The Bacchus Marathon and Half-Marathon sees entrants run laps around England’s largest vineyard, Denbies Wine Estate in Surrey, with wine stations dotted along the way.

Runners will encounter five wine tastings on the half marathon, and 10 tastings on the full marathon. The Bacchus Marathon is a great way to taste English wines while experiencing the vineyards they come from. Plus, the Bacchus Marathon was voted the second best UK half-marathon by Runners World readers in 2013..
