Highlights

 They run along a challenging out and back course along scenic farm roads in Burnet County.

Overview

The race follows an out-and-back route that starts and finishes at the Spicewood Vineyards (hence the name of the event), a locally owned award-winning winery founded back in 1992 whose specialties include their Chardonnay and Sauvingnon Blanc wines, both of which have won numerous awards in Texas wine compeitions. From there — the winery lies just off Highway 71, on County Road 409 — runners head out onto the scenic farm roads of Burnet County.

Because much of the race takes runners over rural dirt farm roads, whose surfaces can be alternately rocky, sandy or even slippery in spots, the race organizers have volunteers out on the course to ensure that any tricky spots are covered.

The course features what the organizers describe as “two monster hills” around the middle portion of the race, but there’s a big reward for climbing these hills, they add, as these sections of the course feature some of the route’s best panoramic views of the nearby farmland and hills all around.

Once runners reach the half-way turnaround point, they then head back along the route they’ve just run all the way back to Spicewood Vineyards for the finish. Following the race — which runners in both events have a time limit of four hours to complete — there will be post-race festivities at the winery, including wine tastings and food.
