On Saturday, September 19, 2015 at Winesburg Park in Winesburg, OH, Jeff Polen Music will be partnering with the Winesburg Great Grape Race (which happens every five years) to bring you an amazing day of running, walking, music, and more. The 5k course is kind of like a 3.1 mile version of the Amish Country Half, and the views are incredible!
All registrants will receive a free brunch, race shirt, and other goodies.
Race day registration begins at 7am. The 5k begins at 8am, and the 1 mile Family Fun Walk will begin at 9am. Brunch will be served beginning at 10am.
There will be a brief awards ceremony, and the the musik festival will begin around 10am. The musik festival will feature Polen, John Schmid, If We, and more… An official musik festival schedule will be coming soon.
For the best pricing, be sure to sign up by September 1.
Since I will not be able to run the race on September 19, I have been running the course in advance and will be having a “Match My Run” event. The closest runner to match my run by plus or minus 5 seconds will receive a $50 gift certificate from Vertical Runner in Wooster, OH. (It should be noted that runners who stand by the finish line to “Match My Run” will not be qualified for the gift certificate… Sorry. That idea is clever, but just plain wrong.)
As we move closer and closer to the event, I will be revealing more details and releasing more Update Videos. Check out the first two update videos below:
