Get ready for the 2013 Grape Day 5K and Festival!
The Escondido Sunrise Rotary’s Grape Day 5K is a 5K fun run for everyone from elite runners to casual walkers, so bring the whole family out for a good time! Stick around for the Grape Day Parade and Festival where each participant will receive an included drink ticket for the wine and beer garden with world famous craft beer. Each runner will also receive a cool shirt and an even cooler schwag bag.
Once upon a time (i.e. the first half of the 20th century), Escondido celebrated their grape harvest and their city with Grape Day – a day full of free grapes and grape stomping. Grape Day is back in full force, complete with the free grapes, stomping of the grapes and general festival fun CLICK HERE for more info. Be part of the celebration by registering for the 3rd Annual Grape Day 5K.
The race course through historic Escondido finishes at the Grape Day Parade starting point. Runners can cool down while taking in Grape Day Parade sights and sounds, then refuel and have fun with family and friends at the Grape Day festival. The Grape Day 5K benefits the good works, locally and internationally, of the Escondido Sunrise Rotary including polio eradication, the YMCA, Boys and Girls Club and youth leadership programs.
