Onsite Events

On the 9th of March 2024 we will host our 3rd event of the Run The Vines Trail Run Series 2024 presented by First Ascent at the spectacular Alto Wine Estate.

Not only will it be our 3rd event for 2024 but it will also be our celebration of the start of Run The Vines 10 years ago!!!

Alto is a farm with a rich history, befitting its status as one of the icon estates of the Western Cape winelands.The first title deeds date back to 1693, but it was only in 1919 that the farm was given over entirely to vineyard.

This will be the 1st Run The Vines event that will be hosted at Alto. We are excited about the future at this amazing farm. 

This year we will also be celebrating the start of our 10-year celebrations in March.  We are also proud to announce that First Ascent is now the main sponsor of our events. Other sponsors like 32Gi, Manzi Water Paarl, Peninsula Beverages and Echo Friend Rentals are again committed to 2024.

Run The Vines is a Trail Run series for the whole family. Young and old can enter and it is suitable for all fitness levels. Walkers are welcome on the 3km, 5km and 10km distances. Please do not walk the 17km distance.
