The destination race garners competitive runners from all over the world, who experience the beauty of Salinas Valley while running alongside local wineries and fields of fresh produce. Runners start at the Historic Soledad Mission and end their race at the Finish Festival hosted at the Pessagno Winery in Gonzales, CA.

Team Taylor also had a booth on display during the Finish Festival, where we handed out samples of veggie snack trays and fruit packs to runners and attendees. Our snacks were overwhelmingly popular among participants – 1,200 snack samples were gone in a matter of 2 hours!  Popular is an understatement!
