With a combined age of 103, the two Simons ( Gale and Buckley) have entered possibly the world’s most enjoyable marathon!
This marathon was first run in 1985 and has since taken on legendary status. Every September runners gather in south-west France, more particularly in the vineyards of the famous growing region of Medoc. Yes, we have entered the infamous Marathon du Medoc!
The Guardian described this in 2014 as “running the world`s longest, booziest, race. 23 wine stops, oysters, steak and ice-cream."
The Simons will, of course, be seeking to raise some charitable funds and more details will follow in due course. Training is underway both on track and bottle.
“We are really excited about the race and are really lucky to have got an allocation if you were ever to do a Marathon it must surely be this one!”
