This is a flat course along the coast of Lanzarote. The Marathon course is an out and back route.
The Half Marathon starts at the turn around point of the full marathon. We will make arrangements for runners to be transported to the start line in good time for their event. The 10K is a straight route to the finish and again we will make arrangements to transport runners to the start line.
Spectators and Supporters:
We know how important spectators and supporters are at these events. We provide a spectators 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.
'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 Ltd' have secured great 4* Hotel accommodation on a Half Board basis. Enjoying an evening meal together is a great way of socialising and there is a wide choice of food from the buffet style restaurant. Most runners will leave their kit in the hotel but as we will be arranging transportation to the start, you are welcome to leave kit with us. We will deliver this to the hotel in time for your return. 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.
There have been varied weather conditions over recent years. Here are the figures:
• average sunshine hours per day: 7

There are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants in the area and many have cabaret performances and live entertainment. 'Running Crazy Ltd' offer a free after race party 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.
Lanzarote is a great venue for a group of runners. Evening meals together are a great form of bonding exercise. Lots of evening entertainment that is just crying out to be shared too. 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.
Our all inclusive prices are extremely competitive - from as little as just £99/€119/US$169 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!
