When Is It?

The 101.7 BAY FM Oyster Crawl 5K and Fun Run takes place on April 11, 2020. That means you get to greet the spring season by surrounding yourself in the beauty throughout The Dog and Oyster Vineyard, home to over six acres of vinifera and French-American hybrid grapevines as well as our iconic giant corkscrews that are perfect for photo opportunities. The race kicks off at 9 a.m. 

Will the Vineyard Be Open?

Yes, it will! You’re welcome to treat your taste buds at SIP, our cozy wine-tasting porch, as well as SLURP, our outdoor restaurant, which will both open at 10 a.m. There’s no better way to reward yourself after your run than with one of our perfect pairings of wine and food. We’ll have special prices during the event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and all race participants even get a complimentary wine ticket!
