Our first annual, Turkey Trot will take place in the beautiful, historic New Salem State Park. Run or walk, the race will begin and end at West of Wise Winery which has award winning wines from grapes grown in their family vineyard and other select Illinois vineyards. The race will include road and off road terrain next to the Sangamon River. If wine isn’t your thing, the winery also offers beer from great local breweries. After the race relax at our outdoor picnic tables while the bonfire blazes. Invite your friends and family to come run or walk with you and enjoy the day while sipping remarkable wines.
