Run The Vines is a series of trail runs that started in March 2015 when the owner of Onsite Events decided to host events that will encourage family and friends, young and old to have a healthy lifestyle by taking part in events that will accommodated all fitness levels.
The fact that the novice runner to the more serious runner can run with family and friends on a different wine farm every month while enjoying the good food, wine, hospitality and music after their run, surely contributes to the success of the series.
2020 Promises to be an exciting year with our new The Vines Club App and as always the 12 bottles of wine that you will receive at our annual prize giving function that takes place at the end of each year in February.
Runners must pre-enter and pre-pay in full on the day of registration.
This year's series will consist of 14 runs out of which you will have to do a minimum of 12 runs to be able to qualify for the 12 bottles of wine.
Runners that pre-enter for the series will also receive a T-Shirt as part of their series entry. The design will as always depict the fact that you entered for the series. This unique shirt will not be for sale to any other runners. We are also currently in discussions with a top brand to manufacture quality apparel for our runners.
Runners can down grade to any distance at any time, but will have to pay the difference should they wish to upgrade.
- Personilised running number that you will keep and bring with to every event. You will still have to pre-enter online at no charge just to confirm your participation for that specific event. If you pre-enter and bring your running number with you will not have to stand in the queue at registration. You can just pitch and run. If however you did not confirm your participation online you will still have to register at the event to let us know that you are there.
