  • Bacchus Marathon and Half Marathon, a truly original, fun-filled running event, wine-drinking encouraged!

    It's one of the UK's favourite racing events, and one of ours too.The Bacchus Marathon and Half Marathon in Surrey is back. With wine stations, DJ, and stunning vineyard views, this is definitely a race like no other. Put on your fancy dress, get into the spirit and enjoy the fun!

    The focus of the Bacchus Marathon and Half Marathon is fun, fun, fun.


    With six wine tasting stations every lap, post-race BBQ, fancy dress and stunning views, the miles will simply fly by. Join runners from around the world for an event like no other.


    The event takes place at Denbies Wine Estate, London Road, Dorking, RH5 6AA. The estate is England's largest vineyard, and has been producing award-winning wines since 1986.


    Join team brainstrust and run the Bacchus Marathon or Half Marathon, but whatever distance you choose you will be helping thousands of people in the UK who are living with a brain tumour.

    Both races will be challenging, (they are 26.2 or 13.1 miles after all) but the atmosphere is like no other. If you want a truly unforgettable experience, combining a challenge with a bit of fun, sign up today. Your support will help people who are living with brain cancer to feel less alone and afraid, and more in control.
