What's the best way to simultaneously lose and gain weight?! Drinking and running at the same time. 

 

The team and I love it when Wicked Wine Run comes to Dallas/Fort Worth area. If you ever wanted to get fit, drink booze and have fun…this post is for you. Here are our top 5 reasons for why you should attend the next Wine Run in your city.

1. The Company

 

Before we talk about why you should run and drink booze at the same time, you should know that the company behind this idea is brilliant!

 

 Wicked Wine Run was the first of its kind to introduce wine themed runs to workout fanatics, like ourselves. Their website says that Krays and Sam Davis, the creators, “envisioned an original event concept that anyone would be excited to participate in, whether avid runner, wine lover, foodie, or couch potato.” By packing their events with emphatic energy and great music, the company produces an experience that is enjoyable and exciting.

 

 

2. Accessibility: Race Anywhere

 

Even though the What Taylor Likes team attended the event in Dallas, Wicked Win Run hosts a slew of events in Arizona, California, New Mexico and more. You can find a compressive list of race day locations here.

3. Location

 

Let’s talk about the race and location now.​

 

We got to run (or walk – let us be real) through the vineyards and trails of Lost Oak Winery in Burleson, Texas. This winery was the perfect spot for the race because we got to behold the calming creeks, grand oak trees and winding walking paths that surround the fifty-two-acre site.

 

It was very picturesque!

 

Just to be clear, the race is a fun run. People dress up in costumes, have fun, and drink wine beforehand. If you are a serious runner, you can race competitively through the vineyard. You will have time yourself, and there aren’t any medals.

 

You do get a souvenir glass and wine at the end. So be sure to finish!

 

 

4. Tasting Walk

 

What better way to taste wine than on a walk through a vineyard.

 

The Tasting Walk varies per event. However, ours began at 7:00 pm and included four tasting stations. We received a sampling of two whites and two reds. The best part of the tasting was that the wines came from Lost Oak (the winery that hosted the run).

 

 

Note: You don’t have buy tickets to run and walk if you don’t want to. You can participate in one or both. If you would like to be a spectator, you can buy tickets for $10.

5. Party On

 

After the tasting walk, you get to dance and sip at the “Wicked Post Race Party!” This party includes Food Trucks, various vendors, a Live Band and more wine of course. We brought some snacks to accompany the bottle of wine and packed a couple of blankets so that we could layout after we finished walking.
