Club trip Mallorca - October 2018
The Saltaire Striders overseas trip / race for 2018 is Palma in Mallorca. If you want to be part of the trip then you need to do the following:
Book your flights
Flight out on Friday 12 October with Jet 2 departs at 06:30
Flight back on Monday 15 October with Ryanair departs at 13:45
These are suggested flights for everyone to travel together, and were the cheapest options, however you can book days/times to suit yourself if these don't meet your needs.
Note that prices have been going up and down so you will need to take a call re when you book, waiting may mean prices go down but you run the risk of not getting your preferred flight.
Also note, that there are cheaper options to fly back later in the week if anyone wants to add one or more days onto their trip and other airlines.
Book the hotel
The hotel is Tryp Palma Bellver Hotel. Please make sure you search for the Mallorca one.
This is centrally located, overlooks the marina, and is reasonably priced. It is 15/20 minutes walk to the cathedral and the park where the race expo and race start is, and located well for strolling into the old town.
The hotel is right on the bus route which serves the airport for those who want to transfer using public transport.
You can find the hotel on sites like Booking.com
and can reserve without having to pay up front.
For anyone looking for a much cheaper option there is a basic but nice looking hostel - similar to the one we stayed in on the Iceland trip. Contact Lindsey Pearson
if you want the details.
Enter your race of choice
Here is the website for the race, which offers marathon, half marathon and 10k options.
The sooner you enter the better as the entry fees raise periodically over time.
Please let Lindsey Pearson know if you are going on the trip, and if anyone else is joining you. She will make arrangements for airport/hotel transfers if required, discuss whether we want trip t.shirts, arrange social activity etc.
Partners, including non runners are more than welcome.
Please do get in touch if you want any information or help with your booking.
