The 5K to Rebuild Wine Country takes place on Sunday, March 11 at 10 a.m. on the Napa Valley College Campus followed by a wine tasting event and family-friendly festival.

All proceeds benefit the Habitat for Humanity rebuilding efforts in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and Solano counties following the October 2017 wine country wildfires.

The race starts at the track on the Napa Valley College Campus and as runners head south the track takes them through J.F. Kennedy Park along the scenic Napa Valley Vine trail and back.

Flat and fast, this 3.1-mile course is good for both walkers and runners of all ages.

In addition to individual participants, the 5K Run to Rebuild Wine Country is offering a variety of ways to get involved, including the following:

  • Virtual Participation: If it is not convenient to get to Napa on March 11, the committee encourages interested parties to register online as a virtual participant. They will receive the T-shirt and race bib via mail and still support this great cause.
  • Corporate sponsorship: With Brighter Tomorrow Events Management underwriting event costs of the run, more of the sponsorship money will go to Rebuild Wine Country to aid Habitat for Humanity.
  • Form a company team: Companies can create a team on the 5K Run to Rebuild Wine Country registration platform; employees and their family members, customers, vendors, suppliers, etc. are all eligible to participate as members of a company’s team.
  • Corporate challenge: Two leader boards on the event website will showcase the top 25 Bay Area companies that have 1) the most registered employees (live & virtual) and 2) companies with the most money raised (peer-to-peer funds raised plus sponsorships plus donations)
  • Fundraise: Whether as a team or an individual, the registration platform makes it easy to set a fundraising goal and invite family and friends to donate to the cause.
  • Volunteer: Volunteer as an individual or group for the 5K to Rebuild Wine Country. Help is needed before, during and after the event. Sign up online and include how large the group is, and the committee will find a job that the group can all do together.
