The Hard Cider Run Virginia
What started off as a fun idea to celebrate Albemarle CiderWorks has turned into an annual event that welcomes spring! Dash through the orchard in pursuit of a yummy glass of hard cider! All participants of The Hard Cider Run will enjoy a picturesque 5K run or walk before enjoying a complimentary glass of the good stuff. After, stick around and enjoy a great afternoon at the cidery! Feeling adventurous and, um, hungry? Add on The Hungry Apple option when signing up! We'll have donut stations at every mile-marker for you to enjoy a scrumptious treat. After you cross the finish line, you'll receive the standard finisher's medal as well as the exclusive Hungry Apple medal! Be sure to invite friends and create a team of 4+, as each team member will save $5. Cider, springtime, and friends. Does it get any better? Packet pick-up is available the day before the race as well as on race morning. Details will be announced this winter.
