Some people participate in marathons and similar sporting events for personal fitness goals, others join them for the social aspect as is the case with the Wicked Wine Run. Or simply for the alcohol. Although wine and running may not seem to go hand-in-hand for many, those who partake in the Wicked Wine Run beg to differ.
Taking place in unique venues including vineyards and wineries, the theme is strongly upheld throughout the Wicked Wine Run. Not only are small cups of wine handed out in place of water throughout the 5k course, people are treated to the beautiful sight of manicured nature as they run, jog or even walk.
Taking place in the evening, the Wicked Wine Run often ends in a party with a live band and food trucks to complement the flowing drinks. The Wicked Wine Run is a niche event that will nevertheless appeal to many.
