Bacchus Marathon and Half Marathon will be going live for entries on the 1st December. Looking forward to seeing all the fancy dress outfits and wine tasting around the route. Hog roast BBQ at the finish.

Over 1100 entries this year, (sold out). The children's Trust have said they are bring some children's bouncy things and are trying to make it a village type atmosphere. There's a 2k fun run before the start of the marathon next year.

Its absolutely brilliant in every respect despite running it in a personal worst of about 2 hours! The only rubbish thing about it was the dire catering by the Hogroast people. Everything else was utterly fantastic its right up there in my top 10 special races!

I've entered and am really looking forward to this. I did the Marathon du Medoc a few years ago and understand this is along the same lines? Any idea of cheap accomodation close by?

I've not done Bacchus before and was contemplating going to Bournemouth. Although still a bit pricey for a marathon, this one seems a more interesting one to do with a few added extras. With the Children's Trust involved, at least there is something positive gained instead of it just funding a local authority.

Sazzleflip there will be accommodation reflected on the event website where discount has been agreed with the various hotels etc. I don't think it's on there at the moment but should be in the next few weeks.

We stayed on a lovely campsite a few miles away - had a campfire and a onsie party! I can find out the details for you if camping is your thing, otherwise the travelodge is just around the corner from the start, ideally placed
