Join us for this magnificent 1st Annual Drink MO Wine Run in Augusta, Missouri! The runs begin in the quaint and hilly town of Augusta. After touring around the quiet, historical streets, you head down to the Katy Trail for some flat, fun miles. The 5k and 10k turn around and head back while the half marathoners will enter Klondike Park and enjoy the beautiful, wooded trails. After looping around the unique park, runners head back to amazing Augusta to finish!
