Race Spectators and Post Race Activity

For friends and family members not participating in the 5K/10K, you are invited to enjoy the Yonah Mountain Vineyards campus. Food for purchase options will be available in addition to a fully open Winery Tasting Room. Following the race, we invite all racers to stay and enjoy a glass of wine with your competitors.

Race Day Parking

Parking is free on our campus, however because of the high volume of cars we will be directing cars to our event parking lot. This is a short distance from the check-in so please arrive early.
