With just a few months to go until it opens to the public in June 2016, La Cité du Vin has unveiled its new identity. It was more than a change of name that was revealed at the evening organised on 26 October at Bordeaux City Hall for financial backers, patrons, partners and all those who have been close to the project since 2009: an eye-catching signature, a logo and the graphic design to go with the new name.

The Médoc Marathon #31 gathers every year more than 9000 registered. These athletes are also strong supporters of wine and festivities that are associated with their tasting.

The tour runs through the vineyards and prestigious wine chateaux of Pauillac, St-Julien, St Estèphe, Médoc and Haut-Médoc appellation, with start and finish in Pauillac.

This internationally known marathon is famous for the festive atmosphere that prevails there. 90% of marathoners run disguised indeed. The race was interrupted by several events: musical breaks the sound of one of the 23 bands scattered over the course, wine appreciation offered by the wine chateaux (23 wine tastings along the race), oysters (38th kilometer) or steaks (39th kilometer).

For organising this unusual musical event, 2800 volunteers are mobilized. The Médoc Marathon is organized by an association of volunteers, as a professional event, since its inception.
