The world’s top six booziest runs

Marathon du Médoc, France

Perhaps the most famous boozy run, the Marathon du Médoc is the one for wine lovers. This laid-back race sees entrants run through the beautiful vineyards of Médoc, though taking plenty of breaks at the 23 wine tasting stops, with an oyster tasting at the 38th kilometre-mark and steak at the 39th kilometre.

There’s live music with orchestras dotted throughout the course, and runners typically come in costume; add the wine and it sounds more like a party than a race. Might be one for fans of wine rather than fans of running.
