Marathon in Bordeaux, September 8th – 16th, 2017

Perhaps this should be described as two marathons.  You start with the Medoc Marathon on September 9th, 2017. Running on the Sichel Family Marathon Team, owners of Chateau Angludet and Chateau Palmer comprised of the Sichel family and your coach Bryon Howard, an Ironman competitor, extreme sport enthusiast and multi-marathon runner.

The Medoc Marathon is described as being the longest marathon in the world. You run through the vineyards of 42 Chateaus in the Medoc, by the estates in St. JulianPaulliacSt Estephe and other appellations of this very famous region. This is a fun run with outrageous costumes and the opportunity to taste at 42 of Bordeaux’s most famous estates.  Bryon Howard will begin your tailored training program 18 weeks prior to Marathon Day on May 8, 2017 based on your existing fitness and goals. He will train and educate you for maximum race day performance & maximum fun!

Prior to the marathon, you will spend the night at Chateau Lagrange with Bryon Howard and that evening you will enjoy dinner with the Lagrange marathon team. After the marathon, a celebratory dinner will take place at Chateau medoc-marathon-runners-castleAngludet. Then the
second marathon begins! A week of visiting more than 10 French Chateaus, tasting first growth wines, visiting top estates, taking meals with the winemakers all the while staying at Chateau Lagrange.
As you overindulge, you are safe in the knowledge that you burned a few extra calories at the beginning of the week!
