Grapest 5km Run

June 3, 2017

| $40 - $105
Grapest 5km Run

Australiaā€™s most unique and widely anticipated event is heading to Brisbane, and with only 7 weeks to go, the response has been enormous, and the event is promising to be the biggest and best of its kind yet! On the 3rd of June, one of Brisbaneā€™s premier vineyards, Ocean View Estate, is gearing up to host the fourth Grapest 5K Runā€¦ sip Happens!

Ocean View co-owner, Kate Honnef, said ā€œWe are really excited to partner with Centaur Outdoor Events to bring Brisbane an event which is about to become a ā€˜must doā€™ on the wine loverā€™s yearly calendar. The Grapest 5K Run is going to be all about having fun with wine, food and even craft beer, a new addition to Ocean View Estateā€™s offerings, in a stunning environment surrounded by vineyards, lakes and rolling hills for a bit of a challenge. We can’t wait to share our piece of paradise with all the Brisbane and visiting lovers of all things fine and fun.ā€

The Grapest 5K Run consists of two sections. First, you sprint, jog or set off at whatever pace suits you best, making your way through scenic vineyard surroundings for either 5 or 10 kilometres. Then you walk another kilometre, while stopping at wine-tasting stations along the way, sampling some of the best wines the country has to offer. Donā€™t run? Not a problem. Just register for the 1K wine-tasting walk, and be done with it! Itā€™s your raceā€¦ run it how you want to.

ā€œUnfortunately, all of the local accommodation has been booked out by eager ā€œgrapersā€. There are still a few ā€œGlampingā€œ tents availableā€¦ but not for longā€¦ they have proven very popular!ā€ said Peter Manning, Event Director. ā€œQueenslanders have really embraced the event, and weā€™re looking at record participant numbers at Ocean View. The live band, Hurricane Fall, who have been travelling with the event have been a smash hit as the post-race entertainmentā€¦ especially with the ladies.ā€

Whether youā€™re a running enthusiast, a lover of fine wines, or just love a great night out, the Grapest 5k Run has something for everyone.

Runningā€¦ wine-tastingā€¦ glampingā€¦ live country rockā€¦ what are you waiting for?
