The "Wine Run Rioja Alavesa" returns after a two-year break forced by the pandemic. It will be held on Sunday, 30 October, in Labastida. Participants will be able to run, choosing between two distances, 10 and 20 kilometres, or walk between wineries and vineyards, getting to know and enjoying this wine-growing area in an incomparable landscape.

As if all this were not attractive enough, the event is rounded off with the Wine and Pintxos Fair, which will be held next to the Labastida Sports Centre. At the Fair, which will be open to the public, visitors will be able to enjoy wines from different wineries in Rioja Alavesa and live music with well-known rock covers by Anartic Rock Band.
