Wine and Walking Combine at Weekend Event

If you’re looking to sip some wine without worrying too much about calories, this weekend’s 1K Wine Walk in Crystal City may be up your alley.

Walkers can sample more than 30 different wines while walking a 1K indoor course through the Crystal City Shops (2200 Crystal Drive). Participants can use their 20 tasting tickets on wine or snacks. Walkers also receive a t-shirt upon crossing the finish line.

Tickets are sold for different “heat” times that start every half hour from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Many of the heats are already sold out, and organizers expect all heats to be filled by the time the weekend arrives.

Tickets are $35 and $40, and can be purchased online. Tickets for the inaugural 1K Beer Walk next weekend can be purchased on the same website.

    1K? Do I have to qualify in a half K in order to sign up? Will they be passing out those silver heetsheets at the end in case i’m cold?

    1k? Hilarious. Don’t kill yourself, Arlington.

    • Chris G.

      It’s an indoor wine drinking event with a race theme. Don’t take things so seriously.

    Wow, lots of people not getting it today.

    • John Fontain

      We get it, we’re just having fun with it.

    We did this last year. It was a blast.

    I smell top notes of pretentious bull$sh1t with an undertone of boredom!

    This would be a much better event if it were 5K and if it were whisky or gin (or even beer) instead of wine.

      Maker’s Mark ftw!

      There is a 1K Beer Walk the following weekend.

    Is there anything interest at those crystal city shops?
