There are also apartments out there too

So what we did last year was a few booked in the same accommodation and shared where they were staying so anyone else could join - especially as a good deal was found!
We booked it all separately, where you want to stay, flights, how long you want to stay for etc. being fairly relaxed and meeting up for dinner.

A great chance to get away somewhere different for a running / holiday! So have a look, save the date, book, shout up if you're going and where staying ... lets make it a good one!
