Benefiting Save a Mom Pregnant Dog Rescue
Experience the beauty of an autumn morning as you run through Gervasi Vineyard, passing the grapes ripe for harvest, orchards and more. Traverse the Middlebranch Trail through wetlands and forest, and finish at Gervasi Vineyard where you can enjoy food and beverage.
This 4.5K trail run/walk is sure to please. (Course was adjusted due to a cross country event at GlenOak that we were not notified about in advance. See map below.)
Registration is open to individuals and groups and includes a custom long sleeve tech race shirt, unique finisher medal, hydration and finisher food.
We are happy to offer the convenience of Early Packet Pickup on Friday, October 1st from 4:00pm to 6:00pm at the Still House.
Race Day Packet Pickup is from 8:30am to 10:00am in front of the Crush House.
In both instances, you may pick up for as many people as you like. (Just make sure they know you're doing it for them)
Each registrant will receive a $10 voucher valid for food, beverage and shopping in the Marketplace. These are good from race day through October 9th. We welcome you to join us after finishing the race at one of our restaurants on property. The Still House opens at 7:00am. The Crush House will be open with full service beginning at 10:30am, offering first-come, first-served hosted seating and casual fare. The outdoor Piazza will be open (weather permitting) with full service at 10:30am and, for your shopping pleasure, the Marketplace will also open at 10:30am.
There are just under 300 spaces on the Gervasi property, so please considering car-pooling. REACT units will be on site to help you into your space. Follow their directions!
Arrive early! Once the Gervasi lots are full, there is overflow parking at Hill Mill Church of the Resurrection, 1920 Schneider St, NE. (map). From there, it is a short walk down the Middlebranch Trail to Gervasi (aerial view).

A portion of the proceeds from each registration will benefit Save A Mom Dog. SAVE A MOM is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization located in East Sparta, OH whose purpose is to rescue unwanted pregnant dogs destined for euthanasia. 90% of the pregnant dogs we take in are dumped off at the pound because their owner no longer wants them. We are not picky! We try to take any mother dog that is facing death, as long as we have the space and funds. Our main source of funding is through donations and adoption fees. Once in our care, these momma dogs are given proper nutrition, vet care and assistance during whelping. The puppies are monitored for weight gain and proper development. All pups will have had their first set of vaccinations and de-worming. They will also be started on heartworm/flea prevention before being available for adoption. All puppies will be spayed or neutered before adoption.
The momma dog will then be spayed and all vet work brought up-to-date before her adoption.
At checkout, you will have the opportunity to make an additional contribution:
$5- Milk Replacer for Orphan Puppies
$10- Vaccine for a Puppy
$20- A Bag of Dog Food
$40- 6 months of Heartworm and Flea Prevention for a puppy or Momma Dog
