Please read the below information carefully. Thank You!
Race Date: June 1st at 9am
Location: Sand Castle Winery, 755 River Road, Erwinna, PA 18920
Packet Pick Up Info: Bibs and shirts may be picked up race morning between 7-8:40am at Sand Castle Winery.
We will have a Pre-Race Day Packet Pick Up at the Bucks County Running Store in Doylestown from 10am-1pm. Address is 25 West State Street, Doylestown. We strongly encourage runners to pick up at this time if possible. You may pick up for others.
Parking: PLEASE DO NOT PLAN TO PARK AT VINEYARD UNLESS SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE AND YOU HAVE A PARKING PASS. FOR THE MOST PART, ALL RUNNERS SHOULD BE PARKING AT TINICUM PARK ON RACE DAY (SEE BELOW).
Due to the extremely limited space for parking at the Vineyard…There will be a designated parking area 1.1 miles away from the vineyard at Tinicum Park, located at 963 River Road, Upper Black Eddy, PA 18972. We will have a shuttle service taking you from the designated parking area to the front door of the Winery. You may also choose to walk to or from the vineyard using the beautiful path alongside the brook (this path connects the park and winery). Shuttle service will be continuous to and from the vineyard between 7:45am and 12:45 pm. We will have an attendant at the parking area instructing participants to the shuttle and path. It is recommended that you arrive at the parking area before 8:20am to assure enough time to get situated at the Winery.
Bag Check: We will have a bag check area near Race Day Packet Pick Up area- so you may stow your belongings during the run.
Food: There will be water and bananas available for the runners after completing the 5K. There will also be a great food vendor providing brunch/lunch type items for a nominal fee.
Wine: After completing the 5K, each runner will receive a Run the Vineyard Wine Glass with a wine ticket to be used for your glass of wine.
Live Music: We will have Greg Jones, an amazing “one man show” performing outside until about 12:30.
Awards: We will have an awards presentation at about 10am at the location of Greg Jones. Awards are given out to the top 3 overall runners (men and women) and top 3 in age categories (men and women).
Timing and Results: This event is chip timed with a chip start and finish. Each bib will have your information programed on 2 chips located on the back of the bib. Therefore your “chip time” will be calculated from the moment you cross the start line. However, please note that for awards, we use the “gun time” results for overall winners. So, if you are contending for an award, we suggest you start near the front of the pack. The timing company suggests that bibs are worn on the front of outer layer of clothing for best “read results.”
Results will be available within minutes on-line at our website www.GoodDayforaRun.com.
Photos: We will have a professional photographer on site taking pictures that will be available for purchase. Once the photo link is complete, we will email that link to runners and also have located on our web site.
Course: The course is entirely on dirt and crush stone trails. There will be a variety of beautiful views to see while running.
Spectators: We love when Family and Friends hang out to cheer you on and show their support. If they have an interest in wine tasting or having a glass of wine, they would just be asked to pay the normal fees charged by the Vineyard.
Purchases: You are encouraged to stay and relax as long as you would like. Bottles and cases will be available for purchase by the vineyard.
