Spots are still available for the Vineyard to 25k race event on Aug. 23, which includes a 25k, 15k/10k relay and 5k run, all winding through Leelanau County wine country before ending on the beach in Suttons Bay.
All three races are scenic point-to-point courses and encompass both the Leelanau Trail and Wine Trail of Leelanau County before ending near the beach in Suttons Bay. This beautiful course begins where the vineyards of the Leelanau Peninsula are closest to the heavens. Runners then traverse through the gently rolling terrain on the Leelanau Trail. A magnificent view of Grand Traverse Bay awaits as you descend towards its pristine blue waters. With six vineyards bursting with late season grapes, you are given a glimpse of what the wine trail of Leelanau County is all about. The final destination, the unique coastal village of Suttons Bay, rewards your completed journey through what many truly believe is God's country.
Proceeds from all races benefit Suttons Bay Public Schools and Tart Trails. Cash prizes totaling $1,000, age group awards and all-finishers awards will be given. For more information, including volunteer or sponsorship opportunities and registration, visit http://www.vineyard2bay25k.com.
