Description

The beauty of the course combined with an amazing selection of events and good old fun make "Medoc" one of the leading international running events. The marathon is a loop route winding its way round a stunningly beautiful circuit of over 50 chateaux beginning and ending in Pauillac. But if running 42km isn't your glass of wine, you can join the famous Centipede evening in a Medoc chateau for 1,450 guests or one of 52 other events alongside the race. Or throw on your craziest costume and join the throngs of fun runners. When you get hungry you can enjoy one of the 22 refreshment stands, 21 food stands and special gourmet stands featuring oysters, ham, steak, cheese, ice cream, Medoc attic, etc. (It is France after all) As night falls on the marathon, and you finish your post-race massage, you can attend a huge ball open to all with the boom of fireworks vibrating across the marathon village. During the marathon weekend, the wineries open their doors for a marathon of wine and food consumption. The race is limited to just 8,500 runners so apply early...you don't want to miss Medoc.
