McArthur Ridge Vineyard Run the Ridge

Run the Ridge Final poster

The focus for the McArthur Ridge Run the Vines is about creating an opportunity for all individuals to achieve success yet be personally challenged along the way be it striving to complete a 5km, 10km (walk/run) ,21km run or as part of the 20km Team relay. 

It is an event that enables anyone to have a go and in the process work towards a healthier and fitter you.

This event will see you run or walk through some spectacular Central Otago scenery – the openness will astound you even if you are a local and the wine and craft beer tasting at the end will make it all worthwhile. 

The McArthur Ridge Run the Vines 5,10 and 21km distances will lead you on gravel roads, along vineyard headlands (Grass) and through the vineyard rows. There will be some small uphill and downhill parts in all three distances that will elevate the heart rate. You will be running through and past some spectacular scenery. The 20km Teams relay complete 4 x 5km lap.

While we will be having some prizes to celebrate those who place in the event, most of our prizes will be spot prizes from our awesome sponsors. 

We are also about supporting and giving back to our community so this year, along with McArthur Ridge, we have decided that some of the proceeds from the event will go back to local groups and charities.

We will also be using The Central App to keep you up to date with race information – we recommend you download this App for FREE on your phone as we will be having a complete section on this app dedicated to our event where you can check out the weather conditions, competitor information, our wonderful sponsors, vendors who will be there on the day and much more.

You can also follow us on facebook at McArthur Ridge Run.

If this event encourages you to get off the couch, get up and get moving, or provides you with an opportunity to achieve a personal best in a 21km run – then we believe we have been successful!
