Each year, in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the Marathon of Médoc Châteaux criss-crosses the wine region and Médoc’s prestigious châteaux. Now France’s second largest marathon, this sporting event among the vines is open to all!
The race actually includes three days of festivities, filled with a variety of entertainment and activities.
Several refreshment stations can be found along the route, offering marathon runners a chance to sample some of the wines from the region’s estates.
And because enjoying yourself is the name of the game, runners are encouraged to come in fancy dress. The theme of the 2019 race? Superheros.
So costume and bib at the ready, it’s time for some fun!
From September 6th to 8th of 2019, race on Saturday 7th
Quais de Pauillac, 33250
