Cowichan Valley Wine Run 2017
Well, judging by all the smiling faces, the second Cowichan Valley Wine Run was a success! Two hundred runners and walkers set out to visit four Cowichan Valley wineries on a scorchingly hot day in early September.
The start of the 13.5km route was Cherry Point Estate Wines; much wine was sampled as participants waited for the first wave of runners to head out.
The first running segment was the longest and took runners past farm fields and rolling hills.
Rocky Creek and Venturi Schulze wineries were the intermediate stops on the route.

A long day of running and sampling wines was capped off at Blue Grouse Vineyards, where a feast and live music was to be had on the patio overlooking the fields.

Thank you to the organizers, the hosts, the volunteers, and all the participants for a great day in Vancouver Island wine country!
