Grapest 5K Run 2019

Cool Sh*t, Drink, Events / April 29, 2019

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 your friends invite you out for a well deserved 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 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 enjoy 8 wine tastings.

The fun doesn’t stop there, as you’re invited to stay and enjoy three hours of toe-tapping 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 waddle’ where you can enjoy all the wine tastings, minus the fun run.

The next fun run is kicking off in Queensland on 18th May, with the team travelling to the Hunter Valley on 1st June. Those hailing from Canberra, Geelong, WA and Tasmania fear not, the Grapest 5km Run will hit you guys in the latter half of the year.
