The beau­ti­ful penin­sula of Lège-Cap Fer­ret in Gironde is the set­ting for the ninth Marathon des Vil­lages on 18 Oc­to­ber. The marathon winds its way through lit­tle vil­lages, along for­est trails and lime­stone paths and of­fers stun­ning views of the Bassin d’Ar­ca­chon and the At­lantic coast. If tak­ing on a marathon sounds a bit am­bi­tious, try the Ran­don­née des Vil­lages on 17 Oc­to­ber in­stead, which is a guided three-hour walk along part of the marathon course. In the evening there is a ‘pasta party’ where run­ners can stock up on carbs and oys­ters be­fore the race the next day. www.marathon-des-vil­
