OCTOBER 12, 2019
iTRI365 is excited to bring this half marathon back to East Texas for the 3rd year! Starting and ending at Kiepersol's Winery and Distillery, this race will offer beautiful scenery, supportive locals, and an epic finish line party. Based on input from previous years, we have redrawn all three routes for 2019, but don’t worry, we kept that incredible vineyard finish! 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??
COURSE INFORMATION - ALL NEW ROUTES FOR 2019
Note: due to large portions of these routes taking place on private property, no pre-running of these courses will be allowed.
Based on runner feedback from previous years, we have redesigned each of the three routes for a better participant experience. We are thankful to have support from the City of Bullard and the local fire department….we definitely couldn't put on such an event without their support!
Finish in our Foodie’s Paradise!
This year at the Corkscrew Half we're having a foodie's paradise! Sysco East Texas is partnering with us, along with local restaurants, like Villa Montez, The Diner, Culture ETX, Brisket Love Barbecue & Icehouse - Lindale Texas..... and more who will be bringing a special 'bite' from their specialty cuisines for our athletes!
And what else? Ohhh, you know, just Kiepersol pairing their wines with each dish... This year is going to be mouth watering! We'd crawl a 5k for this.
