The marathon of the vineyards of Cahors

The 1st Marathon of the vineyards of Cahors will be organized in Cahors Lot Valley on May 7, 2023. On the program, a half-marathon and a marathon. Both will come to Cahors, after having traveled the roads and paths of the vineyards of Cahors. On the course, you will have the opportunity to taste the nectars at random from "discovery refreshments" - always in moderation of course, because you have to reach the finish line. 

The Valentré bridge Cahors as the arrival arch… The vineyard as an immersive setting… Lot gastronomic products as protein bars… The wine of Cahors and the hills of Quercy as elixirs of youth (in all moderation, of course)… Joy, fantasy, humour, disguises like sportswear… Who could say better? The programme seduce you? So join us quickly.
