Parking will be $5 cash per car. Please try to have the correct amount of money to speed up the parking process. We recommend car-pooling wherever possible to make sure everyone has space to park!
Please try to arrive at least 60 minutes before the run starts! This will give you enough time to park your car, register, get
your bearings and pick your spot in front of the band area. There is an unmanned bag drop area on site to store your belongings until you come back in
from the course. Leave valuables at home or in the car. We accept no responsibility for lost or damaged items.
REMEMBER: EVERYONE ALWAYS ARRIVES AT THE SAME TIME, AND LAST MINUTE! SO NOT ALLOWING YOURSELF ENOUGH TIME COULD RESULT IN LINING UP.. We
will do our best to minimize any line-ups, please be patient and think of the wine.
If you have purchased a bus ticket please see below your departure places and times. The bus will not and cannot wait for late comers!
When you arrive at the vineyard you will be given a YELLOW wristband. PLEASE ensure you keep this on throughout the event, so that you
can take the bus home! All buses will depart on time.
At registration you will be given a coloured wristband relevant to your category. Please do not remove this for the duration of the event.
People at the event will be checked for wristbands, so to save embarrassment, please keep them on!
RACE BRIEF- APPROX 12.45pm
START TIME- APROX 1.00PM
We ask that the 10km participants are at the front, they will get a 5 minute head start to help avoid congestion on the course. The 5k
participants and the 'Wine Waddle' participants will start after that! Once the runners taken off, the 'Wine Waddlers' will wait for staff
directions to provide them with their custom wine cup, lanyard and tasting card to commence wine tasting, mmmm!
WINE TASTING STATIONS
The tasting stations will NOT be open for the whole of the Event. Please try and be at the first tasting station by 2.30pm,
you won't want to miss out on the Band! Each participant is given 8 wine tasting tokens, hand ONE over to receive ONE
tasting! Use all 8 at one station if you like, but once they're gone, they're gone! It is your responsibility to look
after them and use them wisely!
The run course is a 5k loop, so two laps for the 10km runners.
The course is through and around the scenic Hope Estate Winery and surrounding property. The course may include but is not limited to
fire trails, uneven, bumpy, and slippery ground (if wet). This is an OFF road course, not a Park Run course. Please SLOW down and take care on the
down hills were the track maybe slippery under foot! Follow the slashed track, pink flags, black and green arrows, pink and yellow
tape. Enjoy the scenery, the hills, and get back to the finish line safe, where the real fun begins! It might be a good idea to bring a
change of shoes (joggers) and possibly clothes, in case of a wet track!
