BERLIN - TESTIMONIALS
Lorna and Tony O'Donnell - Guernsey, Channel Islands
Thanks very much to you and your team for a great weekend. We really enjoyed our time in Berlin and despite the injuries leading up to the race, I finished it, without further problems to calves or achilles so it's onwards and upwards from here! Plus the charity I run for is £4500 to the good so I count that as mission accomplished! Just watched the DVD which was fun; what a nice idea!
Anyway, I wanted to say a sincere thank you for all your wonderful organisation which certainly helped to make the whole weekend so relaxed and enjoyable.
See you in Benidorm in ......7 weeks!
Louise Spurgeon - Plumstead
Thank you again for another great weekend organised by Running Crazy.
Craig Brown - Ayr, Scotland
Hi Malcolm just wanted to send a big thanks for all your organising etc.
I had a great time. I was also over the moon to achieve a big goal of mine with a sub three and Michael with his first marathon!!
I will recommend you to my club and i will definitely use you again.
I would love to do Berlin again next year.
Jaqui Wynds - Cheltenham
Thank you to you and the boys for giving us such an enjoyable weekend in Berlin. Not sure Tim has recovered from all the walking yet...
It definitely does what it says on the tin, the race was hassle free and with everything being arranged for us removed any worries we may have had. Ready for the next one now !
Don't work too hard - Very best wishes
Sybil Kennedy - Helensburgh, Scotland
Thank you so much for great organisation in Berlin for the boys and I. We had a great time and I even got a PB - so delighted.
Recovering this week and itching to get out to run next week. Looking forward to our Club's trip to the Torremolinos Half in 2014 with your company.
Thanks again - lovely to meet you.
Phillip Howells - Gloucestershire
Many thanks for the results link and the whole weekend in Berlin. It made it so much more straightforward to book with you and we all felt in our Gloucestershire 'team' that you looked after us very well and were great value for money, so many thanks to you, John and Gerry for your efforts on our behalf, much appreciated.
Peter & Paul Abraham - Altrincham, Cheshire
Thank-you very much for organising a fantastic weekend- I was extremely impressed at the lengths you went to in making the marathon weekend a very enjoyable experience. It would be very difficult to improve on your service. Paul and I have discussed doing it again next year!!
The weekend gave us the opportunity to meet other runners with an interest in marathons and to hear all their stories.
Lucie Farrell - RTE, Dublin
Just a quick note of thanks for everything with regards the Berlin Marathon. It was just such a wonderful experience - despite the fact that I did my sums wrong and totally miscalculated my timings on the day! But that just means I get to have another crack at it in the future! Thanks again
Janice Wallace - Wolverhampton
Just a note to say thank you for organizing a brilliant weekend in Berlin for the Marathon. I had a such a great time and met lots of lovely people.
Hope to see you on another run.
Angie Sadler - Tewkesbury AC
Hello Malcolm, John and Gerry....
Just like to say thank you all. 'TEAM'..... The Welcome., Hotel., organisation., team spirit., goodbye...!!! You made the whole package friendly, helpful when needed...!! Thank You so much.
Sharon Gwynn - Fareham Crusaders Running Club, Hampshire
Thank you for organising a great trip to Berlin, I had a great time on what was my first 'Running Crazy' adventure.
In fact, I was wondering if you could give me some details on the Benidorm trip please? This time I'll be taking my husband Paul.
I'm looking to run the half marathon and Paul is going to do the 10km.
Fergus & Kathryn Wills - Belfast
I hope that you're well and enjoying your international travels - hopefully we'll cross paths in the next year or so as our marathon adventures continue. Once again, thanks for your help in organising our Berlin booking. The trip was a fine way to celebrate our respective 40th birthdays. Take care,
Steve & Sally Stone - Bristol
Many thanks. We had a great time in Berlin with 'Running Crazy' and would certainly recommend you to anyone wishing to take part in a running weekend. Hope to see you again soon.
RIGA - TESTIMONIALS
Tom - Billericay, Essex
My wife, son & I had a great weekend in Riga with Malcolm & the running crazy group. Malcolm did a great job as tour leader & I have recommended Running Crazy to my running club, The Billericay Striders. Photographs and a certificate posted to my home within a week were a lovely gesture. Thanks Malcolm & hope to join you again in the near future.
Katie Brown - Leeds
Thank you Malcolm for a wonderful weekend.
This was my first trip with Running Crazy and it definitely won't be my last. Excellent choice of location (Riga), fantastic organisation (including a very well placed hotel). Looking forward to the next time (and the subsequent post race parties).
