If you think that marathon runners live abstemious, Spartan lifestyles, then you've clearly never been to the Saarland. This, after all, is where the Gourmet Marathon is held in Saarbrücken every year: an event that combines sport with fine food in a region overflowing with culinary delights. Here, there's more than fruit and isotonic beverages on offer, as tartes flambées and apple and ginger drinks lift runners' spirits. Spectators, meanwhile, can enjoy a gourmet market packed with regional specialities. The marathon route itself runs through some of the most scenic areas of Saarbrücken, making this a feast for the eyes as well.
