As we’ve shared before, running has become a part of our “vineyard culture” at Saltwater Farm. And what better way for us to show it than by being the Presenting Sponsor at the inaugural Mystic Half Marathon and 10k held this past weekend to benefit the charitable works of the Rotary Club of Mystic and put on by the Hartford Marathon Foundation.

There were tons of smiling faces and plenty of spectators cheering them on.

There were even several members of our Saltwater Farm family running. A special props to our girl Bethie for hanging in there and finishing strong and to Mark for crushin’ it yet again! Way to go guys!

IMG_2874It looked like so much fun, I have decided to come out of retirement (aka start running again) and train for the Surftown Half Marathon and 5k being held at Misquamicut Beach in Westerly, RI on Sunday, September 13, 2015, and which Saltwater Farm will be the Finish Line Sponsor for the third year in a row. It has become one of our favorite days of the summer and we can’t wait to be there cheering all the runners on, or in my case, crossing the finish line.

We hope to see everyone there!

Cheers to all who participated and all who are training for Surftown!
