NIAGARA WINE TRAIL RACE #2
LOCKPORT, NY: Spring Lake Winery - Please join us on Thursday July 9, 2020 for race #2 of our brand new Niagara Wine Trail Summer Running Series! The race series is being brought to you by iRun WNY with net proceeds being donated to Niagara Hospice! This spectacular new running series will take place at a variety of great local wineries across Niagara County.
All participants will be presented with a custom wine bottle finisher medal as they cross the finish line. These special edition medals also make great key chains if you choose to remove them from the ribbon. Each host winery in the series will feature their own unique custom wine bottle finisher bottle medal. Collect all the bottles in the series and you will be eligible to win some really fun prizes!
RUN FOR THE FUN!
This unique 5K trail run will take place entirely on Spring Lake Winery property in Lockport, New York. We have designed a scenic two loop course that takes place primarily on groomed trails. There is also a section of the race that takes runners through the vineyards at both the midpoint and finish. Please note that depending on the weather, there may or may not be muddy areas on the course. There is also at least one small (but steeper) hill climb and descent on the trail. We have decided to limit the total number of race participants to 150 maximum runners on race day. Each participant will run individually as we plan on starting runners one at a time with faster runners going ahead of slower runners to allow for proper social distancing on the course and to comply with state guidelines.

In the event of foul weather, public safety concerns, or for any other reason deemed necessary by race organizers (ex: state of emergency, shelter-in-place, limit on social gatherings, etc), we want runners to know up front that we are planning to convert this to a virtual 5K race. Runners will run 5K on their own during a designated window of time and submit their finish time as instructed. At their convenience, participants can stop by Spring Lake Winery and pickup their official race bib and custom finisher medal. Save the bib and bring it back any time during the month of July to claim your free wine tastings. Additionally, if the event is converted to virtual, all registered participants will automatically receive Free Entry into a private post Covid-19 running event (5K Run/Walk) being planned by iRun WNY and Race Management Solutions once things get back to normal!
