A celebration of a foot race

In the Nuits-Saint-Georges region, a half-marathon is more than just a sporting event: It’s also a friendly and festive occasion. During the period of the sales of the wines of the Hospices de Nuits-Saint-Georges, thousands of runners make their way through the most prestigious cru wine areas in Burgundy. The route goes through Nuits-Saint-Georges and the chateau of Clos du Vougeot , seat of the Brotherhood of the Chevaliers de Tastevin, among others.

Open to all level of athletes (children’s trails, 10 km and 21 km), the course is dotted with various musical events. Refreshment stations are stocked with the best wines (to be consumed in moderation) and local products are dotted along the route.

Rewards to be savoured

After the half-marathon among the vineyards, all participants are given a bottle of fine wine. The best of them are given a batch of the finest cru burgundy wines in lieu of the more traditional financial reward.
