12th Tour of Benidorm: 25-28 November 2016

10 May 2016 - By Martyn Byford

I will again be arranging a trip to Benidorm in November for the 12th year to coincide with the Half Marathon and 10k races which will be held on Sunday 27th at 10.00 and 09.35 respectively.

For those who have not been before we fly out from Southend to Alicante on 25th with Easyjet Flight EZY 7415 at 07.00 and return on Monday 28th Flight EZY 7416 landing at Southend at 12.45.

All you have to do is book your own flights then email me and I will send you bank account details to send me your money which will secure your reservation. Please include your passport number and which race you wish to enter.

I am pleased to say the cost this year will remain at £100 per person for a twin room or £115 for a single.

The price includes; 3 nights Half Board at Hotel Marconi, Race entry, WRC Coach transfers, 3 course apres run Meal at our usual Michelin star restaurant and of course the specially designed Tour T shirt. If anybody can beat that for value please let me know!

Temperatures are typically around 65 and we have only had 4 days of light rain in the time we have been going.

The races are superbly organised, as anyone who has been before will tell you, and apart from 1 hill the course goes along the seafront with excellent crowd support.

I will need to know initial numbers by 23rd June please.

Any questions please drop me a line or see me at the Club.