Tim Cook - Werrington Joggers, Peterborough
On behalf of the 18 from Werrington Joggers thank you to Malcolm and David for a great weekend in Riga. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, ran some brilliant times on a superfast course and are already talking about 'Where next?' Thanks for organising everything and making sure it all 'ran' so smoothly.
Michon Halladay - Brussels, Belgium (originally USA)
I loved the entire Riga, Latvia weekend! I can't wait to do it again! I did even better than I thought on my first ever Half Marathon. I came out of this with such a feeling of accomplishment and pride. I can't even describe to you how much this has changed me. Everyone was wonderful, full of energy and so supportive. The good mood was absolutely contagious. I will see you again soon. Thank you for everything!
Deryck Hutchinson - Carlisle, Cumbria
Many thanks for a fantastic time with you and everyone else in Riga. I must honestly say having travelled with all the other various Running Tour Companies over the years (I have run over 150 Marathons and nearly 300 Half Marathons), that 'Running Crazy Ltd' is by far the best! The race was very well organised and you made the time for me and everyone else on the trip so much better and enjoyable. I will certainly be travelling with you again.
Gerry Hogg - Taunton, Somerset
Letitia Moffitt - Chicago, USA
Thanks for the Riga weekend. I really enjoyed myself even though I had to pull out at 14 Miles. I am not too despondent though, as a multiple Marathoner I live to fight another day! It was nice to have others picking my brains and asking for advice. I hope to do Riga again in 2011, and now look forward to Amsterdam with you in October. Keep in touch and thanks again.
John and Tracy Francksen - Charfield, South Glos.
Thank you Malcolm for a very enjoyable weekend in Riga. It was our first experience of a 'Running Crazy' trip abroad and I am sure it won't be our last! Thanks again for a great time.
John Richmond & Eli Scott - Werrington Joggers
What a great show in Riga! Eli and I were very happy with all aspects of our trip. Your service is very personal and much appreciated including your meet and greet service at the airport, your availability on hand to sort out any queries during the trip, your support during the event which was encouraging, and your informal photo service with some splendid shots. We will definitely plan further running trips with Running Crazy in the future and make similar mention of your service to our friends.
The Riga weekend was a LOT of fun, totally worth travelling the 20+ hours for me to get there. Thanks for another great time.
PRAGUE - TESTIMONIALS
Sally Jones - London
This was my first trip with Running Crazy and having enjoyed a very stress-free and fun weekend in Prague, it won't be my last. In fact, I've already started looking into what other trips and half-marathons I can do in the future with Malcolm and his team. Everything was so well organised and everyone I met was very friendly. Definitely a great experience all round!
Mick Mills - Israel
Prague for the second time, and my 8th overseas race with Running Crazy. I wouldn't contemplate using any other sports travel company. The organization and personal attention of Malcolm and team are outstanding, and I can only add my strong recommendation.
Robin Alexander - Belfast, Northern Ireland
Thanks to Malcolm and Stuart for a well organised weekend in Prague. This is my second trip with Running Crazy, wouldn't go with any other company now. Loved Prague, will go again.
Laura - Northern Ireland
Just been to Prague with Running Crazy and the charity 'Action Cancer' for my 1st half marathon. Had an excellent weekend and am already planning my next trip.
Scott Anderson - Aberdeen
A big thanks to Malcolm and Stuart for a great weekend in Prague. Great organisation and very stress free. Hope to see you sometime in the near future.
Mick Woods - Bushfield Joggers
Hi Malcolm and crew.......We all enjoyed the Prague Half Marathon very much.......as usual very well organised......... you couldn't have picked a better location for the hotel in relation to the start, finish and the city centre. Look forward to getting a group of us up for next year. Keep up the good work mate.
Tom Johnson - Bushfield Joggers/Peterborough
A big thank you to the Running Crazy team for our experience of the Prague half marathon. This was the second time our club has used this excellent company and it certainly shall not be the last. As always all was very well organized, the guys were informative, friendly and knowledgeable, and above all else they make it as fun or relaxing as you wish the break to be. Hence this company comes highly recommended by myself and all from our club. Once again thank you Running Crazy from all at Bushfield Joggers.
Brigitte - Brighton Running Sisters
Many thanks to Malcolm and Stuart for making our stay in Prague stress free. This was our 3rd trip with Running Crazy and I thoroughly recommend them to any running clubs and single travellers alike. Just decide which race you wish to enter, book your flight and let Running Crazy do the rest, what could be easier?
