Join us for this magnificent 1st Annual Drink MO Wine Run in Augusta, Missouri! The run begins in the quaint and hilly town of Augusta. After touring around the quiet, historical streets, you head down to the Katy Trail for some flat, fun miles. The 5k and 10k turn around and head back while the half marathoners will enter Klondike Park and enjoy the beautiful, wooded trails. After looping around the unique park, runners head back to amazing Augusta to finish!
The finish line will include local businesses, light snacks, and an award ceremony at the park adjacent to Mount Pleasant Winery. All runners receive a “Passport to Missouri Wine Country” to guide you through the area wineries & shops, a finishers wine glass and a race t-shirt. All half marathon finishers will also receive a festive wine stopper medal!
Thanks to our title sponsor these wineries will be on your passport: Augusta Winery, Balducci Vineyards, Montelle Winery, Mount Pleasant Estates, part of The Hoffmann Family of Companies.
