Wine tasting fun run!

Enjoying a glass or two of wine might come with plenty of medical benefits, but isn't typically a pastime associated with exercise. You sit. You drink. You might get up to top up your glass… or not… and repeat. In any case, you usually don't walk terribly far, let alone run. At this new series of wine-tasting fun runs, however, you'll put in the hard yards before you get your red and white rewards. The Grapest 5K Run, the most widely anticipated, unique event to hit Australia, 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. But wait… there’s more… there’s an after-party with live entertainment by ‘Hurricane Fall’, one of the country’s top up-and-coming country rock bands. But, if you're not up to the first part, and you're simply keen on wandering, sipping and learning about wines, that's also an option (although it does defeat the idea of combining fitness with taking a tipple). Held in Lovedale, Hunter Valley on Saturday 6 May as part of Hunter Valley Wine & Food Festival.