Lydia Plackett - Leyland, Lancs
Thank you, thank you, so much for looking after us all so well while we were in Prague and not least for making sure Mr P. and I got to the airport on time and on the right day! We had a wonderful few days away. I am looking forward to running again with 'Running Crazy Ltd'.
Veronica Cetin - Ballina, Ireland
Every time I look at my well placed Running Crazy frog I get a reminder of why I run and a reminder of a great weekend in Prague. As a single person in a foreign land, Running Crazy took care of every little thing, next time - there will be a next time! - I will book my trip to include a few days to party and relax. Thanks again
Liz Laird - Calne, Wiltshire
Prague Half Marathon - Thank you Malcolm and Mac for another fabulous weekend with Running Crazy. As always travelling alone was not a problem, new friends made immediately and with all the opportunities to meet up with all the other 'Crazy' runners you are never alone! A fabulous race and a new PB (thank you Mike) and a wonderful way to spend your Birthday! The after race party was brilliant, thank you for everything!!!
Matthew and Valerie - Oldham
Thanks for a great weekend in Prague for the Half Marathon. It was our first time with Running Crazy and it certainly wont be the last, really well organised from start to finish
CALVIA, MAJORCA - TESTIMONIALS
Dawn Gardener - Newcastle
This was our first trip with Running Crazy and I wouldn't hesitate to book with them again or to recommend them to my fellow runners. It was so well organised with a real family atmosphere, we felt very well looked after by all. The race was without a doubt worth doing but I'm still confused as to how everyone appeared to have so much energy at the 'after race party' (which by the way was a good one).
Looking forward to our next trip.
Well done Running Crazy.
Mike Russell - Hertfordshire
Have recently returned from completing the Calvia Marathon in Majorca with Running Crazy.....and can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for Malcolm and his colleagues and the cost was extremely reasonable. The organisation of the weekend was excellent and the Marathon itself was very well marshalled. I was particularly impressed at Malcolm's ability to organise such fine weather for us in Majorca! I would certainly recommend Running Crazy to anyone considering running a marathon overseas. Best wishes for the future, Malcolm!
John - Dorchester
Just returned from Majorca after the marathon. Thank you Malcolm, Gerry and Richard for making the weekend so enjoyable and easy to enjoy!! As always the organization was spot on, the hotel ideal and the company of all the other runners made for a super relaxing time. My third trip with Running Crazy and I am already looking forward to the next one! Thanks again!!
Karen - Chichester
This was my first trip with Running Crazy. I was travelling on my own for the first time but I needn't have worried...Richard was there to meet me at the airport and from then on I never felt alone! Thank you Malcolm for looking after me that first day and introducing me to Liz and thanks to all of you for such a great weekend. I have told my friends all about you and will definitely be booking up with you again sometime next year.
Nigel Dorman - Handsworth Roadhogs, Sheffield
Many thanks for a very enjoyable Calvia, Majorca race weekend. All four of us Handsworth Roadhogs (Sheffield) enjoyed the event. For three of us it was our first time with 'Running Crazy' - we were all impressed with the event organisation and hotel accommodation. It has certainly given us the appetite to organise another weekend away with 'Running Crazy' next year and hopefully entice a greater number of our club runners to join us. Again many thanks to Gerry, Helen and Malcolm.
Jeremy Kerner - Majorca
Malcolm - I just wanted to thank you for making one of the most memorable experiences - my first Marathon - also one of the best ones. You really made a difference. I am still buzzing from the Calvia, Majorca race and I am looking forward to the next one! Thanks again for being so helpful and friendly.
Tim Marshall - Harpenden
A great weekend organised by the guys at Running Crazy. For the risk of using too many superlatives, why would you consider going abroad without Malcolm and the boys? A fun weekend and a service that you wouldn't get if you booked independently. After race party awesome and, yet again, met some great people. See you in Prague!
Josh and Belinda Strahorn - Fife, Scotland
Thank you for a wonderful weekend Malcolm, Helen and Gerry. Josh and I really enjoyed ourselves. You did a wonderful job and everything was very well organised.....thank you once again.
Ken & Jeanette Parslow - Penarth
Malcolm, we really appreciate your very caring attitude that shone through for the whole of the weekend...and even beyond in offering to help locate our lost shoe! We really enjoyed supporting the runners and I feel that our applause and cheers at the 9 & 18 mile marks, plus at the Start and Finish was really appreciated by the runners. Please keep us posted for any future runs where we could offer some support.
