微醺馬拉松
Tipsy Wine Marathon

有人說「馬拉松令您體驗不一樣的人生!」而村上春樹在《當我談跑步時我談些什麼》一書中一再強調馬拉松「痛苦是必然的,但磨難是可選擇的。」在聽長跑愛好者談馬拉松總是流汗流淚、抽筋扭傷,然而近年嚐試過兩趟一邊品嚐美酒一邊跑,發覺原來也可以有極樂馬拉松!

Marathon makes your life different. Murakami Haruki puts in “What I Talk About When I Talked About Running” that in Marathon pain is inevitable but suffering is optional. Marathon journey could be full of sweats and pains, but also could be joyful with glasses of wines.

 法國紅酒馬拉松

若然說法國人是極具享樂主義的民族,相信不少人都會贊同。在世界各國著名長跑馬拉松比賽中,也唯獨法國人會想出一個紅酒馬拉松。由於波爾多地區盛產紅酒,於是法國人想出何不在比賽途經的酒莊奉上出色佳釀,令跑手真正享受一個極富法式風情的美酒長跑嘉年華。當您本着以最快速度,拼着命的跑向終點,這次可能會失望了,因為身邊的跑手慢慢地跑,好像沒有人跟您競爭似的,大家一路上吃吃、喝喝,若只追求突破成績,就會錯過了路上最幸福馬拉松的體驗!

波爾多紅酒馬拉松途經50多座美麗的酒莊,有古堡亦有是摩登前衛建築,都是列為世界文化遺產的美景,釀製了是世上最頂尖的葡萄酒。2018年9月8日第34屆的紅酒馬拉松比賽沿途將經過59家酒莊,包括波爾多3大頂級酒莊:拉圖莊、武當莊及拉斐莊,每個補給站來一小杯波爾多紅酒的話,跑畢全程總共就會喝掉三瓶紅酒,現場所見真的有不少選手是不勝酒力而將馬拉松拋到腦後,索性躺在路邊小寐享受波爾多豔麗的陽光。

French embrace hedonism so much that they even invented Marathon du Médoc. Runners can enjoy classic wines from chateaus alongside the journey since this event is held in the famous wine region,Bordeaux. Competition is the last thing you should think about in this Marathon. You might miss the pleasure if you rush into the finish line while others take delight in foods and drinks.

Beautiful sceneries and world cultural relics scatter along the Marathon du Médoc: more than 50 splendid chateaus, old castles,modern buildings as well as superb wines. The 34th Marathon du Médoc will be held on 8 September, 2018, running through 59 chateaus with the top 3 Cru Latour, Mouton and Lafite included. If you grab a glass of Bordeaux at every refueling stop, you will finish 3 bottles of wine.So many tipsy participants will put the Marathon aside and have a wonderful sunbath or a nap on the roadside instead.

今年的波爾多紅酒馬拉松還有一個趣緻的主題,就是「遊樂場」,亦即是任何跑手都可以盡情地吃喝盡情地玩樂,酒莊除了提供著名的美酒以外,又怎缺少得佳餚呢!每個補給站預備了法國著名的美食匹配紅酒:鵝肝醬、生蠔、烤牛肉、起司、巧克力、奶酪、冰激凌、馬卡龍等。有多少人能按捺得住眼前的法國美酒美食的引誘?從開胃酒、紅白酒、香檳、甜酒,配以前菜、主菜到甜點,全程的馬拉松好像就是吃了整套豐盛的法式料理。

難怪曾經參加過波爾多馬拉松賽的英國著名作家彼得.梅爾在《一個美酒品嚐家的馬拉松》寫道:「事實上,在這個以追求歡樂為目的的比賽中,比起享受來,速度實在是一件無關緊要的事情。」

The theme of Marathon du Médoc this year is Amusement Park,in which every runner can have fun as much as he can. Refueling stops offer famous French delicacies along with wines, including foie gras,oysters, roasted beef, toasts, chocolate, cheese, ice cream, macarons and etc. The whole marathon journey is like a full set of French cuisine.Few people can resist such a feast of aperitifs, wines, champagnes,starters, main courses and desserts. As said by British Writer Peter Mayle in his A Connoisseur’s Marathon, “in this convivial race, speed is far less important than enjoyment”.

 啤酒愛好者馬拉松

相對於已有34年歷史的波爾多馬拉松,比利時的「啤酒愛好者馬拉松」才剛踏入第三個年頭,多少本着法國人著名的紅酒,比利時人也有著名啤酒的心態,「啤馬」可以說比「波馬」更狂野更熱情洋溢,2018年5月20日的賽事在比利時著名的古城列日市舉行,將有多達18家手工啤酒品牌贊助,屆時路上佈滿的是樂隊、舞者、歌手,每個補給站都是啤酒與比利時美食巧克力、華夫餅、炸薯土豆不一而足!

最狂熱的是每個參加者還會各展所長,將自己打扮成林林總總的星戰角色、漫畫英雄、由鐵塔到雙子塔都有,完完全全將馬拉松化作一個化妝舞會派對,而上千名「酒迷」與「馬迷」競逐的不是最佳的時間,而是誰的打扮最有心思,誰又玩得最瘋狂最引人注目,路上喝了十多杯啤酒以後,平日嚴肅的長跑者會變得腳步輕盈,後半部的賽事就是一邊跳着舞一邊啍着歌直奔終點!您不單止會感受到腳的痠痛,臉頰也會笑得痠痛,因為看着不少奇裝異服的酒鬼互相乾杯互相嬉戲的樣子,可以說您參加過世界各地不同的馬拉松,但這一個絕對會是個令您開懷大笑的馬拉松。

Beer Lovers’ Marathon in Belgium only has been held three years, a relatively you ng event compared with Marathon du Médoc. But it is in every way wilder than Marathon du Médoc as Belgians are fond of beer. This year it will be held in the historic city of Liege on 20 May. Sponsored by 18 handmade beer brands, the marathon will serve beer, Belgium chocolate, waffles and fried potatoes. Bands, dancers and singers will also perform along the journey.

The most fantastic part about it is runners will disguise themselves, such as characters in Star Wars, comic heroes and even Twin Towers. The marathon looks more like a costume party where thousands of runners take pleasure in dressing themselves up, enjoying the beer and being eye-catching instead of competing against each other. After drinking a dozen of beer, participants will start to run merrily. They might even run towards the finishing line while dancing and singing. And you will find your feet and cheeks both in pain; the latter is because watching drunk runners in costumes teasing each other will make you roar with laughter. You might have taken part in marathons held in many places, but this one in Belgium will definitely make you laugh ecstatically.

Belgian beer has a rich variety of strong white beer as well as handmade beer that smells like fresh wheat. It is so mellow that tastes like liquid muffin, enveloping people with sweetness and happiness. The Beer Lovers’ Marathon is a heaven for huge fans of beer and marathon. With dances and songs alongside the run,one can enjoy the exquisite scenery of Liege. Awaiting runners ahead in the next refueling stop a few kilos away will be surprises from another beer brand. Once they hit the road, they will never be eager to arrive at the destination. Indeed, the closer you are to the finishing line, the closer the refueling stops from each other. So why don’t you indulge yourselves in beer since success is just around the corner?
