PARKING

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!



ARRIVAL

Please try and 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 came 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.


REGISTRATION
At registration you will be given a colored 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 2.45pm



START TIME- APROX 3.00PM

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 4.30pm, 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 there gone, there gone! It is your responsibility to look after them and use them wisely! 



THE COURSE

The run course is a 5k loop, so two laps for the 10km runners. The course is through and around the scenic Drakesbrook Estate and surrounding property. The course may include but not limited to uneven, bumpy, and slippery ground (if wet). This is an OFF road course, not a Park Run course. Follow the slashed track, pink flags, black and green arrows and pink tape. Enjoy the amazing views 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 wet weather!

FIRST AID

If at any time on the course you need first aid, ask one of our volunteers who will be clearly visible in a fluorescent orange vest. If you can’t make it to a volunteer, then please make yourself as comfortable as possible and send another person to seek assistance. A staff member will continually circle around the course to give assistance to anyone who needs it. There will be first aid located at base camp to give medical care if necessary.


WATER STATION

There will be unmanned water station on course (if it's a warm day) please help yourself to ONE bottle and bring that bottle back to the start/finish area. We have a strict 'LEAVE NO TRACE' policy and do not want to upset the vineyard owners and staff. We are extremely lucky to run through the property. ALL participants will receive a water bottle at the finish line for the start of their 'Wine Waddle'. You can still bring your on water bottle for back up!
