iTRI365 is bringing a new half marathon to East Texas! Starting and ending at Kiepersol's gorgeous winery. iTRI365 is bringing a half marathon to Kiepersol Estates where runners will be running out of the neighborhood, into the beautiful little town of Bullard, Texas.
Since we know just how taxing a half marathon is, we have chosen to keep our half marathoners out of the vineyards with the exception being the last quarter mile to the finish line. Our 5k and 10k participants will enjoy a more scenic, yet challenging, route through the estates and vineyard, however, less than 50% of either race will be on trail. Runners will get the best of both worlds! Be prepared for relaxing and enjoyable post-race festivities, including the pouring of Kiepersol's own wine. A portion of the proceeds of this race will be donated to Mane Mission, a 501(c)3 charity for the betterment of the lives of the mentally challenged ~ our forever children. More details to come!
It is with very heavy hearts that we share with you today our decision to cancel the 2020 Corkscrew Wine Run.
After much deliberation and discussion amongst our race team, we have determined that we cannot hold the event and grant our participants the race day experience that they have come to expect and love these last few years given the current regulations and climate surrounding COVID-19. We also want to be respectful of our gracious and amazing hosts at Kiepersol as they continue their operations under complicated guidelines.
We are automatically deferring all registered 2020 athletes to the 2021 event and have been notified as such by email. We will be announcing the date and more details regarding the 2021 event later this fall.
We thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter. We are looking forward to the days of racing together once again. Until then, we wish you and your families the best of health.
Should you have any questions about the deferral process, or any other race related issue, please reply to this email or contact us directly at [email protected].
All the Best,
The Corkscrew Wine Run Team

Join us in sending our condolences to our @Kiepersol family on the loss of their loved one.
Our hearts are breaking as we lost a great compass in our family yesterday...Jimmy Hines. Jimmy was the 97-year-old grandfather of Jim Durrett, our distiller. Jimmy was the inspiration behind Jimmy's Bourbon for the distillery, but more importantly, he was a guiding light to his family and so many that crossed his path. A true character that could weave a story with his wit and keep you on your toes wondering what he was going to say next.
Jimmy was a torpedo bomber pilot in the South Pacific in World War II. The goggles on the bottle of Jimmy's Bourbon are an homage to his service and many successful and safe flights into danger. He was a true icon and hero. Funny and charming Jimmy swept Birdie off her feet as soon as he got back from the war and they have been inseparable ever since. Jimmy, we will miss your joyful spirit and wry smile. Heaven has gained an awesome soul. We thank God for the mark Jimmy made on this world. We love you, Jimmy.
All of us in the Kiepersol family are lifting up prayers of gratitude and peace for Holli, Jim, Dusti, and their families.

I've been reading the survey responses and there is a lot of good feedback. I appreciate both the praise and critique. A few topics from what I'm hearing and my initial thoughts on adjustments...
Problem: Zigzagging through vines is hard at the end of the event.
Solution: A redesign for an out and back that has only the finish stretch in the vines.
𝐌𝐲 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝: 𝐀 𝐟𝐞𝐰 𝐫𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐚 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐧𝐞𝐱𝐭 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐫𝐮𝐧 𝐦𝐲 𝐧𝐞𝐰 𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐭. 😁
Problem: Confusion on route direction at finish as well as mile markers.
Solution: All routes finish the same and flags for different route mileage.
Problem: Confusion on where to go and the wait on the trolleys.
Solution: New course designs would allow us to start and finish at the winery.
Problem: Bottlenecks on lines.
Solution: This was a learning year on this setup and we have a pretty simple fix with a more open layout and specific area for wine.
I never want to ignore the criticisms, but I do know I can't make everyone happy. Each year we tweak some things a little and some things a lot. And we don't know what we don't know, which is why these surveys help us continue to improve. So THANK YOU to all who took the time to add comments to our survey.
If you are one of the runners willing to test run a new route, shoot us a message so I can reach out.
