Fancy getting sort-of fit in a fun, foodie way? Try a wineathlon
Marathons are good and all, but don’t you ever feel like they’d benefit from incorporating a bit more alcohol? That’s exactly the logic behind Wineathlon: an event which comes to Cambridge on 3 September.
Fortunately, you’ll not be expected to slog it out over 26 miles on this course, which is a much more reasonable six and a half miles, and can be run or walked. Along the way, at the designated stations, you’ll be able to have a break and partake in some wine tasting (genius, we know), before rejoining the route.
Taking place at Foxton Village Hall at 1pm, there will be wine samples from the likes of Chilford Hall, while Twoo Coffee and The Roof Garden will provide beverages and tasty treats from around the world.
We can’t really decide if this is a brilliant idea or a recipe for disaster, but we’re pretty sure we want to get involved, and you can too for £18 per ‘wineathlete’.
