The Monte Vino Races are intimate events with limited entries. In this new environment, the Monte Vino Races strive to bring together the running community in a safer, small crowd setting. Our mission is to provide our runners with a safer outlet to practice the sport we all love and support our staff and volunteers with a safer work environment. Future Monte Vino Races will take place in some of the most beautiful mountain vineyard landscapes.
The start and finish at 12 Ridges Vineyard has 360 degrees views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The out-and-back course is 3 miles on a wide grass path and the remaining on gravel roads. It is challenging and mountainous, with a mixture of gradual and steep ascents and descents, mostly downhill on the way out and mostly uphill on the way back.
