The Spring Hops 5K is a cross country race held at the Red Shedman Brewery. The course is similar to the Striders' Run Through the Grapevine 8K, which is held at the same site. The scenic and challenging course loops through the grounds of the grapevines of the winery and hop yards of the brewery. All finishers get one sample of a Red Shedman beer and receive a commemorative beer glass.
The cross country course loops through the fields and wooded trails of the brewery/winery grounds. It is entirely on grass and dirt trails. A map of the 2016 course map is available below. The 2017 course will be mostly the same course with some alterations.
