My first 20 miler done today too. Would like to get at least 2 more of those in before the race if I can fit them around other races. Redcar Half in two weeks if anyone needs a flat but coastal (i.e. windy) half to test themselves on.
We are staying in the Ad Hoc hotel in the old town, Appropriate given the nature of my training me thinks.
Finnegans sounds like a good shout. Some people get a bit sniffy about going to an Irish Bar on these occasions when there are always good Spanish Bars in the area but I have found that the Irish bars are normally that bit bigger and more conducive to group meetings.
We're going from the NE Lumbering Ox, as stated above it's either train to Gatwick and a direct flight or flight from Newcastle to Alicante and then train to Valencia. We thought it might be easier going to Gatwick than getting transport from Alicante Airport to Alicante station and then buying tickets.
Soon be time to choose a post run drinking venue, where is everyone staying when they are there?
Dean, I stayed in the Frankfurt NH Messe. Directly opposite the expo and the start line. A ten minute walk from the main station, (through the red light district). The hotel was excellent with a decent breakfast. Close to the subway system too. Obviously it was full of runners too so if you are travelling on your own there is always someone to chat to.
