Great Grapes & Happy Hops Group Run...
Come join the Wake Forest Area Runners for our weekly “Great Grapes & Happy Hops” group run at Cellar 275 in The Factory at the corner of South Main & Rogers Road in Wake Forest at 6:00 PM every Thursday.
CHILDCARE: If you need childcare during the group run then please contact Linda Banks at email@example.com or through the Wake Forest Area Runners Facebook page.
Fantastic venue, wonderful courses, the best friends, and the post-run wine & ale specials in North Carolia.
Every week we offer both 3 mile and 5 mile courses. All the turns are marked with yellow paint.
We will meet inside The Factory at Cellar 275 (south entrance near Ziggy’s) in the large, dry, and warm foyer. It is dark now when we start our runs so wear reflective clothing or reflective gear.
After the run return inside to the warmth and comfort of Cellar 275 where you will find Gary at the counter ready to pour you a great glass of wine for only $2.00 or a frothy pint of craft ale for only $2.00. And, of course, all your take-home wine purchases are discounted 10% because you are a member of the WFAR!!

Run! Wake Forest, Run! We are headquarted in Wake Forest and serve runners in the surrounding area including Northeast Raleigh, Youngsville, Rolesville, Franklinton, etc.
Our primary goal is to enhance the local running community. By organizing and hosting group runs we will bring area runners into contact with each other building the camaraderie that is associated with our sport. Our socializing will further develop the knowledge and benefits of running for our members, while sparking an interest in those around us that do not already share in the joy and ecstasy of our enduring footfalls upon the ground.
We encourage the jogger that is just starting out and we cheer the runner that is challenging themselves through participation in road racing or triathlons. Come run with us!!
We invite all runners and joggers to become members of the Wake Forest Area Runners. We offer three types of memberships (including a free membership). To learn more please visit our membership page.
Join the WFAR'ians every Wednesday evening for a trail run along the Mountain To Sea Trail. Visit the club calendar for details and location each week.
