OCTOBER 13, 2018
iTRI365 is excited to this half marathon to East Texas for the 2nd year! Starting and ending at Kiepersol's Winery and Distillery, this race will offer serious runners a great, paved course and our 5k & 10k runners will get a more scenic run through the vineyards, with about 50/50 of pavement and trail. Produced by a local company, we work to keep our focus on staying local, promoting and supporting our small business owners as well as those organizations who pour both love and finances back into our communities.
Swag will include wine! Would you expect anything less from a run at a winery??
We also believe in giving back to locally run and funded charities. This race will donate a portion of our proceeds to Mane Mission, a 501(c)3 charity for the betterment of the lives of the mentally challenged ~ our forever children. From sponsoring recreational camp activities, to vocational training, to placement in group homes, a Mane Mission scholarship makes a great difference in the lives of mentally challenged citizens and their families.
Most of the hills will be in the beginning and end of this race. The bulk of the run is relatively flat and goes through the small and charming town of Bullard, Texas. Runners will go through 'downtown' and by the Bullard High School before running to a turn around and heading back to the winery. We are excited to work with the Bullard Police Department and the City to bring more attention to some of the most beautiful parts of East Texas!
5k & 10k Course information
We won't lie. There's nothing 'easy' about these courses, however, the scenery of the vineyards and property is worth all the work. Not to mention the wine at the finish line! Following in the footsteps of the annual Corkscrew 5k, we wanted to keep the tradition of running through the vines. While our half marathoners won't get quite the 'tour', the 5k and 10k participants will have an exclusive peek at the beauty and design of Kiepersol's Vineyard and Estates. This is considered more of a trail run.
