The Malaga Half Marathon is a very well organised race and looks set to become popular with local runners and foreign guests as it re-establishes itself. We have contacts on the organising committee.
Starting in the centre of the city the route is a flat, fast course that takes in many of the City's sights. Much of the course is very close to the city’s beaches.
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. All our hotels are comfortably furnished with TV and entertainment facilities - many have spas, pools and saunas too
'Running Crazy' are delighted to welcome runners who are raising sponsorship for registered charities. We know that the great feeling of accomplishment when completing the race, feels even better when you are helping others in to the bargain! See our Run for Charity link to choose a charity that you can help. Many charities listed there will provide special runners packs including sponsorship forms and tips, and also charity running vests. Just contact them with your details and tell them you intend to run with 'Running Crazy' on their behalf. In addition we will provide you with a 'Running Crazy' Certificate confirming your achievement and result, and also a special commemorative prize. Just specify the charity name in your 'Application'.
'Running Crazy' have secured a 4 star hotel on the Costa del Sol and we will travel as a group to the race start. Accommodation is on a half board basis, which is great for groups, but also good for individuals as you can join us for meals.
March On the Costa del Sol has proved to be very mild – the area boasts 300 days of sunshine a year!
• Average Sunshine Hours per day: 9
• Wet days in a month: 3
• Average Temperature: 12 to 18 degrees Celsius
The Costa del Sol is a top tourist attraction - there is so much to do here. Malaga city itself, Seville, Granada and the Alhambra Palace, Gibraltar, Marbella, Mijas and Ronda are all in the area. You could even pop over to North Africa and Tangiers! We know some of the best places and will be pleased to give you a suggested itinerary.
Malaga is a great City to share and is therefore ideal for Clubs or for Training Partners to get together. It may also make travelling more convenient and enjoyable.
There are discounts for larger groups (20+), but even a group of just 10 will qualify for an additional prize for the first or last to finish (you decide).
Our all inclusive prices are extremely competitive - from as little as just £149 for the weekend - we know we cannot be beaten on price - and our runners continually tell us that they receive so much more on a 'Running Crazy' weekend break. All our 'resort races' offer half board accommodation, and for our 'Big City' races we know all the best value places to eat, drink and have fun. Indeed we book these for our pre-race and after race gatherings, meaning groups and individuals can just sit back, relax, make new running pals and let us do any worrying. No tourist traps for our clients! We know these races and places inside out, and will advise on what to see and do over the weekend, provide directions and maps - all very useful when on a tight timescale. All you have to do is run!
