    Is the run going to happen, or was it cancelled

      Hi Cristeen – I assume you are referring to the Airfield Estates 5K Vineyard Run? As far as I know the run is still happening and has now been posted to our website as wells theirs; this isn’t actually an event we host, but one of the activities Airfield Estates puts on as part of their participation in Catch the Crush weekend. You can find more information and register for the race on the event page on their website.
