CAMPING

HOME BASE

The Silver Moon Race at Cass Winery has a few options for setting up a home base during the race. For those looking for more luxury and actual lodging will want to reserve one of the limited rooms at the GENESEO INN located within the vineyards, the other and more popular option is camping right on the course.

Camping at the race adds to the overall race experience. Giving you a home base before, during, and after the race where you can rest, access your stuff, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. If your running 12-hours or longer we highly recommend setting up camp for the best experience. You can reserve a camp space when registering for the race.

There will be several designated camping zones right off the course and race festival area for easy access throughout the race. These are not traditional campground spaces, plan to be fully self-sufficient with your camping set up. Portable toilets and trash dumpster will be available, please dispose of all trash before leaving.

PRO TIP

As the race starts at 6:00 PM, it is highly recommended to come set up camp on Saturday morning, set up camp, check-in, enjoy winery lunch, and then take a nice long nap in the afternoon so you can be well-rested before starting your 6, 12, 24-hour or 100-mile journey.

Wine Walk

CAMPING AMENITIES

  • Portable toilets will be available near the race festival.
  • In the center of the vineyards, there is a large reservoir pond with a dock that participants can jump into to cool off during or after they finish. Note: It's a shallow dive of about 3-4 feet of water, but gets down to 8-feet quickly, recommend do NOT to dive in head first
  • Around the back of the tasting room, there is an outdoor shower available that can be used to wash off.  Bring your towel and a change of clothes.
  • A trash dumpster will be available near the race festival.

CAMPING RULES

  • No cars driving on the course route from Saturday 5:00 PM to Sunday after midnight.
  • Zones 3, 4 & 5 require driving and setting up right along the course, so tents set up in these zones need be for the duration of the entire event until Sunday night or Monday morning. Okay to drive to unload before the event and load after the event has completed. If leaving these areas before the race is over Sunday night then you will need to carry your items back to your parked car. A wagon is very helpful.
  • Full-size RVs or fifth-wheel trailer RVs if staying for until Sunday night or Monday morning then can park at designated zones for RVs, if leaving before the race finishes then you will need to set up in the parking zone. We recommend turning around before parking so it's easy to exit.
  • Do not leave any trash behind, respect the lands, clean up after yourself, either take trash with you or deposit into the trash dumpster by the race festival.

GENESEO INN

Situated in the middle of the Cass vineyards is the GENESEO INN, providing the perfect B&B retreat that gives you room to breathe and enjoy the race for the ultimate race experience.

8-rooms available and they do sell out in advance, reserve a room directly through CASS and mention that it's for the Silver Moon Race.
