Running the Vines 5K/10K

8 a.m. - 11 a.m.

The 10th-anniversary Running the Vines 5K and 10K races Shelton Vineyards are now set to take place Sept. 11, after being postponed from May 15 because of the pandemic.

Both races promise beautiful views of the vineyard and neighboring country farms, and finish on the grounds of Shelton Vineyards in front of the winery.  The races take place rain or shine.

For participating in this exciting 5K/10K event, runners receive a 10th-anniversary race T-shirt, custom finisher's medal, packet filled with sponsor goodies and entertainment at the band shell immediately after the race during the Afternoon Cool Down. The Afternoon Cool Down (11 a.m.-3 p.m.) will have live music on the amphitheater stage, along with tasty fare from food trucks, as well as Shelton wine and NC craft beer.

All race entrants also receive free admission for two (2) to Shelton Vineyard's Summer Concert Series that evening, featuring Eric Chilton and the Chill Tones. Concert hours are 6-9 p.m.

This event was originally scheduled for May 16, 2020. It was postponed to Aug. 1, 2020, and then again to May 15, 2021.
