Adventure Race - Sweat Now, Wine Later

Adventure Race - Sweat Now, Wine Later


The date for 2016 is May 7th!  Mark your calendars now!  


Canton Parks and Recreation is partnering with Run Canton, Ernie's Bike Shop and Gervasi Vineyard in hosting the first ever Sweat Now Wine Later Adventure Race taking place on May 2, 2015. Kayak your way on Nimishillen Creek from Martindale Park to the Middlebranch Trailhead at Spangler Ave, NE. Hop out of the kayak and run or walk to Gervasi Vineyard. The entire course including your run and kayak will be 5k.  Enjoy a post race gathering at Gervasi Vineyard with music and fun atmosphere.

Registration for the Sweat Now Wine Later Adventure Race has opened and is for anyone ages 12 and up. Any participant under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Transportation will be provided from Gervasi to the beginning of the course at Martindale Park beginning at 8am. In the event of poor weather conditions, an alternative course has been created.

Racers will be started individually on a tight schedule of time intervals to ensure fair spacing for the remainder of the race. Time will be started when the runner crosses the first mat located in Martindale Park and then ended when the finishing mat is crossed.
