The 5th annual Vintners 5 Miler presented by the Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation is a unique trail run or walk through the Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict Vineyards in the beautiful, world-famous Santa Rita Hills. Runners and walkers will be treated to one of the most unique experiences on the Central Coast!

Along with the run & walk, a Finish Line Festival welcomes everyone of all ages to celebrate the coming harvest from Santa Barbara’s wine region. This can't miss festival will provide you with exclusive tastings of some of the best regional food and wine as well as live music to enjoy it with! For any kids, attending there will be a family zone with games and a bounce house.

For the 2019 event, the Vintners Foundation’s beneficiary will be the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. In 2018, proceeds were donated to the Santa Ynez Valley Community Aquatics Foundation, and in 2017, the Los Alamos Youth After School Program. Visit our About page to learn more.
