Saturday August 29, 2020 - NOW A REMOTE RUN (aka Virtual only)
Kenosha County recently cancelled all public events for the rest of 2020. - Because this event utilized the Bong Park located in Kenosha County, this event is now a REMOTE RUN (aka Virtual only). If you have registered for this event you may defer to an alternate event or run remotely. Packets will be shipped to all participants.
Join us for your choice of a 5K or a leisurely walk - "Run Now, Wine Later 5K" taking place on August 29, 2020 at Brightonwoods Orchard.
Brightonwoods Orchard / Aeppel Treow Winery specializes in apple and pear fruit wines, hard ciders and dessert wines. An on-site distillery allows the winery to also produce special brandies and sorghum whiskey.
Brightonwoods Orchard is located on one of Wisconsin's scenic Rustic Roads between Milwaukee and Chicago. It is immediately adjacent to the Richard J. Bong State Recreation Area, a managed prairie with hiking trails, campgrounds and visitors' center.
The course starts at Brighton Orchards. Runners follow the Apple trail before entering Bong recreational Trails and then return to the winery for celebration and wine tasting.
