Reckon you'll need extra motivation when winter starts to bite? November's Cyprus Four-Day Challenge could be your answer.
If you fancy joining a few RUNNER'S WORLD staffers on the trip, from November 28 to December 6, you'll get to take part in a 6K time trial, a half-marathon through the pine forest, a flat 10K road race through the ancient city of Paphos and a hill race that rewards you with amazing views from high up on the Akamas Peninsular. Oh, and you'll stay in a five-star hotel. Tempted?
Cyprus has a glittering history as a running venue. Not many locations can boast three and a half thousand years of sporting prowess. More recently, the island turned into a giant training camp when several national teams set up home here in the run-up to the Athens Olympics.
The Cyprus Challenge is just one of the top-notch overseas training and racing packages we've put together with our travel partners at 2:09 Events, whose director is 1983 London Marathon winner Mike Gratton. So if you're immune to the lure of the Med, maybe the Himalayas are more your cup of Darjeeling. Or how about the glitz of Las Vegas?
Whichever trip you choose, you'll benefit from the help and support of RW staff and Mike Gratton himself, from the moment you sign up until the moment you fly home. Surely a holiday offer you can't refuse.
