Tom Wright called me as I was getting off of 90E at the Hudson exit proclaiming another wet soggy event? It wasn’t raining where I was , in fact the skies were OK?? But as I neared Golden Harvest Farms and Harvest Spirits Distillery, the skies opened up!!! Not another rained on event! This time, it stopped raining as registration started and CRNA’s 2nd Winery 5K Trail Fun Run went off without umbrellas or soaked trails!
A BIG thank you to Derek Grout, owner of Harvest Spirits and his Father from Golden Harvest Farms for being gracious hosts to one and all. Unlike Hilltop Orchard in Richmond, MA, Harvest Spirit’s course was flat and fast-not one hill. The runners ran through the rows of apple trees, by grass chomping cows all the while smelling apples, mash, and the coountry.
Afterwards,many sampled fresh made apple cider, wonderful cider doughnuts, and Harvest Spirit’s Vodka products.
As always the CRNA staff was in top form having the event be easy and fun for the runners. Carolyn and Stephen Wilson, Tom Wright-event leader and Phil Hawkes-Teeter all contributed to make the event a great one!!! Thank you to one and all.
And then as I started to leave after packing up…it started to….yep you guessed it….rain!!
