Run Now ... Wine Later 5K Adventure

About the Event
Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Run Now Wine Later 5K Adventure is southeast Nebraska's most unique trail run to benefit Girls on the Run of Nebraska, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

Located on the beautiful property of James Arthur Vineyards, the fifth-annual event features a scenic but rugged mixed-terrain course. Participants will traverse 3 miles of roller-coaster hills through the woods, past the llamas (that's right, llamas!), around the grapevines and past the orchards before reaching a secluded picnic area near the finish line.

Your entry package includes:

  • One bottle of JAV wine (choice of dry red or sweet white)
  • 5K T-shirt
  • Post-race pastries and mimosas at the finish line
  • Souvenir champagne flute (one per registered runner)
  • On-site parking at the venue (permit required)

Proceeds from this event benefit Girls on the Run of Nebraska, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident with running.

No other area running event boasts the scenic vineyard setting, challenging trails, event souvenirs and delicious finish-line fare of the Run Now,Wine Later 5K Adventure.
