This post will be the first in an ongoing series listing races I’d like to run someday. I’m not necessarily registering and booking my flights, but these are races that just sound great. These posts won’t be long or really significant, and they won’t replace the regular daily posts, but they’ll be around.
Today’s was brought to my attention by Viper in his book review: the Marathon du Médoc. According to a Forbes article, “Every year 59 pedigreed châteaus with names ranging from Lafite Rothschild to Léoville Las Cases host 9,000 runners who set off from the quaint town of Pauillac in southwestern France. Rest stops along the route serve them such refreshments as fresh-shucked oysters and grilled beef. Musicians serenade them as they pass.” And of course, you taste amazing wines all along the way. Drinking while running – that’s my kind of race!
