The longest marathon in the world
« You don’t come to « Médoc » to beat a record but to have fun » is what you can often hear when you listen to runners who participate in the « Marathon du Médoc ».
An original costume, a good pair of running shoes and a fair amount of good humour is what you need to fully enjoy the extraordinary festive atmosphere of the race.
At unavoidable stops, châteaux will give you for free some of their best bottles, and oysters and rib steaks will complete your food supplies.
The longest in the world ! We are telling you !
