Ms Pinot and Ms Rose show our runners the true spirit of the Terroir Run!

We’re super excited to announce that our good friends at Zest Kitchen Shop have generously donated a prize to reward the runner with the best costume at our 2014 run! While we’ve had a few creative and courageous runners get into the costume spirit in the past (we’re looking at your Karin D and Petra KM) we’re encouraging ALL of our runners to add some ZEST to our run and come in costume this year.

Zest Kitchen Shop will be providing the winner of the ZEST costume award an awesome summer picnic basket. Inside the wicker picnic basket (that has an insulated/zipped waterproof lining to keep food inside warm or cool) the winner will find: two durable/reusable Ecologie plates (made of crushed bamboo and rice husks), two break resistant, BPA-free wine glasses, two sunflower drink covers from Charles Viancin that seal tightly on your glass to keep little critters like fruit flies out of your drink (works on all smooth rims including plastic), a marble cheese knife, double lever corkscrew, pack of 20 napkins and a hibiscus wine stopper. Our crew at the Terroir Run will top up the basket with a bottle of PEC #VQA wine and some delicious cheese from Black River Cheese Company.

Everything our ZEST costume winner gets to celebrate their success!

On your marks, get set…Register!

2014 Terroir Run Registration is now open! Be one of 100 runners to take part in our 11km fun run in Prince Edward County on Saturday, May 24th. New for this year, the complimentary Sandbanks Vacations Shuttle Bus will be running from Norman Hardie Winery to the starting line at The Old Third Vineyard from 7:45am to 8:30am. Leave your car and a change of clothes at Norm’s and join us for registration prior to the 9am start time. There will be a follow van to transport any of your property back to Norm’s. We will NOT be offering return transportation from Norman Hardie Winery back to The Old Third after the post run lunch has been served. We are working away on some fun additions to this year’s program so please – stay in touch! Looking forward to running with you this May!

Mark Saturday, May 24th in your calendar!

We’re excited to be making a few changes to our run for 2014. Next year’s run will take place on Saturday, May 24th (no more early Sunday morning wake up calls for our runners). We’ll be adding some more programming to round out a great weekend in Prince Edward County. Details and registration will be posted in December.

A run to the wine-line?

Forget the finish line – our runners aim is the wine-line! While we may pass 9 County wineries along our 11km route we don’t drink their wares along the way, rather, we enjoy the fruits of their labour (and ours) at the final stop. Each participating winery has been asked to feature one of their wines. Continue reading