Sheila Duffy - Handsworth Roadhogs, Sheffield
I want to thank you for a great weekend - all of us at Handsworth Roadhogs had a really good time. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The hotel was lovely. I was very impressed with the food and particularly because I am a Vegan - there was plenty of choice even soy milk at breakfast! The staff were very friendly and helpful and of course the 'Running Crazy' team were brilliant. I enjoyed the race (despite the wet weather). I have run a few half marathons but have never witnessed the finish of a marathon before. I was surprised at how emotional I found it and was full of admiration for all the finishers. I may even be inspired enough to do one myself one day! The icing on the cake was me winning a trophy - great! This was my first overseas race and I would certainly recommend 'Running Crazy' to fellow runners. Thank you again for a great weekend in Majorca. Please pass on my thanks to your team.
Lorraine Read - Eastleigh Running Club
Hi Malcolm. A Big "thank you" to you and your helpers for the Palma Marathon, Half Marathon & 10KM trip from all our group. Excellent organisation, lovely hotel - we had a great few days in Majorca and really enjoyed ourselves. It was good to bring a few trophies home!! Thanks for all your hard work and attention to detail - very much appreciated.

BARCELONA MARATHON - TESTIMONIALS
Mark Elliott - 'Help for Heroes' Charity, Wiltshire
I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and all your team for a great weekend in Barcelona. Everthing was made so very easy, we were looked after brilliantly and efficiently. Even the marathon course wasn't to bad, although I'm not sure you would call it flat! Please pass on my thanks to all your team they were brilliant. Will see you soon for more marathons! Well done Running Crazy! Cheers
Lorraine Smith - Dartford Road Runners
Thank you for making the Barcelona Marathon such an enjoyable and relaxed weekend - despite the 26 miles! The hotel was perfect in terms of facilities and proximity to the race start. This made everything so much easier and I am sure it contributed to my time. Thank you too for the 'Running Crazy' trophy. This was a lovely surprise on Tuesday at our club AGM.
Matt Fox - Wales
Just wanted to say thanks for the Barcelona Marathon weekend. You made it a lot easier for us especially with the short amount of time we were in the city. We are already starting to plan our next marathon and I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking to do a Marathon (or less) overseas.
Brian - Kent
Thanks for making the Barcelona Marathon weekend so easy. Am looking forward to my next trip.........just got to decide which one.
Lynne - Gloucestershire
Many thanks to Malcolm and his team for the trip arranged to the Barcelona Marathon. Bareclona was my first marathon organised through Running Crazy - and it was a wonderful experience, I would recommend travelling with them for any international marathon. Very well organised, you don't have to think about where to go etc making the preparation for the marathon easier on arrival.
Barcelona as a marathon was great - though hot and not as flat as I expected!!!!
Thanks to all at Running Crazy and will definitely see you again.
Sheena - Northern Ireland
Hi Malcolm, just a quick note to say "Thankyou so much" for looking after my family & I in Barcelona. We really had a fab time and that was down to you & the efforts of your team, I cant thank you enough! If you are thinking of using the services of Running Crazy - please do - Oh & buy Malcolm a pint before you go home - he really deserves it!
Alan - Manchester
Just returned from doing Barcelona Marathon, my second trip with Running Crazy, as with the first, a perfectly well organised weekend. Malcolm and the gang go out of their way to make things as stress free as possible, all you have to do is turn up and run. Highly Recommended company who I will be using again. Many thanks again.

BARCELONA HALF MARATHON - TESTIMONIALS
Linda Kellie - Women's Running Network, Wigan
The support and organisation from 'Running Crazy' at the Barcelona Half Marathon was great! Airport transfer, hotel and general support surpassed my expectations! I have run in Europe previously having made all my own arrangements........but doing it this way removed all the stress and messing about collecting race numbers etc. On the whole I cannot recommend the company enough, and I am looking forward to the next time.
Geraldine McKay - Children in Crossfire Charity - Ireland
A big thank you for all your efforts for us as a group in Barcelona. We had a super time and that was largely down to the 'Running Crazy' team. We had no worries at all, and that was class. I think I slept for Ireland after the race but it was all worth it. Many thanks again.
Janette Kilgour - Newcastle
Thanks for a wonderful time in Barcelona - I look forward to joining you on another tour soon.

Chris Beresford - Cornwall
Barcelona race was great (First Sub 2 1/2). Hotel clean and quiet, well located for the start. Good to have all the hassles taken away!!

Phelim O'Neill - Crossmaglen
Thank you to Malcolm and Richard for a well organised hassle free weekend in Barcelona. The hotel was great and well placed for the city centre and the start and finish of race.

