KING CITY — Rotary Club of King City has announced the return of the Rabbit Run, which will be held Saturday, April 8, beginning at 9 a.m. at the San Bernarbe Visitors Center, located at 53001 Oasis Road in King City.

The second annual fun run has relocated to San Bernarbe (Delicato) Vineyards off Oasis Road and includes both a 5K (3.1-mile) course and 1-mile course. Participants can walk, run or hop this timed course from the vine to the wine.

“This year’s course includes spectacular views of the vineyards, Chalone Peaks and the Santa Lucia’s,” said TJ Plew-Hearne, event committee member. “We are thrilled to be working with the team at Delicato and San Bernarbe to present a healthy, fun, family activity for our community.”

Following the run, wines from Delicato will be available to taste for participants 21 of age and older. 

The event proceeds will support the Rotary Club of King City Foundation scholarship program, which to date has awarded more than $125,000 in scholarships to graduates of King City High School.

All racers will receive a sport style T-shirt, commemorative participation ribbon and invitation to the post-event festivities at the San Bernarbe Visitors Center (including wine tasting) with their entry fees. 

Fees for Adults are $40 for the 5K course and $30 for the 1-mile course, while both courses for youth (18 years and younger) are only $15.

Winners in the 5K age group will receive the seasonal easter ribbon, and first-place winners will receive delicious carrot cakes.

“Don’t miss your chance to run, walk or hop from the vine to the wine at the Rotary Rabbit Run,” Plew-Hearne said.
