What could be better than running through a beautiful vineyard and raising money for scholarships? June 3, 2018 will be the
25th Anniversary of the Marianne Talley Fun Run at Talley Vineyards and we would love for you to come out, get some exercise and help us raise money for scholarships for Arroyo Grande High School students. There is something for everyone: a 10K, 5K, 1 mile kids run, and a 1 mile walk; or you can volunteer or donate to help!
My sister, Olivia, is currently training for the 5K because she really wants the very coveted “I Beat the Vintner” T-shirt. My dad, the vintner, is also training. You can see his very intense training video here (but please be warned it is very hard core!)
Marianne Talley was my Aunt, who passed away before I was born. Although I never got the chance to meet her, I am able to hear wonderful stories about her from my parents, my grandmother and her friends. Marianne was an avid athlete: she swam on the USC swim team and she completed the 1992 Iron Man Triathlon. After she passed away my father started the Marianne Talley Fun Run as a way to honor Marianne by encouraging people to exercise and support our local community.
Please think about joining my family and me on June 3, 2018 at 8 a.m.
You can walk with my grandmother and cousins,
you can try and beat my sister and father in the 5K, you can volunteer with my mother and the others who help put on this special event, or you can pose for some pictures that I will be taking. See you there!