Conor McElduff - Carrickmore, N. Ireland
Just back from Barcelona with Running Crazy. Great weekend. Well organised trip by Malcolm. Many thanks Malcolm. You made the whole experience totally hassle free which provided for stress free weekend. Thanks again. Highly recommended.
Carol Green - Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire
First time with Running Crazy and definitely not the last. Thank you Malcolm and Richard for such a great race experience. Great hotel in a brilliant position. It was the little extras that made it too - picking up our numbers/bags, the support along the route (much appreciated) and photo's you gave us on the train - oh and the chalk messages on the road in the last mile really made me smile. Thanks again.
Kevin Bradley - Suffolk
Excellent weekend in Barcelona - great 1/2 marathon - first time with Running Crazy - will definitely travel with you again.

Deirdre Carmody - Cork, Ireland
Thanks Malcolm for a fantastic time as always. I have travelled to the Benidorm and Malta marathons with running crazy and the care and attention from Malcolm and his staff is really amazing nothing is impossible,they really try their best to ensure their clients happiness. Everything is covered all you have to do is run the miles! Until the next time
James Kerr - Troon, Scotland (originally Perth, Australia)
This is such an awesome concept. Combining running with travel. I had a great time in Malta, nice easy downhill Half Marathon course. Some great people to hang and party with afterwards, and two great organisers in Gerry and Malcolm. You are made to feel so welcome and part of the group. I can recommend this to anyone from your elite super fit athletes, to the more casual want to party and travel, as well as do some running.
Kathy Ling - Wrekin Road Runners
I would like to say a BIG THANKYOU for the Malta Half Marathon. My husband John and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we would recommend 'Running Crazy' to everyone. I would particularly like to thank you for your encouragement over the closing stages - it was like having a Personal Trainer!
Andy Walker - Guernsey, Channel Islands

James Bringlowe - Aldershot
Malcolm and Gerry really looked after us in Malta and made the weekend. They made sure that everyone felt important, involved and part of the group. Having them near the end to encourage you (and everyone of the group!) on was fantastic. Everything was clear and well organised. I'll be booking again.
Liz Laird - Calne, Wilts
Fabulous weekend in Malta, I had so much fun! Great downhill (thank you!!) course, wonderful organisation and an after race party which won't be forgotten in a while! Another great weekend with Running Crazy. Thank you Malcolm and Gerry.
Theodora - Vaxholm, Sweden
Malcolm (and the rest of Running Crazy), thank you! Thank you for taking care of two, kind of lost, girls who didn't really have much clue what they had signed up for. Thank you for the really great support of you and Gerry, all the race tips, amazing organisation and a very fun weekend! I definitely want to travel with you again, and thanks to all the kind and supporting people. I'm so hooked on running, and want to continue competing. Hope to see you again.

BENIDORM - TESTIMONIALS
Denise and John Albutt - Poynton, Cheshire
Thanks again for another brilliant weekend in Benidorm. Great location for half marathon and of course weather was superb!! Many thanks to all your team for being so caring and helpful. This was our third trip with 'Running Crazy' and we would recommend to anyone wanting to have a fun weekend and just a 'little run'. Its good to meet runners of all standards, from people running their 1st half marathon to those who have run over 100 marathons, everyone is so friendly and encouraging.
Carole Priestley - Leicester OWLS Running Club
Had a wonderful time in Benidorm, a very big thank you Malcolm to you and your team from myself and the other members of the OWLS Running Club. Could not fault the organisation. Very professional with a nice personal touch.
Sue Threadgold - Harrogate
Hi Malcolm - I received my Benidorm race photo-certificate and CD-Rom video movie in the post yesterday - as you say it is a lovely souvenir. You have put it together really nicely too - I especially like the Snow Patrol track 'Run', one of my favourites and of course so appropriate! You and your team did a great job to get all your groups in - I don't know how you manage to recognise all the faces of all the groups especially when they weren't wearing the same club vests. It was just brilliant with the hotel being so close to the venue - the hotel was great too! All in all a very enjoyable weekend. A big thank you for looking after us all.
Kirsty Spittles - Fareham Crusaders Running Club, Hampshire
Thanks for a fantastic weekend in Benidorm. I was hoping for a great weekend but it was fantastic! We haven't stopped going on about it back at the Club. We are already discussing next year's trip! Thanks again and we will see you 'on tour' again some time next year.
