Grant Brinklow, Sandalford Wines CEO, said the second annual VineRunner Festival was a truly unique event.

“VineRunner was unlike any other run in WA, or possibly for that matter Australia, because it drew lifestyle runners in an incredible setting as opposed to the normal alternative. It was very special too because it brought together people of all ages and from all walks of life who enjoyed the opportunity to discover a vineyard in a manner they would not otherwise have opportunity to do,” he said..

The event raised over $4000 for WA Police Legacy with many in the Police and
Associated services competing
