Who said you can’t drink wine AND exercise at the same time? On next weekend The Grapest 5K Run (18+ Event) is not quite like many runs - this is a 5K run with wine-tasting and will have you exploring some of the most exquisite trails and vineyards at Balgownie Estate, Bendigo as you enjoy some of the best wines in the region! Held on Saturday February 11, 2017, The Grapest 5K Run is the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. It will take you on an outdoor evening adventure as you run through the vineyards and trails of the stunning winery - Balgownie Estate Bendigo - at dusk, leaving you to enjoy fine wine and spectacular views at the end of your run. Starting at 5pm and ending at 9.30pm, participants can take part in the 5K or 10K run then stroll through a kilometre of four- wine tasting stations as they cool-down, or if running is not for you – simply take part in the 1K wine-tasting walk only and taste some of the best wines in the region.

On the night you can expect to receive a lanyard with a custom wine tasting cup, headband and wristband and at the end of your run enjoy an unforgettable wine tasting experience at dusk alongside live entertainment.

You will indulge in some of the finest wines during the wine tasting as Balgownie Estate is regarded as a leading Victorian wine producer - crafting long-lived examples of complex Cabernet, Shiraz and Chardonnay from the older Bendigo vineyards.

The Grapest Run is a fun run with a cork-stopping twist and is perfect for everyone - whether you're a running enthusiast, a wine lover or just love a great night out, it is a perfect way to exercise and have your wine and drink it too, all whilst enjoying the stunning views of Balgownie Estate Vineyards.
