18th Annual (And Final) Sour Grapes Half & Half Trail Run
The Sour Grapes half & half trail run first started in 2001. A group of runners were unable to secure a spot in the Grandma's Marathon for that year. As a result, they decided to organize a run that would be fun, challenging and a means to enjoy the company of other enthusiastic runners; hence, the birth of Sour Grapes half & half.
