Wine Run

Lone Goat Vineyard

Event Information

Wine Run will give you the opportunity to mix all your pleasures - running/walking, wine, food and live entertainment.

You will have the option of the 5km or 10km run or walk.  There will be a wine tasting approximately every kilometer provided by Lone Goat Vineyard and food around the route. Tasting of the wine during the run is optional, you can have a water or electrolyte drink if you prefer. This is a non-competitive event but if you want to win and race your mate, then that’s up to you. Dress up and have some fun. We will have spot prizes and costume prizes throughout the night. We do have a time limit on the run/walk - this is 2 hours 30 minutes - so we’re giving those walkers plenty of time to walk and sample the wines and water throughout the vineyard.

There will be food stalls, a bar, entertainment and buses to get you to and from the Vineyard.
