Experience the Unforgettable Fueled By Fine Wine Race
Imagine a race that takes you through the heart of picturesque vineyards, surrounded by rolling hills and breathtaking landscapes. Welcome to the Fueled By Fine Wine race, which seamlessly combines the joy of running with the beauty of Oregon’s renowned wine country in the Dundee Hills.
Unlike traditional road races, this half, quarter and 5k marathon invites you to tread upon a path less traveled. Conquer hills and navigate diverse terrains, from dirt and grass to gravel roads, as you weave your way through some of the most celebrated vineyards in the Northwest. It’s a course that challenges you physically while captivating your senses with the sights, scents, and sounds of wine country. This race is not for the faint of heart, but the reward is worth every step—the opportunity to taste some of the most acclaimed wines in the region.
At the post-race celebration, runners and wine enthusiasts come together for an exclusive wine-tasting event. Indulge in the flavors of the Dundee Hills’ world-class wines, carefully crafted by winemakers who have perfected their art with fruit from the vineyards you ran through moments before.
Here’s the best part: you don’t need to be a runner to join in the fun. Tasting tickets are available for purchase at just $35, allowing you to skip the sweat and indulge in a journey through Dundee Hills wine, surrounded by fellow wine enthusiasts.
“There’s something special about the post-race vibe of the Fueled By Fine Wine that extends beyond just amazing wine and scenery,” notes Sean Rivers, co-owner of Foot Traffic, the organizer of this event. “There’s a familial air of camaraderie and friendship that emanates from both the wineries and participants in large part due to the approachable and authentic group of winery owners and representatives. This combination of racing and love-of-craft is something that I have yet to find in 20 years in the running specialty and running event industry.”