Gordon Booth - Longwood Harriers AC
Many, many thanks for the wonderful organisation of the Benidorm Half Marathon. Sheila and I were most impressed and look forward to joining you again at some future event. The hotel and all the facilities bordered on excellence. Wishing your company all the success you rightly deserve.
Sarah Wilcox-Jones - Motor Neurone Charity
I will definitely be running another event with 'Running Crazy' - I loved it. Please pass on my thanks to all the staff for a wonderful weekend away.
Kathleen Coates - Harrogate Women's Running Network
We had a fabulous weekend in Benidorm! Malcolm and the team had everything organised for us. The race went smoothly and the party afterwards was great fun! Would highly recommend Running Crazy to other clubs.
Alan Kerr - Co. Antrim
My partner arrived the day after me due to a sickness in the family, she was due to arrive with me, butt there was no problem with picking her and me up at the airport when I arrived to meet her. Malcolm and the boys run a good show, and the after race party show was great. We'll see them again in 2010
Joan Mc Ternan - Co. Kildare Ireland
Just returned from a brilliant weekend in Benidorm. Our Ladies group of eight were very impressed with Malcolm and his fantastic team. This is our eleventh annual trip doing half marathons in different European locations. We usually look after our own arrangements but all the hard work was taken out of our hands and all that was left for us to do was enjoy ourselves and that we certainly did.
We highly recommend "Running Crazy" and we look forward to our next trip with them
Jacqueline Fowler - Tewkesbury, Glos
Malcolm and the Running Crazy crew are excellent hosts. My husband and I had a great running break in Benidorm and already thinking about our next trip. The encouragement from Malcolm and his team helped us reach that finish line! The mix of fun, racing, partying and expertly organised logistics by Running Crazy will be hard to beat. And thanks for making my husband Haydn's birthday one to remember. Highly recommended!!
Elaine Shepherd - Chippenham, Wiltshire
My husband Alan and his mate Jack have just returned from running the Benidorm half marathon c/o Malcolm Hargraves and Running Crazy' They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have nothing but good to say about the whole event. Nothing was too much trouble for Malcolm and his staff and they will definitely be recommending Running Crazy to others and are planning their next destination - Thank you.
Jane - Brighton
I'm just back from running the Benidorm half marathon. It was my first trip with Running Crazy. I had a fantastic time. The whole trip was very well organised. I will definitely be recommending Running Crazy to friends.
Brigitte Groves - Brighton
Thank you Malcolm and Kipper for a fantastico Benidorm yet again. The Running Crazy 10k, complete with water station wonders and unchipped timing, was great. This is my 4th trip (3rd Benidorm) with Running Crazy and I can't fault the organisation, the attention to detail is spot on. Malcolm goes out of his way to make sure everyone is happy and safe.
Michele Saunders - Brighton
Thanks to Malcolm and Kipper for organising a great weekend in Benidorm - despite the obvious disappointment of the cancellation of the half marathon! Malcolm's organisation of an 'unofficial' 10k race was well attended and gave everyone the opportunity to do what they had come to Benidorm to do - RUN!!!! I enjoyed every aspect of our weekend in Benidorm and would definitely book another trip with RUNNING CRAZY!
Susan Lucas - Lancaster
Benidorm is a great venue for a winter race and although the half marathon was cancelled, Malcolm made brilliant arrangements for the 10k alternative - even including water stations! Running Crazy remains the best running events organisation and Malcolm's attention to detail is faultless - and social programme, karaoke not bad either.
Wendi Witton - Brighton
Third time to Benidorm with Running Crazy and despite the cancellation it was just great. Malcolm's swift organisation of the impromptu10k was masterly. Organisation is excellent. Malcolm and Kipper think of everything - thank you very much. See you again soon.

BARCELONA, NEW YEAR 10K - TESTIMONIALS
Mike Smith - Bingley Harriers
We went to Barcelona for the New Year 10k, what a winner- Everything worked like clockwork, organisation, information, and social arrangements.(Managed to celebrate New Year twice. Spanish time in a restaurant, and U.K Time in the Irish Bar) It was the first time we had travelled with "Running Crazy" we found the whole group very welcoming and felt included from the start. The Race is great and little details, like one of the staff looking after your kit at the start and waiting for you at the finish with a drink-alcoholic or not-your choice. Just made it for us. Thanks a lot to those guys.
