On the off-chance that anyone was thinking of going to the World Cross Country Championships (http://www.iaaf.org/WXC11/index.html ), presumably to spectate - but best of luck otherwise -I thought I'd offer a few lines of local knowledge, as the venue is just down the road from me.
The official website recommends Sevilla airport, but in fact Faro is significantly closer (you don't have to get through Seville, the motorway is less cluttered) and has a wider range of operators.
Ditto, the official hotel, there are various cheaper alternatives.
Nothing to promote myself, but as a local I'm really excited about the event. The area is great for running (lots of pine glades, miles of beaches and excellent weather at this time of year). You could make a very refreshing weekend break of it.
