINEYARDS. This beautiful waterside vineyard is a perfect location for running amongst the vines – see parts of the vineyard that are normally closed to visitors. This non-competitive 3 mi trail run is followed by wine tastings, music and dinner in the Vineyard. The event takes place this year on Saturday, May 18th starting at 4p.
But before we get there, our next event is the Hangover Classic 5 miler. This old-school race is in its 34th running and it is the best way to kick off the New Year. On January 1, run around Bristol Harbor, historic Coggeshall Farm and through stunning Colt State Park. The race is sure to invigorate your sense of purpose and self-accomplishment on the first day of 2019! After the race, check out our local brewery partner, Canned Heat. Not only are they providing our awesome trophies, but they will be giving away a free “gift” to all our participants at the post race party – ;).
Finally – we are constantly striving to get better and learn from you, our participants – what we have done right and where we can improve. Please take our quick Year End Survey to help us as we plan our 2019 events.
A reminder – ALL of our race entries increase on 12/31. Sign up soon and save some $$$$!
As always, thank you for joining us and we hope to see you on the starting line soon.