Catherine Pang - West Midlands
This thank you is overdue!! The Barcelona 10k on New Years Eve was brilliant! The race itself was made stress free by Malcolm's knowledge of the area and by having hotels so close to the start- so no problems with changing or toilet queues etc. I came with my daughter as support this time but would happily travel alone with Running Crazy next time, as the group was very inclusive and friendly, whilst also enabling you to get out and do your own thing. Malcolm and his team were happy to answer any questions and easily contactable throughout. Amazingly, took time out to make sure that we were safe getting back to the hotel on New Year's morning when we left and the party was still in full swing - This service was second to none and very much appreciated - thank you Kipper!!
Melanie Fuller - Holmfirth
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for an amazing New Year in Barcelona! It has to be one of the best New Year celebrations I have ever had (despite the very, very sore feet from dancing in stupidly high heels until the early hours of the morning!). Please let me know as soon as you plan next year's event - Emma, Mick, Nev and me will definitely be joining you!
Julia Armstrong - Eastbourne
Thank you Malcolm, Phil and Kipper, I had the most wonderful time in Barcelona. You looked after me so well - and I ran fast too! You are great - and I loved the rest of the group too - great team spirit. I am already booking up my next trip with you!
Mel - Bristol
Six 'elderly' runners chose Barcelona 'San Silvestre' 10K as their first 'race'. What a brilliant choice it was! Malcolm and his colleagues made everything go smoothly without being too regimented so everyone had a choice of what to do as a group and what to do in smaller units! Excellent! Looking forward to the Running Crazy Amsterdam trip (we love flat routes!!!).
Steven & Jane Lenza - Dumfries, Scotland
Big thanks to Malcolm, Kipper and Phil for the excellent organisation. This was our first time to Barcelona and a very good taster - too much to see so will have to return sometime. Thoroughly enjoyed the race on Hogmany and the much needed drinks later in the evening. Nice to see everyone and hopefully we will meet up again some time. Once again many thanks.
Barbara and Wally Obo = Chester
Many thanks to Malcolm, Kipper and Phil for another wonderful trip to Barcelona & the race on new year's eve was a great start to the festivities, which we all enjoyed. a great team of guys who really take care of you. We'll be going crazy later on this year-- we're addicted.
Steven Haynes - Stockport
As a non-runner (My wife was running) I was made to feel welcome from the start and included in every aspect. Great hotel, fabulous pasta party and a great race ( I know that's good coming from a spectator). Overall fantastic time, thanks Malcolm and the team for a great holiday.
Rob & Pat Heddon - Worthing, West Sussex
Barcelona 10k. This was our first trip/race with Running Crazy. We felt it was very well organised and the 3 staff that were there were very helpful and answered all our questions. We had a fab time and certainly would go with you again and will recommend you to all in our running club. Thank you very much.

AMSTERDAM - TESTIMONIALS
Julie Gascoyne - Chesterfield, Derbyshire
Thank you Malcolm and Kipper for making the Amsterdam weekend a very enjoyable weekend. Nick and I didn't have to worry about anything apart from running the marathon and half marathon respectively. Everything was very well organised from the moment we stepped off the plane to our leaving on the monday and Malcolm and Kipper are both excellent company to be with and had obviously done their homework both with regards to the race and the pre/post race activities!! Absolutely brilliant and fantastic value for money. We will definetly be going with Running Crazy again on many more running weekends and we would recommend them to anyone who wants to run abroad, hassle free. Thanks for a great weekend.
Valerie Pell - Kippax Harriers, Yorkshire
Thanks to both you and Gerry North for making our weekend so enjoyable and hassle free. Like you said when we arrived - all we had to do was run. Thanks again.
Lee - Clevedon
I have just returned from completing the Amsterdam marathon, my 5th event with Running Crazy, Malcolm and his staff have always been extremely helpful with their advice, and are able to rectify any potential problems expediently, will look forward to many more events with Running Crazy.
Lesley & Rhonda - Jedburgh
Belated thanks to Malcolm and Gerry for a fantastically well organised weekend in Amsterdam. This was our first run abroad and being novice runners we were unsure of what to expect. We needn't have worried! All was taken care of, all we had to do was run! We would wholeheartedly recommend Running Crazy. Hello to everyone we met - hope to see you again somewhere! Kindest regards to Malcolm and the Legend that is Gerry North!
Jean Hughes - Somerset
Malcolm and Gerry, thank you very much for a fabulous weekend. All we had to do was meet you at the airport and the rest went like clockwork. Peter and I loved Amsterdam and I enjoyed doing the Marathon. It was definitely worth going with Running Crazy and I will certainly use you again, I'm just trying to make up my mind which marathon it will be. Thank you from a very satisfied customer.
