Thank you to the Santa Barbara Athletic Association and running community for naming us the 2017 event of the year! The Vintners 5 Miler is proud to be an SBAA Grand Prix event.
The 4th 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.
The Vintners Foundation will be announcing recipients of 2018 proceeds as we near the event date. In 2017, proceeds were donated to the Los Alamos Youth After School Program. Visit our About page to learn more.
