Running the Vines is the Yadkin Valley Wine Region's premier 5K/10K event, featuring a full day of great live music, delicious food, wine and NC craft beer - all on the beautiful grounds of Shelton Vineyards in Dobson, NC. In addition to a fun and exciting 5K/10K event, participants receive an awesome race t-shirt, packet filled with sponsor goodies, live musical entertainment at the band shell after the race during our Afternoon Cool DownPLUS 2 free tickets to the Shelton Vineyards Summer Concert Series kickoff concert that evening featuring The Will Jones Band.  Spend the day with us or make plans for a couples, friends, or girls getaway weekend!

We have a race for everyone. Hit a new PR on our flat and very fast 5K course, or challenge yourself on the more rolling, scenic 10K. Both races feature beautiful views of the vineyard and neighboring country farms and finish on the grounds of Shelton Vineyards in front of the Winery.  The 5K Team Challenge offers a chance for you and your friends to show everyone who has the fastest team and take home the 5K Team Challenge trophy.  Little "vine-runners" can take part in the Kids 1/2 Mile Kid's Fun Run at the vineyard where each will receive their own finisher's medal.
