'Running Crazy Ltd' was born out of an idea to share the experience of running abroad. Director of the Company Malcolm Hargraves, was previously a Senior Manager for a well known UK FTSE 100 Company, and undertook a work assignment abroad in Spain. Having been a keen runner since the age of 11 (now a little bit older!), and also a qualified UK Athletics Coach, he entered a local half-marathon. He was so impressed with the efficiency of the organisation of the race, that he decided to see if any other runners in the UK would be interested in travelling out to Spain to take part. The number of runners who were interested surprised even him.
The races are now further afield and include not only the original races in Spain, but also the Czech Republic, Hungary, France, Holland, Norway, Sweden and Canada. The race calendar is growing all the time.
All the races follow the successful 'Running Crazy' formula - namely:-
* At low cost airline flight destinations
* Met by 'Running Crazy' staff at the continental airport
* Escorted transfer to/from hotel
* Conveniently located good quality hotel accommodation usually half-board
* At established events where good links exist with the organisers
* Race Number/Chip/Goody Bag delivered to your hotel
* Early morning breakfast on race day if required
* After race get-together/party
* Optional tours
* CD-Rom souvenir of the race - with you in action!
* At affordable prices
Malcolm says 'I believe these short breaks are ideal for runners of all abilities, and particularly useful as an excuse for a Club getaway. The chance to run in a foreign town, try some different food, experience the culture and hospitality of the local people, and all have the common goal of completing the race, brings a certain camaraderie. These are the memories you take back after the weekend. Price is an important consideration for runners and this is why the races are at low cost airline flight destinations, but so too is the reliability of service, and knowledge that you are in safe hands'.
These events are about enjoyment - enjoying the race, enjoying the company, and enjoying talking about it for months afterwards. What Running Crazy Ltd enjoy, is hearing you tell them just how much you have enjoyed it - until the next time!
