Did you know that many of our runners make the Terroir Run a full-weekend experience. Further a large number return annually as we find that most are not just here for 10K but rather to connect to a unique community. This year we’re introducing a new opportunity to do just this, the Back to the Start Barn Party.
Apart from a chance to reconnect, share run stories and get another serving of local food & drink, this event will be extra-impactful. Why? Well it’s called Back to the Start because the dinner is hosted in The Old Third’s historic barn where our run begins and it’s a chance to give something back to the owners who have been with us since the beginning. The difficult news is that Bruno Francois, the winemaker and our annual race starter, has been diagnosed with lymphoma and so all proceeds from the evening will go towards hiring help to support the vineyard and winery operations while they focus on getting Bruno healthy. In County tradition let’s gather not in sadness but as a community. We’ll honour the vineyard’s work and the larger spirit of craft and hospitality found from Consecon to Waupoos and all acres in-between. Please plan on joining us to eat, drink, dance and give back.
Sat, May 27 5PM to 10:00PM
Food: Burgers & famous Fries from Jamie Kennedy Kitchens, fresh shucked oysters from The Shore‘s Sam Ravenda (kiss up to her as her new restaurant, Sand & Pearl Rawbar down by the Sandbanks is already the big news of ’17), something sweet (think Canada’s best buttertarts) from our long-time supporter and County icon Peter Grendel and his Pastry House kitchen.
Drink: Local beer, wine, cider and a special cocktail from the County’s new Kinsip Spirits. (drink tickets provided to get you started then cash bar afterward–please drink responsibly)
Music: DJ Ombudsman will be spinning his magic.

Pluck Tea will be there too! Serving up our new magical colour changing iced tea for a hydrating refresher. Looking forward to a great evening.
