The Half Marathon will be on quiet country roads traveling through beautiful Waterloo Recreation Area. Much of the half marathon is on dirt roads in great condition. 

The 5 Mile (Actually....... 5.22 Miles) is a loop starting on paved roads, followed by a couple of miles on dirt roads and ending with a fast strech of pavement back to the finish! 

The 5K is on all paved roads out through a beautiful tree lined neighborhood and back to the finish

All courses have some hills for you...but nothing a little Sandhill wine can't take care of at the finish!

You have 60 minutes to complete the 5K (Cellar Slam participants must complete 5K in 40 minutes or less). You have 2 hours to complete the 5 Mile. You have 3 ½ hours to complete the Half Marathon. You must be through 9.5 miles by 10am to continue the race.

There is one water stop on the 5K and two water stops in the 5 Mile. There are multiple aid stations on the half marathon every 2-3 miles. Half Marathon aid stations have water and gatorade. Mile 8 aid station of the half marathon also has GU gel.
