I've planned a week in Majorca in October to run the marathon there. The event also has a half-marathon and 10k event too, and children's runs.
Just a holiday, but at the same time as the marathon etc.
There are package options available I belive as the event is being sponsored by TUI, but I've booked my own flight etc...
Just back from doing Malta mara with RunningCrazy and had a v. jolly time - so I'd go with them again.
Have also been out to do races in Hamburg, Berlin, Eindhoven & Helsinki & just booked it all myself - also easy but you don't get a big crowd of other runners to talk boring running talk with!
What was Helsinki like?
I have booked for this year, any tips?
Delightful. The only thing I recall we had any difficulty with was finding the expo - we wandered around the Olympic stadium area (following a couple of bewildered Russian runners on, I suspect, the same mission) until ... I forget ... we spotted someone with a bag and asked them.
Because it's an early-afternoon start you don't have to get up at the arse-crack of dawn for brekkie (but I certainly skipped lunch and just took loads of gels). The sport drink was Gatorade - I tried it at the expo & liked it. The pickled cucumbers are surprisingly nice on a balmy summer day but some well-meaning soul had pre-peeled the bananas....
I'm off to the Algarve on Thursday, 4th year I have been, 2nd time with this company http://www.fullpotential.co.uk/
Couple times before with this company. http://www.209events.com/event.php?event=45
Great for single travellers
Agree Running the Highlands are very good. They're doing running tours across Scotland, and they also do residential weekends (which include talks from experts, stretching classes, yoga etc), or they'll do a tour specifcally tailored for you. And you can stay at Balmoral.
