Sip a glass of wine while getting in a workout
Let’s face it: We all know the benefits of an afternoon jog, but we’d rather spend our evenings planted on the couch with a glass of wine. But what if we could do both at once?
If that sounds like you, then get ready for the Corked 5K coming up this Saturday, May 4, 5-8 p.m. The race starts at the City Hall Plaza downtown at 200 St. Louis St. with a wine stop at each mile of the 3.1-mile route. The race is followed by the Wine Down party, including live music, food vendors and, of course, more wine.
Registration is $45 for runners or walkers or $20 for those who want to enjoy the Wine Down party without the added exercise. More information on registration can be found here. Registration and packet pick-up starts at 3:30 p.m.
