The weekend event starts on a Friday with a bacchanalian party; Saturday is the 26.2 mile run, which winds through dozens of pastoral vineyards and estates.
Lest you take this too seriously, be advised that half the runners are in costume. This year’s wackadoodle theme: science fiction.
At the aid stations: water. And all-you-can-eat oysters, cheeses and meats. And plenty of regional vino.
At the finish line? A massive, town-wide party, followed by a Sunday tasting tour through the area’s vineyards.
Le Marathon is in September, but they accept a very limited number of runners/drinkers, so register early.
And then raise a glass. You've got some training to do.
