Wilmington Whiteface Whiskey Run Presented by Haselton Lumber and the Little Super Market

Whiskey sampling, raffles, beautiful scenery, and a little history, too!

Welcome to beautiful Wilmington, NY, the home of Whiteface Mountain and, this summer, the 10K Whiskey Run! But why a Whiskey Run you ask? As it turns out, the area has quite a storied history with liquor, legal and otherwise. During the War of 1812 Wilmington supplied good rye whiskey to the American troops at the Battle of Plattsburgh as part of their daily ration. During prohibition with its proximity to Canada, Wilmington residents distilled moonshine and provided temporary haven for bootleggers crossing the border, and to this day, Wilmington is home to US Barrel, the oldest whiskey barrel cooperage in the Northeast. So with our somewhat checkered history and natural beauty we invite you to join us for the inaugural Wilmington Whiteface 10K Whiskey Run June 17th, 2017 starting at 9:30 am. Following the race is the awards ceremony with lunch available at Pourmanís Tap House along with free whiskey tasting by area distilleries and a demonstration of barrel making by US Barrel with a chance to win a whiskey aging kit. Run participants will receive a t-shirt and a ďswag bagĒ filled with quality local goods.
