Last week we held the 21st club overseas trip to the 32nd Media Maraton International, Torremolinos, for the Torremolinos Half Marathon.
The group met up on the Thursday before the race for an 8 mile run along the front and the climbed hills to the Christopher Columbus Castle before going to the Buddha temple and returning down hill again.
Saturday was number pick up (Dorsals) day from Montemar, where the runners collected the race tee, hoodie and bag, plus number. See photo below
Sunday was race day and a short train ride to the start, weather wise it was a good day for running with a little sun between cloudy skies, the race had 2,000 starters on the athletics track and starts with downhill overall for the first 4 miles then a long run along the sea front, before turning for the return to the track finish but from 10 miles you hit the hills.
