Champagne Marathon Set To Sparkle

Champagne RunnersIt’s time to open the bubbly and celebrate the launch of the inaugural Marathon de Reims En Champagne, set to take place on Sunday 11 October. The race will go through the heart of the Champagne region, with Sports Tours International offering various travel packages for the event. 

The course will see participants racing through the historical city of Reims, just 90 miles from Paris, via vineyards and alongside the Marne River. The marathon is a part of a three-day weekend featuring 10K and half marathon options.
 
Sports Tours say of the latest addition to their many international events: “A mythical distance, a physical challenge, an achievement for many runners... Without doubt the Marathon De Reims En Champagne will soon join the greatest!
 
“Much more than a marathon challenge, you have the chance to delve into a truly authentic tourist experience for a weekend that you will not forget. You can visit the famous Champagne houses in the centre of Reims - after the run of course!” 
 
Sports Tours had been leaving clues about which event they were planning on adding to their impressive roster,  mentioning that the UNESCO World Heritage Site receives one million visitors a year and suggesting participants ‘wine-down’ after the race.
