Ehrhardt: 2018 Vineyard Run a big success

The annual Vineyard Run for Literacy on Oct. 14 was a big success, with 222 runners and walkers finishing the event.

All the race results, winners by age division, and finish line photos of all participants can be viewed on NorCal Timing’s Web site,

The Lake County Literacy Coalition thanks all the walkers, runners, donors and volunteers who helped to make the 29th annual Vineyard Run for Literacy a triumphant achievement.

Attendance was the best it has been in five years. Over $7,800 was raised to support the literacy programs and tutor trainings throughout the county.

A special thank you goes to Pilates Lake County and to the many individuals who collected sponsor donations or contributed financial support.

We would also like to thank Steele Wines for providing the venue as well as prizes for all first-place winners in each age division. WestAmerica Bank donated the supplies and printing for our advertising and registration, and many of the bank’s employees participated in the event.
