Grapest lifts a glass to wine re­gion

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

Fit­ness en­thu­si­asts can com­bine their love of run­ning and wine tast­ing at the Grapest 5k Run at Xanadu on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 7.

The fun run will in­clude a 5km trail through Xanadu’s vine­yards with four wine tast­ing sta­tions along the way.

The event is part of the Mar­garet River Wine Re­gion’s 50th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, mark­ing half a cen­tury since Dr John Glad­stone iden­ti­fied the re­gion as a pre­mium site for wine-grape grow­ing.

Xanadu’s Dave New­man said it was an hon­our to rep­re­sent Mar­garet River.

“The event is sure to of­fer vine­yard views truly worth writ­ing home about, com­bined with a lit­tle healthy phys­i­cal chal­lenge,” he said.

The Times will give four lucky read­ers the chance to win a ticket to the event.

To en­ter, join and share the Face­book event Grapest 5k Run — WA.
