· Registration has began for January's race
I'll be in Tenerife in January for a holiday and here is the first Canarian Marathon! Do You think it is worth running ? Is there a medal for finishers?
Gracias, and (maybe) we'll meet at the start.
I have had no info on this as far as I know (not at work so not checked email for a while), but I don't know where the expo is, or what I need to present to get my number and chip. Will someone write to me or something? Panicking now, as its not that long away (not to mention that my training has gone t*ts up thanks to the snow and too much nice food!)!
expo and number you get on 23/01 at the Institute of Sport near the start point from 10am to 8pm.You will need passport or dl.Got the mail about slightly change of route due to road works but nothing major.I am of to GC on Saturday week.See you there.
I wrote to the Organizaciòn just to know some minor things I couldn't find on the site : well, I got two replies in English and Spanish (see below). I was so much impressed that I rushed to sign up online! We are about 400 runners mainly Spanish, Britons, Scandinavians, Germans and one only Italian (guess who).

Much the same, too much food and drink and too little running. I am not looking for a PB in this one, if I get round I will be happy. I have done my long runs but bu**er all else! I really had good intentions but it has not happened, and the weather has competely screwed it up. I can't wait for Summer training!
...So...I got an email in Spanish (or Canarian), which I can not understand, but I translated it (through a website!) and this is what it say's:
What does all this mean? It is phrased really strangely! Does it mean that I am not getting a t-shirt or something? It is like reading double dutch. I hope one of you guy's can help!
RP...Its because you have translated word for word from the spanish language.
Basically its saying its difficult to ship out all t-shirts for foreigners as it said on the website. These will be given out on 23rd jan, for those without one.
