Calling racers and couch potatoes alike! The semi-annual 1K Wine & Beer Walk is around the corner so you better start training! Pass the start line and sip your way along the race course, stopping at “Wine” and “Beer” hydration stations along the course. Sample 20+ wines or 20+ beers we’ll be pouring for your racing pleasure, and end at a giant dance party! Wine and Beer both are being served in EVERY room.

New this year: due to popular requests, we are combining the 1K Wine and Beer Walk together so folks can attend in groups and choose either wine or beer tasting option. more details here.  Also, event takes place on Saturday ONLY…no Sunday race will take place.
