A stunning early Spring landscape, long winding country roads, a few challenging (but fun) hills and a refreshing glass of wine waiting for you in a picturesque setting. This ten mile race kicks off at Black Birch Vineyard and takes you on a tour of two quaint New England towns. The course is suitable for all ability levels. It’s positioned two-weeks after the Saint Patrick’s Day 10K and two-weeks before the Fort Hill Brewery Half Marathon, as you look to plan your early Spring season. There will be a 3-hour time limit to complete the course.
