Elktoberfest Wine & Beer Run 5K
September 24, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Love Wine or Beer? Like Walking or Running? This race is for you!
Join us for our 1st annual Elktoberfest Wine & Beer Run 5K on Saturday, September 24th, 2022 for an exciting event that features the scenic views of Elkhart Lake, and the great Wine produced by locally owned by Vintage Elkhart Winery and craft beer produced by Switchgear Brewing Company. With registration options for all wine and beer lovers and runners, this race is a sure thing for a great time!
All participants will receive a race t-shirt, race bib, drink ticket for a pour of 5 oz wine (or a glass of craft beer), a souvenir wine glass, and a finisher medal!!! *Our race t-shirt is purple this year; however, with COVID supplier issues it could come in black or another possible color depending on vendor supply availability*
This is an out-and-back 5k run/walk. Runners and walkers will all start together at the intersection of S. Lake St. and Square St. just south of the Farmer’s Market. Runners will then run to the golf course where they will continue straight on Golf Course Road. Shortly after 1 mile the runners will turn around and then come back towards the same way that they went out except for runners/walkers will turn right on Osthoff Ave and finish going towards the winery. We will have water and light refreshments at the finish line for all runners and walkers and of course Wine and Beer!
Packet Pickup for runners will be held on the morning of the race from 8:00-9:00 am for the 9:00 am start time. We will provide you with a race bib and safety pins. The race bib has a drink ticket at the bottom that you will tear off to redeem for a pour of wine or pour of craft beer. When you turn in your tear-off drink ticket that is when you receive your souvenir wine glass.
The packet pickup process is quick and easy. We will have 5-15 volunteers ready to pass out your shirt and race bib. All we need is your name and we will look you up on our Runsignup App and get you your packet. The process goes quickly and there shouldn’t be any lines.
