You might assume the French are particularly stuffy when it comes to savoring wine, but this ridiculous, vino-fueled race turns that pretentious stereotype on its beret. Take the elements of all these other booze runs—the costumes, the tasting pit stops, the out-of-shape runners—and multiply it by a hundred. It’s a full 26.2 mile marathon throughout French vineyards, costumes are pretty much mandatory, and there are 23 glasses of wine to be had along the way, along with oysters, cheese, foie gras and ice cream to settle your stomach. People tend to pregame the event with more wine and carbo-load at the many pasta parties held throughout Médoc the night before. If you manage to cross the finish line after all those French goodies, you’ll be rewarded with a medal, more food and an entire bottle of Médoc wine.
