Calling all runners who didn’t make it into the Broad Street Run: This news is sure to cheer you up. Good Day for a Run is debuting a brand spankin’ new Run the Vineyards 10-miler at Wagonhouse Winery in South Jersey on the very same day as the Broad Street Run, May 3rd. Aaand there will be free wine at the finish line. All cheered up? I thought so.

The timed run, which kicks off at 9 a.m., takes runners across 10 miles of open, low-traffic roads, past all sorts of lovely non-city scenery like rolling hills, horses and farms. The race will end with a short run through the Wagonhouse vineyards and, at the finish line, every runner will get a finishers medal and a glass of wine. Sounds like a pretty sweet way to spend your Sunday morning, right?

Registration will run you $30, with all proceeds going to local charity Mikes Miles. The run is limited to 100 runners, so if you’re interested, sign up fast. Like, um, now. You can register here.
