With a combined age of 103, the two Simons ( Gale and Buckley) have entered possibly the world’s most enjoyable marathon!
This marathon was first run in 1985 and has since taken on legendary status. Every September runners gather in south-west France, more particularly in the vineyards of the famous
growing region of Medoc. Yes, we have entered the infamous Marathon du Medoc!
The Guardian described this in 2014 as “running the world`s longest, booziest, race. 23 wine stops, oysters, steak and ice-cream."
Training has been a mixed bag with greater success with the bottle than the track. That said we are really excited about the race and are
really lucky to have got an allocation if you were ever to do a Marathon it must surely be this one!
More details about the race can be found at the link below.
Thanks for your time and support.
