Have your wine and drink it too at the Grapest 5km Run.
It’s a Friday night. You’re about to clock off at work when you’re friends invite you out for a well deserved COB vino. With that in mind, you’ve also skipped the gym three times this week. You’re now faced with the ultimate dilemma. To un-wined and say goodbye to that bikini body or to sweat it out and acknowledge your impending FOMO that you’re not sipping on god’s liquid. Well fret no more, as the Grapest 5km run are proposing a fun run event with a cork-stopping twist.
Those aged 18 years and over are invited to take part in either a 5km or 10km fun run around Australia’s most iconic wine regions. After you’ve walked, ran, skipped and danced the length of the track, enjoy the best kind of cool down with a 1km wine tasting walk through the vineyards where you’ll sample wines from four wine stations.
The fun doesn’t stop there, as you’re invited to stay and enjoy some hip gyrating-ly good live entertainment, delicious food vans, cellar door packages and more wine from a range of award winning vineyards.
If running really isn’t your thing, there will also be a 1K wine tasting walk only.
The first fun run will be kicking off in Bendigo on 11th February, with the team travelling to Shoalhaven on 4th March. It’s from there that the event will move to the iconic Hunter Valley on 6th May. Those hailing from areas surrounding Brisbane, Margaret River, Langhore Creek and Canberra fear not, Grapest 4K will hit you guys in the latter half of the year.
