Once again the Vineyards At Jockeys Neck will be the venue for the Annual Childhood Development Resources (CDR) 5K run which is one of their premier fund raising events for 2018.  CDR is a non-profit organization who provides vital help to individuals and families who have developmental needs in Williamsburg and james City County.  To learn more about their heroic mission please see their website at  

We work closely with the CDR volunteers to minimize the impact on traffic in our neighborhood during the event, but please keep in mind that during the Fun Run (7:30 Am - 8:30 AM) and the 5 K run (8:30 Am - Approximately 9:30 AM) Jockeys Neck trail will be closed to traffic from the clubhouse to lake Powell road while the event starts and after 9:30 Am the runners will be on Jockeys Neck trail so traffic will be slowed.  Please plan accordingly.

The CDR staff will begin setup at the Clubhouse parking lot on Friday afternoon beginning about 3:00 PM.  If you have contractors wil large trucks, the area around the Clubhouse on Jockey's Neck Trail will be limited regarding height from Friday afternoon until about 3:00 PM Saturday.  This is because the starting line timing equipment spans the road and is about 9' off the ground.  Please make note of this.

Parking for the event will be in 3 primary areas - the first is the grass field on the South side of the vineyards.  Once this fills then the field across Jockeys neck Trail leading to the upper dam will be used.  Once areas 1&2 are filled then cars will be parked on Goodrich Durfey (volunteers will ensure that no driveways are blocked if parking on the road is necessary) and finally on Reserve drive (again, volunteers will ensure that no driveways are blocked if parking on the road is necessary).

Here is a map of the parking areas as well as the Fun Run and 5K course:

You can print out a copy of this map by downloading the PDF file at the bottom of this page.

The back gate of the Vineyards (at the end of Jockeys Neck Trail near the Winery) will be open for those residents who are past the clubhouse and can be used to enter and exit the neighborhood.

The event should be wrapped up by early afternoon and of course the run is weather-dependent.  We will send out an email to notify residents should there be schedule changes.  We should all be very proud of this significant contribution to our community - CDR very much appreciates it!
