Fiesta themed race & after party inspired by our Mango Habanero Hard Cider!


Inspired by our Mango Habanero hard cider El Chavo, Chasing El Chavo encourages patrons of all ages to take part in one of Blake’s favorite traditions.

This fun fiesta themed 5k run/walk takes you through our vast, family-owned 150-acre orchard on gravel trails, testing your endurance. All racers will take home a commemorative pint glass and t-shirt. Racers will also receive an after-race donut, pint of hard cider and exclusive invitation to our after-race party in our Orchard Square where food and drinks will be available for purchase on our patio. Come join the party!

Costumes are highly encouraged. Strollers are permitted at your own discretion as the run will be on gravel. Pets are not permitted.
