Tue, 03/05/2019 - 20:01
The Caveman 5K Roar and Pour Trail Fun Run and Wine Tasting Event is now in its 6th year and keeps getting bigger & better with 900 participants last year. There is no other run quite like it with runners dressed as Cavemen & Cavewomen running through the vineyards and along the gorgeous gorge cliff edge. It is a ROARING good time with many amazing photo opportunities along your run (or walk). The run ends outside of our tasting room where we will praise your success and hand you a wine glass and tickets to sample four different delicious Cave B wines. Enjoy a picnic on our grass with your pre-ordered lunch of Pulled Pork Sliders from Country Boys BBQ or a pre-ordered fresh Veggie Wrap from Dilly Deli while you taste the wines & listen to music for some post-race fun! (bring your own blanket) Cave B Estate Winery is a beautiful place located in Quincy, Washington, next door to the famous Gorge Amphitheater overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. This trail run wanders through the Cave B Familigia Vineyards, through the sage dotted desert plateau and along the cliffs overlooking the Columbia River. It is an event for all levels: walker, joggers, runners - a fantastic training run, beautiful views and chance to get out and enjoy the majesty of the land and nature. The 5K Trail Fun Run starts at 11 AM. At 10:15 AM prior to the Caveman 5K Roar and Pour Trail Fun Run will be a Carol's Cabernet Loop Kid's Run. Even if the exercise part isn't your thing, we'd love to have you join us as a fan or a volunteer roaring and cheering for the participants and sampling our wonderful award winning wines. We are excited to support students in 2 local high school band programs with this years 5K run with $2 of every registration and 100% of all sponsorship monies raised going towards them. At Quincy High School monies raised will go towards much needed marching band uniforms for their newly formed band. At Wenatchee High School funds will be used to support sending participating students to Disneyland this spring to march in the Disneyland parade and have behind the scenes recording opportunities. As Plato once said, "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." If you would like to make a greater personal contribution towards these young musicians for their band programs you may do so on the run registration page. We appreciate any help you can give. Thank you for your support! Please let us know if you or a business you know would like to be a sponsor as well.
