5K and 10K Vineyard Run
Our annual event is held the Sunday morning of Memorial Day weekend. For 2023 we are celebrating our 12th Annual run on Sunday, May 28th.
Alexandria Figure Skating Club and the Alexandria Kiwanis are excited to bring to you the Annual Awake the Grapes 5K and 10K runs! These events will take place on the beautiful grounds of Carlos Creek Winery in Alexandria, MN.
Proceeds from this run will go to the Alexandria Figure Skating Club to help support the aspirations of the figure skaters and to benefit children in the Alexandria Lakes Area.
Our 5K Course will wind the runners around the beautiful Carlos Creek Winery property and through the onsite vineyards.
The 10K course will lead runners on a picturesque race through the Carlos Creek Winery vineyards, out to County Road 34, along the east side of Lake Ida, east on County Road 61 to County Road 34 and back to Carlos Creek Winery.
Each course will have paved, gravel and cross-country terrain. Course maps are available on the Race Roster event website.
All preregistered runners will receive an Awake the Grapes event t-shirt. After all racers have crossed the finish line, gather outside of the Carlos Creek Winery tasting room for the award ceremony. Medals will be presented to the top place in each age range for male and female runners participating in the 5K and 10K races. Overall top male and female awards will also be presented for the 5K and 10K races.
