WHEN: SATURDAY AUGUST 31 2019
START TIME: We have 4 waves (1:00pm, 1:15pm, 1:30pm, 1:45pm) to ensure participants are spaced out and can enjoy the full tasting experience.
START LOCATION: Cherry Point Vineyard
DISTANCE: 13.5km run starting at Cherry Point Vineyard to Rocky Creek to Venturi Schulze finishing at Blue Grouse Winery. There is a time cut-off after Rocky Creek of 4:00pm where we will direct you straight to Blue Grouse, missing Venturi Schulze.
WHATS INCLUDED: Wine samples at each of the four wineries, Bernard Callebaut Chocolates and a fully catered dinner (by Food For Thought Catering) and of course more wine at Blue Grouse Winery.
EVENT CAP: 200 participants
Book yourself a seat on our bus transportation with Wilson's Transportation to and from Victoria (pick up location is park&ride at Helmcken Rd). $45 lets you enjoy the event and not worry about getting home safely. We encourage everyone to car pool and have a designated drive or better yet, stay the night in Cowichan!
If you are driving yourself or a group, park at Blue Grouse Winery and we will have a shuttle bus to the start. The shuttle will be leaving Blue Grouse at approximately 12:30pm. This is the shuttle for all waves so please be sure to be on time if you are looking for a ride to the start. We cannot leave vehicles at Cherry Point as they will be locked behind gates.
BOTTLE SERVICE: We know that when you sample wine at each winery you may want to purchase a bottle to take with you. We've got you covered. We will have volunteers at each winery that will package up all your wine purchases at each winery and transport them back to Victoria for you so you can enjoy the event not worrying about getting your bottles home.
REFUNDS: We are unable to process full refunds for the event even due to illness, injury, etc. We apologize for this but event expenses are paid upfront and already expenses per registrant. Due to the popularity of the event we can offer a 50% refund up to August 15th. No refunds for any reason after that. No exceptions. Sorry.
