Hi all - I'm in training at the moment for my first half marathon which I run on the 28th of October however I am going on holiday for two weeks from the 6th of October to Puerto Del Carmen in Lanzarote- can anybody recommend any 6-8miles run over there just so I can keep my fitness levels up xxxxx

I do not know Lanzarote but was in Fuerteventura last year. I tend to go out early morning or later on in the day when it was not as hot and run around 30 to 40 minutes on way round a beach before heading back to my hotel. Was good as always tend to run the same routes at home and nothing beats looking at the sea when running.

I went to Lanzarote for a weekend last year and managed to fit in a 10 mile run pre-brekky one day.  Lovely!  I don't know the place you're going to, but to be honest you're probably best off just heading down one of the roads into the countryside and doing an out-and-back route so that you don't get lost.  Off-road doesn't tend to be conducive to running (imagine a rocky moonscape if you've never been there before) whereas the roads are generally very quiet, wide and open so quite safe for running on.

Thanks ever so much for your replies we are staying quite close to the beach so will probably just run along the coast and then back - was slightly worried about getting lost or running on my own xxxx
