Nia 's thoughts:

There were two options for packet pickup: pre-race and race day. I took advantage of the pre-race pick up. Everything seemed to go smoothly, quick and easy.

Race day started off well. Some friends and I walked over to NTC to avoid having to pay for parking. Parking was included in the VIP package along with some additional swag. Upon arrival there was great music playing, lots of bathroom options and a bunch of people prepared to enjoy a fun run. The downfalls were: the packet pickup line was incredibly long, some folks had already begun to take advantage of the wine garden, and it appeared as though the race was going to start late. We didn't mind about the late start time because we weren't in a rush, and the music was great. The MC did call the crowd to line up at the start line, but there was no defined place to start. And the disorganized course followed for the entire race. It was very frustrating.

Post race was just as disorganized as the race unfortunately. The wine garden filled up extremely fast, making it very cramped. Each finisher was supposed to get one glass of wine, but the wine ran out very quickly. And a lot of people were upset.

There had been so many complaints that all of the runners were given a free entry to the 2017 Ultimate Wine Run in 2017. There are a lot of areas that can be improved on, and I look forward to reviewing the upcoming race!

Why would I recommend this race, even with all of it's flaws? This is a fun run, and it was overall a lot of fun. If you're looking to get together with friends, run a 5k and then having some wine... this is the race for you!
