The primary purpose of changing oil before winter layup is for it anti-corrosive properties. You never drain 100% of the old oil, so it would seem mandatory that you run it for a bit.

I then change it again during spring commissioning, as those same anti-corrosives have degraded over the winter. That's why oil changes have both calendar time and use limits.
