Santa Barbara Vintners 5 miler

FUN!!!!!!  Come experience something completely different!  This festive race involves 5 miles of solid dirt, rolling hills, vineyards, alfafa fields and sunshine!  The Santa Barbara Vintners 5 miler had it all.

Set up at Sanford Winery, this well organized event featured a completely cross country easy to follow loop through the vineyards, semi-coastal terrain, aged barnyards, and delicious California winemaker views….aka Field of Dreams.  The after party featured a bouncy house for kids, live band, wine tasting from many local vineyards and a full gourmet meal from The HitchingPost.  Heaven?

Yes.  I mean, “tastes pretty good to me.”  Especially considering the very generous prizes and did I mention the wine????

If you didn’t run this race this year, you definitely need to put it on your bucket list for the years to come.  It simply doesn’t get much better.  Well done!
