Can anyone tell me when the 20 km run through Epernay will be in 2013. How does one register for the event?

    Hello,

    Their website is here - lachampenoisedelavalleedelam... so I am certain you can write to them. Looks like there is more than 1 per year.

    By the way be sure to look at the French pages - it seems the race is in trouble and the town mayors are not giving them permission to go through their towns in Autumn due to conflict with the harvest time ...

    "En raison des vendanges champenoises prévues durant la première quinzaine du mois d'octobre 2013, La Champenoise d'Automne qui emprunte de nombreuses routes à travers le vignoble ne peut avoir lieu dans des conditions de sécurité maximale.

    C'est la raison pour laquelle les Maires ne nous autorisent pas à traverser leur commune. Bien entendu, l'organisation regrette ce contretemps et vous souhaite une fin d'année sportive et festive."

    That is the website. Did the run on the 25th May this year. The race was declared dry on the day before the event as the mayor was concerned by the number of people too drunk the year before. Nonetheless it was a great day and champagne could be found along the way if you looked for it.
