Known internationally, the Médoc Marathon is famous for its festive atmosphere. The majority of the marathoners are… dressed up!

The circuit crosses vineyards and gardens of many prestigious châteaux of the Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Saint-Estèphe, Médoc and Haut-Médoc appellations… over 42 km. The race is accompanied by 55 events and tasting points, including twenty or so with great wines!

Key figures of the 2022 edition:

More than 8500 runners in fancy dress from 79 different nationalities set off from Pauillac on 10 September, including two “Crau Plain Grasshoppers” with masks created by Anne Lise Koehler as part of the LIFE project.

The event gave us the opportunity to present the Crau Plain Grasshopper and to distribute stickers and bookmarks to spectators at the roadside… to talk to other participants during tastings.

An original way to present this unique grasshopper as well as the LIFE project to save it to the sporting world !

She cuts, assembles, glues, paints and articulates pieces of paper. She sculpts organic figures, plants, animals, then animates them. Her works transpire a naturalist sensitivity at the “edge of the brush”.
