This past Sunday, the first annual Fueled by Fine Wine Half Marathon was held in the Dundee Hills. This difficult, yet beautiful, 13.1 mile course ended at Billick Park in Dundee, Oregon with an amazing wine tasting celebration featuring Dundee Hills AVA wineries.
Lange Estate poured the 2009 Pinot Blanc for the thirsty runners and spectators. A refreshing summer favorite, which was perfect for the mid-80′s weather!
Team Lange was represented well, with the first two team members finishing 15th & 16th out of 777 runners! We had about 25 runners sporting the “Team Lange” shirts, which were the talk of the race. Congrats to the whole team for finishing!
The entire event was expertly organized and executed, especially for being the first year! Most of the runners agreed with the race tag line: “You won’t run your best time- but you’ll HAVE your best time!” The grueling hills were soon forgotten with the taste of world class wines, and everyone was looking forward to doing it again next year. Here’s to a fabulous event!
