About Us

All About The Wine

The Wine Run 5k started in our home town in rural Northwest Illinois. After our first race sold out 2 months early and included participants from several states we expanded the series that now features over 50 amazing destination wineries and vineyards throughout the Midwest! Each Wine Run 5k race features a 5k Run/Walk and a 0k for those who want to participate but would rather just go straight for the wine! Walkers are encouraged to participate and at several of our events walkers outnumber the runners! Participants receive a Wine Run T-Shirt, Custom Race Bib, Souvenir Wine Glass, Finisher Medal, and a pour of wine at the finish line!

Awesome Race Swag!

The fun really begins to flow at the Post Race Party where runners enjoy music, fun, and of course sample some of the best wines in the country (yeah Napa… you heard that right!)  All of our events benefit a local charity, so all donations and referral donations stay in the community to support the incredible organizations that help and co-promote that event.  Don’t miss out on your Wine Run experience. Where will you run for wine?
