The Corked 5K, scheduled for Saturday May 6, 2017 at 6:00 PM has been postponed. We are working with city officials, local law enforcement, our vendors, and our sponsors to find a date on which we can reschedule. As soon as that date is known, we will let you know and your registration will of course be valid at the rescheduled date.
As is the case with any event, participant safety is our paramount concern. We have been working closely with law enforcement in recent days to ensure that your safety would not be compromised due to other issues happening in Baton Rouge. On Wednesday May 3, the Baton Rouge Police Department informed us that they no longer have the resources necessary to work our event smoothly and safely.
We regret any inconvenience this has caused for you and look forward to a date when we can #wineDown with you!! If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guaranty Foundation is thrilled to announce our inaugural Corked 5K, presented by Subaru of Baton Rouge, in support of The Guaranty Foundation! It's safe to say it's more about the wine than it is the running. Runners of all ages are encouraged to run, but you must be 21 years of age or older to sip our fabulous wines. Oh, and take your time out there.
There's a wine stop in each mile of our race course and if you want to walk and taste the wine, that's just fine by us. Don't want to do the 5K, but want the wine, that's OK too. Just select "Wine Down Only" when registering and you can join us at the Acura of Baton Rouge Wine .
Speaking of the party ... we call it the WINE . There will be wine from our awesome vendors, live music, and food. Every 5K runner will get a race t-shirt and entry into the WINE .
Nothing goes with running, wine, and food like live music. Our musical acts will be playing songs you know. Dancing is not required, but it is highly encouraged!
Local vendors will be on-site, pouring "healthy" glasses of wine for you to taste. Yes, there will be wine on the course, but we'll also have plenty for you at the WINE !
It's mostly about the wine, but it's also about the food! Your favorite restaurants will be dishing up the best grub in Baton Rouge. Pair these tasty treats with your favorite varietal!
