Our annual event is held the Sunday morning of Memorial Day weekend. For 2021 we are celebrating our 10th Annual run on Sunday, May 30th.
Alexandria Figure Skating Club and the Alexandria Kiwanis are excited to bring to you the Annual Awake the Grapes 5K and 10K runs! Also, new this year, a 0.0K Awake the Hops “run”!! This event 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.
