The Beaujolais Run 2014- Passchendaele museum to Taittinger, Reims.

'Runners were greeted by guides for a special visit. Teams received insight into the battles, men and places that became a wasteland in 1914. During their tour they visited recreated dug outs underground and the trenches themselves.

The cars headed South via the Menin Gate, Ypres and onto Messine; and the ridge that all fought so hard to occupy. Cresting the ridge the cars followed the front line and steered for Champagne Taittinger in Reims; and the treats that awaited in its' Chalk Cellars. Chalk Cellars that were a hospital during the first world war, patients carvings still evident in the walls.

After a reception from the Taittinger family, teams sampled Taittinger Brut and Brut Rosé as they were given Clue One for the navigation challenge on the following day.
