Possibly the best fun marathon you could ever run! (about: 1999)|
A Runner from London area (3/2/01)
Plan to speed a long weekend here with friends, Thursday to Sunday night to really soak up the great pre/post-race atmosphere. Do wear comfortable fancy dress. Take a camera. Don't worry about running a PB! Save yourself for the fantastic feast over the last 3 miles - oysters, steak, fruit, cheese and of course wine! The post race lunch on Sunday at the Chateux Beychevelle is one of the best open air meals I have ever had - plan to get very drunk! I wrote a 3 page article for my running club newsletter if anyone needs any more persuasion. Enjoy!
