Galveston Wicked Wine RunSaturday, April 6, 2019 in Galveston, Texas 2 of 7
Krys and Sam Davis, we salute you. Back in 2013, these two runners and entrepreneurs came up with the idea of drinking wine while you run. That's right, you heard us—wine while you run. Fast-forward a few years later, and the Wicked Wine Run series is a bonafide running (and drinking) phenomenon, with more than 25 races across the United States—and more being added all the time. Sign up for the evening 5K or the 1K tasting walk—or both!—followed by a rocking after-party with food trucks, live music and you guessed it, more wine!
While not traditionally considered "Wine Country," Galveston is the perfect southern setting to pair your love for running and wine together, and this course traverses scenic East Beach's oceanside views. Because what goes better with wine than the beach?
