Marathon du Medoc
Wow! What an amazing event! A big PW, but having embraced the spirit of this race, I can't 'wine' about my finishing time! hic
Brilliantly organized. A fun filled weekend, from pasta parties with music and dancing, to the firework display afterwards. In between was 26.2 miles of wine tasting, copious quantities of food, including oysters and steak, plus more music and dancing. 90% of an international field wore crazy fancy dress outfits, with some pushing huge decorated carts. A nice touch was the 'Finish in beauty' station 2km from the end, where runners were offered free face paint and mirrors to check their appearance. At 41km were free ice lollies, very welcome in the 30+°C. It's definitely going on the diary for next year.
An amazing experience. Great carnival atmosphere but tough in the heat.
