Experience

Just off the town of Bordeaux, the French and many others from around the world get together to run a marathon disguised as a party! A pretty whacky party at that. A costume is a must and since you in one of France’s most famous wine regions, we guess so is drinking! Now into its 35th year this unique race is one of the most colourful and unusual races around the world. Sign up to claim our limited spots including race entry and stay at a charming hotel that was once a wine estate. Just don’t forget your super hero costume – cos you’ll need it to run this one!

Minimum Child Age

Children below 16 year(s) of age are not allowed for this trip.

Accommodation

Relais de Margaux:  The "Relais de Margaux" is a former late-19th century wine château. Located on the Medoc peninsula, the hotel benefits from a temperate climate all year round, thanks to the influences of the Atlantic Ocean to the West and the cool breezes from the vast Gironde Estuary, which borders the golf course. It’s as close to the fine French experience you can get!
