Cheers and Christmas cheer at Spicewood Vineyards races

The Spicewood Vineyards Half-Marathon and 5K/10K is December 14.

The Spicewood Vineyards Half-Marathon and 5K/10K is Saturday, December 14. Dress up as Santa or an elf and enjoy wine tasting in your own souvenir glass.

The event takes place at Spicewood Vineyards, 1419 CR 409. Races go at 8:30 a.m., and the wine flows sometime after. A post-race meal with veggie option will be catered.

The courses are along picturesque county roads with a few hills to help build character. Aid stations will be set up with water and sports drinks about every 1½-2 miles.

The overall and masters winners — male and female — receive a plaque and wine (age permitting). Awards are also given to the top three finishers in age categories for 29 and under, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and up.

Santa Claus and Elf Divisions are open to runners who dress up. Costume judging takes place at 8:15 a.m. The top five male and female winners in this category receive a bottle of Spicewood wine (age permitting).

All distances are chip-timed.

Register online at Run In Texas. The event benefits Team RWB, which works “to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.”
