2023 Ecco Adesso 5K & 10K w/ Bishop’s Events Benefiting Vet First, Inc.

November 5, 2023

Join us for our Second Annual 5K & 10K Race with Bishop’s Events at Ecco Adesso Vineyards! Bishop’s Events was launched in 2011 with the mission of giving back to others by providing local runners with high quality races that benefit local and national charity organizations. Ecco Adesso and Vet First Inc. are teaming up with Bishop’s Events for our November Race to support Vet First’s veteran employment efforts and mission to end hunger through local farms. 

For each race, Bishop’s Events will be giving Vet First Inc. 25% of all profits. Vet First is a non-profit that provides employment to local Veterans and ties together agriculture with giving back to the community. Vet First is near and dear to Ecco Adesso Vineyards as we currently have a farm location on site at the winery where crops and produce are maintained by Veterans and donated to the local community. 

Participate in this amazing cause and enjoy hospitality from our beautiful, countryside winery! We will have craft beer, selected wines, cider, and light fare offered on site. Runners receive 1 Glass of Wine from Ecco Adesso, Finisher Medal, Technical (Dri-fit) Event Shirt, and a Chip Timed Event. The race will begin at 10am. For registration and more information, visit:
