Set in the stunning surroundings of Denbies Vineyard near Dorking the Bacchus Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K have rapidly become must-do events on the UK running calendar. Most of the field turn out in fancy dress, there are numerous bands playing around the course but it’s the drinks station on route that separates Bacchus from other running races and epitomise the spirit of the event.
You will have the chance to sample six fabulous English wines, at five drinks stations along the course with two wines served at the last station, with food and soft drinks to accompany them. If you are running the marathon you go around twice which means 12 wines! There’s more food and drink waiting for you at the finish at the post-race hog roast where the party carries on long into the evening.
