The Vineyard to Bay 25k is right around the corner! This long-distance race is unique to Traverse City in many ways.
The course alone makes this race very special! The rolling hills,
vineyard views and the stretch along the beautiful Leelanau Trail are
all notable. It is also the only wine-themed race in Michigan that
offers bottles of wine to age group winners. In addition, hand-crafted
ceramic tiles from Sporck TileArt are awarded to all 25k and relay
finishers. The six vineyards that are part of the 25k course include
Brengman Brothers, Shady Lane Cellars, L. Mawby, Ciconne's, Willow and Black Star Farms.
Runners are offered three options of races, all of which are point to
point to ensure new scenery the entire way: the full 25k, the 2-person
15k/10k relay, and the 5k run/walk. The 25k course is one of the few
point to point 25k courses in the nation.
