Marathon du Medoc
07 September 2019
Marathon du Medoc is routed through 59 vineyards in the fabled villages of the Medoc region, this event appeals to the true connoisseur of fine runs. The course reads more like a wine list than a race course: Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Lynch-Bages, Pichon Lonqueville, and Beychevelles among others. Dont be surprised when you are asked at the aid stations, "red or white?" Of course, water is provided as well. In addition, each year you will find most runners dressed in costume! The 2017 theme is Music in 33 RMP Record.
Pasta diner "Mille Pâtes"It is an outstanding moment which it is necessary to live at least once in its life. It is a first dumping in the festive and friendly universe which makes the reputation of the Medoc Marathon. This year, it’s Saint Laurent Médoc which honours us with welcoming us, with to the program an aperitive in the gardens of the Chateau Lerose Trintaudon follow-up of a dinner, served under big top, gathering 1500 guests.On the menu? Pastas as never you tasted, wines of the Médoc served by our voluntary wine stewards, a festive atmosphere where you will catch singing, dancing… UNFORGETTABLE !Pasta diner "Pâtes à Caisses"Every year, the volunteers who organize it say that it will be the last one, and every year, they put back the place setting! The reason is simple : the Pâte à Caisses is joyful, lively, copious, moving, delicious… we sing and we dance… That always finishes too early, because tomorrow it is necessary to run the marathon ! UNCLASSIFIABLE.The Walk and LunchOf course, you are not in a hurry to leave us! We have either no heart to let you leave… then take advantage of this lunch after the Walk.Organized on the scene of the Pasta dinner at Chateau Lerose Trintaudon, the party is reborn by magic; a gastronomic lunch served under big top for 1500 persons, a musical animation to forget your cramps of the day before, the pleasure, the conviviality… IT IS ONLY ONE GOODBYE !
