The focus for the McArthur Ridge Vineyard Run the Ridge is about creating an opportunity for all individuals to achieve success yet be personally challenged along the way be it striving to complete a 5km, 10km (walk/run) ,21km run or as part of the 20km Team relay.
It is an event that enables anyone to have a go and in the process work towards a healthier and fitter you.
This event will see you run or walk through some spectacular Central Otago scenery – the openness will astound you even if you are a local and the wine and craft beer tasting at the end will make it all worthwhile.
The Run the Ridge 5,10 and 21km distances will lead you on gravel roads, along vineyard headlands (Grass) and through the vineyard rows. There will be some small uphill and downhill parts in all three distances that will elevate the heart rate. You will be running through and past some spectacular scenery. The 20km Teams relay complete 4 x 5km lap.
While we will be having some prizes to celebrate those who place in the event, most of our prizes will be spot prizes from our awesome sponsors.
If this event encourages you to get off the couch, get up and get moving, or provides you with an opportunity to achieve a personal best in a 21km run – then we believe we have been successful!
See you on the 8th Feb 2020
