Medoc Marathon 

The Boston marathon takes place as usual, on Monday, April 16, 2007. If you are disappointed not to be registered for the event, or you fancy running a marathon but the thought of running as fast as you can with only water to sustain you, you could try the Médoc marathon, which is scheduled for Saturday 8 September, 2007. In this marathon, competitors are expected to take their time and savor the ham, beef, cheese, oysters, other good food and of course wine, of the region.

The course for the Médoc marathon reads like a wine list of the finest French wines. The route passes more than 50 chateaux and 22 are organised as refreshment stations, except that there is more than water on offer, expect to be treated to liberal quantities of the regions wines. At this marathon, they party the night before, they party during the event and then they party the following day. Spectators are not left out and everyone is expected to wear the most bizarre costumes. The winner gets their weight in the regions best wine but the Médoc is a festival, it is not about winning, and I believe that the same prize is awarded to the person who comes in last!
