About this event

Benidorm is our most popular event. The chance of some winter sunshine on the Costa Blanca, together with a fun and busy weekend of entertainment, plus a very well organised 10K, make this a wonderful venue for a road race. There have been significant changes to the event and ‘Running Crazy’ have been involved with the new race organisers from the outset. The field is capped and will sell out long before the weekend itself. No problem – with our involvement - we have GUARANTEED race entries! Why not make it a 'double weekend' and combine the Benidorm race with the Valencia Marathon & 10K the week before. What to do next: If you are interested in taking part in this event, simply complete and return the Application Form. Further details will be sent by return of E-Mail including travel tips, a full price list, and payment arrangements. If you also like the idea of running in Valencia at their Marathon the week before, then please specify 'Valencia/Benidorm' combined tour in your application.

Entertainment:
The course is well laid out, giving more than a few opportunities for supporters to catch a view of the race. Benidorm has got to be one of the ultimate entertainment centres in Europe. There are more bars, cafes and restaurants than you can shake a stick at. There are numerous cabaret performances, including some of the UK's biggest stars. 'Running Crazy Ltd' offer a free after race party, including a free cabaret show, followed by drinking & dancing. Plenty of opportunities to let your hair down and work any stiffness out of your legs! In addition there are optional sightseeing tours at a small fee.

Groups:
Benidorm is a great venue for a group of runners. Lots of evening entertainment that is just crying out to be shared. There are discounts available for large groups (20+), but even a group of just 10 will qualify for an additional prize for the first or last to finish. If you have a group interested in joining us, just complete the Group Application Form and 'Running Crazy Ltd' will be in touch.

Spectators

Spectators and Supporters:
We know how important spectators and supporters are at these events. We provide a supporters package at no extra charge. We will advise where on the course are the most advantageous spectator positions, and how to get there easily and in time for the race. More often than not we will take you there and join you for a cup of coffee and have a few surprises planned whilst awaiting the first sight of the runners! Our hotel is comfortably furnished with TV and entertainment facilities. There is an outdoor pool too.

Accommodation:
'Running Crazy' have secured 3* hotel accommodation on a half board basis in a modern build and recently refurbished hotel which is conveniently located alongside the race start/finish area. There is an indoor pool with whirlpool, and an outdoor pool. All rooms have balconies and are comfortably furnished with en suite facilities, satellite TV, WiFi, heating/air conditioning, shampoo, soap and hair dryers.

Most runners will leave their kit in the hotel but in the case of inclement weather the 'Running Crazy' team will be available to help with kit storage if needs be, but the race organisers have this well covered in any event.
