My group of girlfriends (Bucket List Bitches) just ran our 8th 5k race! Our goal is to run one 5k a month for the whole year. We ran the Wicked Wine 5k held at St. Croix Vineyards in Stillwater, this was by far one of our favorite races. We all agreed we’ll be running this race again next year!
The race course ran through the vineyard, apple orchard, and around a corn field. As we crossed the finish line, we were greeted with a souvenir wine glass filled with your choice of red or white wine. They had so much entertainment to offer after the race. We enjoyed live music, 4 food trucks, lots of wine and even hard cider.
Post-race they held a costume contest for those who dressed up, the costumes were very creative! The winners; a couple, dressed as a box of wine and a bunch of grapes made out of balloons.
This event was 21+ however the vineyard is kid-friendly. You will find an abundance of play-sets and a fenced-in court equipped with tricycles to allow time for the adults to enjoy wine. The apple orchard building offered great snacks, I highly recommend the apple doughnuts and honey butter (Yum!).
The wine was amazing! My favorite was the summer red which was served chilled. Chilled wine after running was very refreshing and only $6.00 a glass. They offer a wide variety of wines, some of the best I’ve tried in Minnesota! I highly suggest checking out St. Croix Winery and apple orchard.