Alan, Dave, Gordon & Gary. - Manchester
Our third trip with Running Crazy, and as with the previous two perfectly organised by Malcolm to give you a stress free weekend, so all you have to do is turn up and run. Excellent hotel again perfectly situated for the race and also Amsterdam's other interesting areas. Will definitely be using Running Crazy again, just got to decide where to this time. Many thanks to Malcolm and Gerry once again for a great weekend. See you soon!

BUDAPEST HALF MARATHON - TESTIMONIALS
Tom Johnson - Bushfield Joggers
On behalf of all at Bushfield Joggers, a massive thankyou to all the Running Crazy team for making the Budapest half marathon one of the most enjoyable and positive running experiences our club has had. The guys in green worked relentlessly to ensure we were safe, comfortable and that everyone enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend this friendly, well established service to any runner of any ability. Whether you are part of a large group or travelling alone, you can guarantee you will be met with a smile and that the only thing you need worry about during your stay is whether your laces are tied tight enough on the day. Thanks again Running Crazy, Bushfield Joggers will see you in Prague.
Myles - Belfast, Northern Ireland
The Budapest half marathon was a great success and very well organised. I would definitely recommend this group and hope to run again with them in the future. I felt we were well catered for. Thank you.
Heather Clanfield and Gill Salter - Fittleworth Flyers
A big thank you for all your help, kindness and support at the Budapest Half Marathon. We had a great time and will be encouraging friends and club mates to use you in the future as well as coming with you again ourselves.
Ross Weston - Telford
Can't recommend one of Malcolm's trips highly enough, met us at the airport, looked after us when we couldn't exchange our money and took us to some fine pubs. Looking forward to the next encounter.
Simon Burrell - Richmond
Malcolm and the team pulled it off again at Budapest! Same great attention to detail. What you get with these tours is a low stress, well organised weekend with a race in the middle of it. You don't have to worry about race entries, the hotel is always a good standard and excellently located from the race start/finish and the guys pick you up and drop you off from the airport. What's more, Malcolm and his helpers are fantastically attentive - nothing is too much trouble and they are really good fun. You also get to meet like-minded people and share war stories. We can't recommend these guys highly enough - we are Running Crazy converts - really looking forward to Riga.

TORREMOLINOS HALF MARATHON - TESTIMONIALS
Norman Grundy - Birkenhead AC
What a superb 4 nights we had. The organisation from Running Crazy was second to none. Malcolm ably supported by Dad John put hours in to make our stay in Torremolinos a success and it was. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Hotel, food, Irish bar and disco were great. The race itself was a huge success with Malcolm again making sure everybody was taken care of. Photo's at the start and along the course, with the prints delivered not long after the race had finished.
We, Birkenhead AC, will certainly use Running Crazy again. Another venue next year but the same good time to look forward to. Thank you Running Crazy.
Dave Jardin - Newcastle
Just a quick E-Mail to say thanks for a 1st class weekend in Torremolinos. Everything went well with a new PB on the run (must have been that refreshing rain or your efficient pre-race organisation), which was topped off with a top class after race party. Also appreciated your help when my flight back was cancelled which was a good excuse for another relaxing day and night on holiday. Hope to catch you soon on another of your weekends.
Barry Hopper - Instinctive Sports, Plymouth
Six of us came to Torremolinos and four of us ran the Half Marathon. Many thanks to Malcolm and John, and anyone else involved. We were met at the airport, taken to the hotel and well looked after during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble, including advising us on places to visit on our days off. The race was well organised, the weather was perfect and trophies and prizes worth having. Many thanks and see you again somewhere sometime.
Abbe - Coventry
Had a great trip thanks to the organisation of Malcolm and team. This was our first with Running Crazy but myself and the 3 other runners from Northbrook AC in Coventry (Jo, Angela and Richard) will most certainly be looking to do another. Would recommend this type of trip to runners of any level. Thanks again.
Debs & Andy Gardner - Cheshire
Thanks Running Crazy for a great weekend. Torremolinos Half Marathon was a good race. The race was great, hotel, pasta party and the final disco night. Looking forward to using you again - well done.

NIAGARA FALLS - TESTIMONIAL
Andrew & Catherine Bell - Sunderland
Travelling to Toronto & Niagara Falls with Running Crazy was completely hassle & stress free. From being met at Toronto Airport through to the race then leaving Niagara Falls. Finishing the Niagara Falls race with such a spectacular backdrop was certainly worth it. A very well organised trip and I would recommend Running Crazy and we will be using them in the future.
