If I were going to do a marathon (please pick yourself up from the chair you just fell off), then the only one I would consider doing is the Marathon du Médoc.
Occurring tomorrow in Medoc on the west coast of France, this annual marathon is a gourmet’s dream! Similar to the Bay to Breakers in San Francisco people get dressed up in crazy costumes (or sometimes no costumes at all) to run a full 26.2 mile/42 kilometer marathon. But that is where the similarities end!
While running through the beautiful countryside past 50 chateaux, aid stations serve wine and snacks such as oysters, regional ham (Bayonne), and cheese! Now that is my kind of snack! Of course, if you want water, you can have that too!
Each year part of the registration proceeds go to charity, so it is good fun, good food, and for a good cause.
A bientôt !
