Wilmington Whiteface Whiskey Run

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.
Cost: 5K: $25 | 10K $30 (Virtual same price)

Welcome to beautiful Wilmington, NY, the home of Whiteface Mountain and the 5th annual Whiskey Run, now with a 5K added to our traditional 10K!

But why a Whiskey Run you ask? As it turns out, the area has quite a storied history with liquor, legal and otherwise. During the War of 1812, Wilmington supplied good rye whiskey to the American troops at the Battle of Plattsburgh as part of their daily ration. During prohibition with its proximity to Canada, Wilmington residents provided temporary haven for bootleggers crossing the border, and until recently, Wilmington was home to US Barrel, a whiskey barrel cooperage.  So with our somewhat checkered history and natural beauty we invite you to join us for the annual Wilmington Whiteface Whiskey Run June 18th, 2022 starting at 9:30 am at Preston Festival Field in Wilmington. Following the race is the awards ceremony with food available for purchase at Preston Festival Field.  Run participants will receive a t-shirt and a “swag bag” filled with quality local goods. Run finishers will receive a medal.
