If you want wine, you’re going to have to work for it.
Bendigo’s Balgownie Estate is again hosting The Grapest 5k Run. It invites wine lovers to take an afternoon jog around the property. Participants can choose from either a five or 10-kilometre trail.
There’ll be four wine-tasting stations awaiting you after your workout, so you can reward your efforts with a glass of your favourite drop.
You’ll also receive a prize bag with a tasting cup and wristband, as well as the chance to refuel at one of the food vans on offer. Live entertainment and the afterparty are your added incentives.
Participants who don’t feel like driving home can book a night in one of the estate’s recently launched glamping bell tents and wake up to a vineyard sunrise. There is also a bus service available.
The run starts at 4pm.
