Vines, Pines, and Inclines—August 24!

THANK YOU!!! to all the parents, players, coaches, and other volunteers who helped out to make our fourth annual trail run and fundraiser happen. Your help was greatly appreciated!     

The fourth annual trail run and fundraiser for the BBYHA will be on Saturday, August 24. Volunteers will be needed. This is one of our major fundraising events so please plan to participate!

Your help can directly impact the fees for the coming season. Please contact your team manager.

Want to spend an evening running among succulent grapes hanging from the vine in beautiful northwest Bloomington? We've got it all—a lovely setting, a challenging course and fun festivities afterward. Join us for the 4th running of Vines, Pines and Inclines benefitting the Bloomington Blades Youth Hockey Association.

Once again we will offer a 5 mile trail run on the infamous Double Black Diamond Trail of Death, the Vineyard Walk, and the Kids One Mile Runway Fun Run. Great family fun and all for a good cause!

The Trail Run is 5 miles. It starts in the vineyard, runs into the surrounding wooded area and ends back in the vineyard. There is one steep hill, 1/10th of a mile in length at approximately 4 miles into the course. The trail is wide enough for multiple side-by-side runners. There are narrow water hazards, and mud will be present if rain occurs within 3 days of the event. 80% of the surface is grass.

The Vineyard Walk will go around the main portion of the vineyard. The participants will not enter into any of the wooded areas. The surface is 100% mown grass.

The Runway Fun Run will begin and end near the start of the grass-strip runway which is located on the grounds of the vineyard. The participants will run from one end of the runway to the other and back. Approximately one mile.
