Why We Ask You to Run: The Culinaria Farm
Culinaria is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to benefiting the San Antonio community and promoting San Antonio as an ideal wine and food destination. One of our goals is to make San Antonio an epicenter of culinary education, which is why we’re excited for the possibilities of The Culinaria Farm.
The Farm will be an educational endeavor to teach our community how to grow their own food and the endless possibilities of what to do with homegrown fruits and vegetables. Through school tours, seminars, and chef-led cooking classes with produce grown on-site, it will be a center for food education and sustainability.

GOODIE BAGS (FOR THE FIRST 1,000 at PACKET PICKUP):
Culinaria race goodie bags are guaranteed to the first 1,000 runners to pick up their packets. T-Shirt sizes are unisex sizes and decided by the size marked on your registration entry. No trades or exchanges, please.
The Start Line corral system allows for a smooth race start for participants of varying levels. Based on the estimated mile time you provided on your race entry form, we ask you to correspond with the appropriate corral number for the start of the race. If you are running with a baby stroller or jogger, please understand that you must report to the back of the starting line to avoid injury of other runners.
In an effort to provide every one of our participants with as comfortable a run as possible, the Wave Start will be incorporated into Culinaria’s 5K Wine and Beer Run Event.
Participants are assigned to an appropriate corral based on their average mile time submitted on their entry form. When the gun fires, the first corral will be released. The rest of the participants will be held at the start line. At pre-determined intervals the next corral will be released. By using this staggered starting method, the pack will be spread out and allow every runner to settle into their racing rhythm from the first step right to the finish line.
**NO REFUNDS OR TRANSFERS PERMITTED. This includes registration fees, registration entries and t-shirts.**
