The Spring Forward 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run is a fun family event with a course that winds through the vineyards, fields and surrounding wooded areas at Linganore Winecellars.
Participants of the event will be rewarded with a wine tumbler to use at the post party wine tasting, provided by Linganore Winecellars and post race snacks. Saskia and the Truly Unruly Band will be entertaining you as well. Please make sure you stick around and enjoy the great view with a flight of wine (age appropriate, of course) and/or soft drink, and music while you relax in beautiful surroundings.
Proceeds from the race will benefit AC Cugini's Roma 00 and 01 Boys teams' soccer trip to train in Italy.
AC Cugini’s Roma 01 and 00 Boys teams are raising funds to participate in AC Cugini’s award-winning Play Soccer in Italy program, developed in 2001 to expose American players to Italian player development; allow players the opportunity to add international playing and training experience to their soccer background; and offer the most talented players access to Italian talent scouts. For the first time, 2 teams from Maryland, AC Cugini's Roma 00 and Roma 01 Boys, will be participating, traveling to Italy in July 2017 to stay at the Italian Olympic Athletes Training Center in Rome and on the Italian Adriatic. The program includes training with instructors from the Italian National Olympic Committee and Italian Soccer Federation; friendly matches with high-level Italian teams in both Rome and on the Italian Adriatic; and review by talents scouts from professional clubs AS Roma, Lazio, Juventus and Brescia Calcio.
Our goal is to make the travel affordable for all to participate in this life changing experience, and that is where your participation in the Spring Forward 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run event comes in!
