On Friday night we'll kick off the weekend with a Pasta Party at The Drake Devonshire! Runners can purchase dinner sans wine for $30+HST or with County wine pairings for $47.50+HST.
On Saturday, May 23rd runners meet at The Old Third Winery (251 Closson Road, Wellington) and run along Closson Road past Closson Chase Winery,Broken Stone Winery, Lacey Estate Winery, The Grange of Prince Edward Estate Winery, Hinterland Winery, turning left onto Benway Road passing Trail Estate Winery , then past the Karlo Estates Winery water station, along to Greer Road. Heading west along Greer Road runners will cross Highway 33 and run to the end of Greer Road around the antique tractor at Rosehall Run Winery and finish at Norman Hardie Winery (1152 Greer Road, Wellington).
Runners will come to The Old Third Winery between 8am and 8:45am to register. Note that there is a Sandbanks Vacations Shuttle Bus going from Norman Hardie Winery to The Old Third from 7:30am to 8:30am for those wishing to have their cars at the finish line. At 9am sharp, Old Third Winery winemaker Bruno Francois will fire off his bird banger to initiate the start of the run. There will be four H20 hydration stations strategically placed along the run (at Closson Chase Winery, The Grange of PEC Winery, Benway & Greer Rd and Hwy 33 & Greer Road). Our lead vehicle is generously sponsored by The County Cider Company and our follow vehicle is driven my MacKinnon Brothers Brewing.
Included with your $100.00 registration fee is a runners kit with a collectors edition Terroir Run t-shirt, a Quirky Carrot granola bar, a package of Pluck Teas PEC Lavender Tea, a weeks pass at Energia Athletics, a bottle of Kiki Maple Sweet Water and a voucher for a wood-fire pizza lunch that includes wine, beer and cider.
The Terroir Run is pleased to donate $5 from each registration to Slow Food The County towards the great work that they do supporting Good, Clean and Fair Food. New for 2015, in memory of Richard Karlo of Karlo Estates Winery (who passed away in 2014), we are donating $5 from each registration to the Quinte Humane Society (QHS). Richard was a great supporter of the run, a wonderful winemaker, man and a huge animal lover. We'll run for Richard this year and we encourage you to bring your four legged friends to join in the fun!
*Please note – this run will take place rain or shine. There are washroom facilities at Norman Hardie Winery however, there are no shower facilities for post race. There are no refunds for registration after April 24, 2015.
Many thanks to our awesome sponsors!
