In an Australian first, Centaur Outdoor Events will launch a series of Grapest Fun Runs around the country.

Okay, so it's a fun run. They happen all the time. What's different about these fun runs then you might ask? Well, Grapest Fun Runs are held in the evening in vineyards and combine running, gourmet food, wine tasting, live music and glamping - all rolled into one gigantic super fun event.

The 2017 Grapest 5k Fun Run will take part at Lake Breeze Wines, in the late afternoon, through sunset and into the night-time, in November this year. Fun runners can choose the 5km or 10km course through scenic off road country trails and the beautiful vineyards in Langhorne Creek on the Fleurieu Peninsula, south of Adelaide.

Lake Breeze's Event Manager, Kate Cooper, said "Being able to host the Grapest 5K Run here at my family's vineyard, Lake Breeze Wines, is indeed exciting. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase all the greatest aspects of Lake Breeze and Langhorne Creek. The only thing I'm nervous about is my Grandpa (owner of Lake Breeze) outrunning the rest of us!"

Not into running but still keen to be involved in this unique event? Then, why not join and just participate in the 1km wine tasting walk. Each run finishes with this very cool, cool down which is a wonderful warm up for the live entertainment on offer at the Sip-Happens After Party for the rest of the evening. Each runner or walker doing the wine tasting trail will be treated to some fine local food, great music from one of the country's top up-and-coming country rock bands Hurricane Fall and, of course, top class wines from Lake Breeze and their cellar door partners.

It's all going to happen at Lake Breeze Wines in Langhorne Creek and online runner registrations are now open.

Alexandrina Council's Mayor, Keith Parkes, said "We are delighted to welcome the Grapest 5K Run to the Langhorne Creek region in 2017. The Langhorne Creek Wine Region is regarded as one of the best-kept secrets in Australian viticulture and is one of Australia's oldest and most significant wine regions. We encourage locals and visitors to not only enjoy the fantastic local wine and produce, but have fun and be active at the same time."

The event is for adults only and is guaranteed to blow your running shoes right off.
