3 years ago, a group of keen runners from BI, the global fine wine and spirits merchant, travelled to Bordeaux to take on the famous Marathon du Medoc. 

This year a fresh group of athletes (ahem) from BI is taking on a new wine-themed run - the Bacchus Half Marathon, which takes place through the vineyards of Denbies around Dorking and the picturesque North Downs. Not only is it a little closer to home, the climate should be a little more acceptable (it topped 40C during the Medoc Marathon!).

Team Members:
Sebastian Rowe
Hannah Thomas
Sylvain Lepeltier
Emma Sharp
Giles Cooper
Philippe Guittard
Harriet Furze
Paul Turner
Catherine Bauer
Massimo D'Isep

The team is a combination of ages and experiences, and all have been training hard for what promises to be an extremely challenging run - featuring some stunning scenery and at least one dramatic climb...
