An entirely new class of running event is coming to Oregon’s Willamette Valley Wine Region this summer. Fueled by Fine Wine, in collaboration with Energy Events and Dundee Hills Wine Growers Association, is proud to present the first annual Fueled by Fine Wine Half-Marathon on July 11, 2010. This event sets itself apart by exploring some of the most magnificent vineyard vistas in Oregon, as well as by working with local Dundee charities and Oregon sponsors including Fit Northwest, AA Sports, Energy Events, NowDesign and many others, creating an exciting event for the region while also supporting the local economy.
Race architect Chris Nagy, president of Fueled by Fine Wine and Guest Relations Manager for Archery Summit Winery, points out that on this run “You won’t run your best time – but you’ll have your best time. It’s a run that delightfully blends Oregon’s love of outdoor adventure with the passion for fine wine.”
