2019 Sangria 5K Dash

Hawthorne, FL


Join us for our Island Grove Wine Company 4th Annual Sangria 5K Dash and Fall Festival on Saturday,  Nov 16th, 2019.  The Sangria 5K Dash will benefit the Heart of Florida Youth Ranch. The Ranch is a home for children who have nowhere to go and have suffered loss of parenting due to abandonment, abuse, neglect or death.  The majority of their needs are provided by donations.  Please help us help the kids!

We are proud to be Race # 5 in the Big Hammock Race Series! 

The BHRS is a 10 race series throughout North and Central Florida that allows runners/walkers of all levels to achieve prizes and perks as they move through this fitness challenge.  All series participants in this year long challenge will be able to challenge themselves by acquiring points based on their race finish time and/or simply compete each race at their own pace to earn series medals.  Check out the awesome perks of joining the series at BigHammockRaceSeries.com today!

The Sangria 5K Dash and Fall Festival will be at our winery and at our beautiful on-property authentic cracker house.  The yard of the house is shaded by many hundred year old oaks where we will have music, vendors and food along with winery tours and wine tastings! 


The race will start promptly at 8am and begin and end at our historic 1897 cracker house, taking you through our beautiful Florida property and blueberry plantation.  With your registration, you will receive a Sangria 5K Dash Dry Zone shirt, a celebratory glass of sangria for those 21 and over (Gatorade for those younger) and an outrageous Custom Sangria 5k Dash medal (see below)!

Course Description:

Off road trail run through our blueberry farm and wooded areas surrounding the farm. The paths are mostly packed, with a portion of the run on softer dirt roads leading to the wooded areas. Portions of the race are in full sun and some are shaded.

This is the woods - there are bugs and dirt. Please plan accordingly and bring bug spray and sunscreen, it will not be provided.

Pushing a stroller will be an extra workout and difficult, please be prepared.
