The Médoc Marathon
9,000 racers – equally passionate about running and wine – will pound the pavement this fall for the Médoc Marathon. The course will take participants through the prestigious wine chateaux of Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Saint-Estèphe, Médoc, and Haut-Médoc appellations. Each year, the Médoc Marathon chooses a festive theme, and runners rise to the occasion by dressing up for the day. Throughout the course, runners will find wine tastings, 23 live bands, and even luxury bites like oysters and steak. While a first-place finish is certainly something to strive for, we’re all about the fun that goes into making the Médoc Marathon one of the most unique races in the world.
