List: 2019 Wine Races and Runs

If your motivation for working out is to earn that glass of wine afterwards, wine runs might be your ideal form of exercise. These events come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can take a booze-filled walk, run a 5K ending in wine festival, or even marathon for the chance to win a magnum of wine.

Below is our list of top wine runs and walks, based on attendance and popularity. New to the list this year are Dionysus Dash runs, added by popular request. We’ve also noted differences in wine drinking formats for each race. We recommend considering these differences when making your decision. The list is sorted by date, but it can also be searched by name or location.
