The Grape Stampede kicks off a day of fun in our rural Mission District. This 5K & 10K race is a long standing tradition. The race is followed by the Nuestra de Soledad Mission Fiesta at 11 AM. The first ten registrants recieve a few BBQ ticket for the best Ribs in South Monterey County. The Course is beautiful on an autumn morning, through rolling hills, past vineyards, and row crops. This race has a small town feel with a Continental Breakfast following, fun raffle prizes, and genuine appreciation for your participation and support. We would love to see you out for Race Day!
