The Bacchus half and marathon are held at Denbies wine estate which is Englands largest vineyard who have been making award wining wines since 1986. As well as water stations there are wine stations! There's also a dj at the start/finish and a BBQ at the end.
A one lap testing course through the Surrey countryside - a good excuse to take your time at those stations I think. The races are held on a variety of terrain including footpaths and along the North Downs giving breathtaking views over the Mole Valley, Ranmore Common and the North Downs.
Absolutely fantastic-such great fun and party atmosphere!!...despite running other half and full marathons this was my favourite!!no pressure to get a PB just enjoy the views,wine,brill food and drink stops every couple of miles and did I mention the wine?!!...fancy dress,fab medal and t shirt, friendly encouraging marshals,lovely hot drinks and cakes at the end brill bbq and wine at the end!!...
