Anyone been on a running holiday?
I'm looking for a running holiday this spring, in advance of several marathons this year. I would like somewhere in Europe and not too expensive. I run a lot, so want somewhere that will push me and where I can also relax, preferably near a beach. I'm single so don't want to be in a couples place, but also don't want to go on a dressed up match making trip.
Can anyone make recommendations please?
OK, so its not Bermuda but the scenary is stunning, the people lovely, the food fantastic and the entertainment brilliant. If you get the weather its a bonus but having spent 10 years up there I'm biased and used to the weather anyway.
Its in Europe, by a beach (stunning beaches), not a couples thing, and definately not a dress up kind of place..... it ticks all the boxes Beagle. Dare you take the challenge?
PS the Cape Wrath Challenge is still by far my favourite marathon. Not PB material - I mean....... you have to catch a boat a couple of times during the run! But for the scenary, people and brilliant ceilledh in the evening its unmatchable.
Sorry, looks like I didn't make proper links... I'll try again:
www.lornah.com www.traininkenya.com for Kenya
www.fullpotential.co.uk for Portugal. (or theres purple patch, or runinthesun, loads of options for Europe)
Take a look at ' www.trainingcampmajorca.com ' as well as track training they also offer a Social Running Break which is much cheaper and seems a great way to join other runners for a running holiday.
I just had a fantastic christmas week of running with personal guidance, in a group of three, by the race director of Al Andalus Ultimate Trail stage race, Paul Bateson. The stay was in a mountain village/small town called Alhama de Granada. We clocked up over 100 km on gorges, mountains and round a lake. Mileage is adjusted to your wishes. I preceded it with a couple of days in the old town of Malaga. See www.trailrunspain.com and my facebook picture set.
If you are interested in running holidays, Run the Wild has quite a few options in the UK and the Alps, more events being added each month. The holidays are about getting you to explore places whilst running and enjoying the routes! Happy running!
I'd also like to add guided running holidays around Chamonix, Mont Blanc, Verdun Gorge, etc. with this company Tracks and Trails. I used them last summer for a tour of the Jura mountains and once again the care, guiding and personal attention were excellent.
