IV Priorat Marathon
· When? October 1,,2017
· Hour? From 09:00h to 17:00h
The artist of Falset, Natalia Sanahuges, is the author of the poster of the IV edition of the Marathon of the Priorat that will take place on Sunday, October 1st. This is the first time that the design of the poster is commissioned and the poster was publicly presented at an event held in the Cucamonga bar in Tarragona (c/ Trinquete Viejo, 13) which was attended by the artist.
Natalia Sanahuges wanted to include in the poster one of her iconic paintings, of the cycle "The women of the wine". She has illustrated a runner fully dedicated to the sport race, with the number 001. It must be said that the female audience is very numerous in the Priorat Marathon which, in this edition, will go even deeper into the cultural, musical and playful dimension of this sportiving event.
Registration will open on May 27 and may be formalized online through the website www.maratodelpriorat.com. During the first weeks there will be promotional prices for individual registrations. It's important to remember that the organisation asks to participants running the marathon and/or the half marathon to be disguised and, if necessary, costumes related to the vineyard and the wine.
Last year, more than 500 runners participated in #PrioratWineRun, and some of the runners were coming from up to 10 different countries. The Dracsrunners Association -organizer of the race- hopes to exceed the number of runners for this edition, giving a special importance to cultural activities so that both riders and companions can enjoy the tour.
The Priorat Marathon is the only race in the country that allows you to enjoy the harvesting in live and try the great wines of the Priorat at the provisioning points.
The race runs through 6 municipal areas of the Priorat region and has its starting and arrival point located in the Falset Wine Cathedral, the Cooperativa de Falset - Marçà. The route passes mainly by roads and paths between villages, crossing the spectacular landscape of vineyards and may be at the same time of the harvesting period.
In this edition, 18 wineries of the DO Montsant and DOQ Priorat will participate at the Priorat Marathon. Once again, winemakers will serve great wines during the tour, provisioning points, but also water, isotonic drinks, fruit, ham and other gastronomic surprises.
The Marathon of the Priorat wants to become a reference sporting event in the country and even in the oenological sector, and an example of balance between the landscape, culture, art and sports.
