FitBitches conquer Palma, Oct 2011
URGENT – BOOK FLIGHTS NOW FOR CHEAPEST PRICE – WE WILL BE FLYING OUT ON FIRST FLIGHT ON FRIDAY IF YOU WANT TO COME WITH THE GROUP BUT EASY TO BOOK LATER IF PREFERRED.
If you saw our photos of the FitBitch run club in Palma last year, (or Lisbon or Paris!) and wished you’d been along, now is your chance.
Our next international race will be the Berlin 25k,. It is NOT as previously stated a half marathon, but a tad over this distance at 15.53miles.
It is the perfect distance for those looking for their next challenge but who don’t want to run a marathon. And it would fit perfectly for those who will have just finished their Brighton Half training.
That said, we will be training beginners (you must be able to run 10k comfortably) too, so if you want to be part of a group of women all working towards the same goal (er, a weekend in Berlin with spas, great coffee shops and cocktail bars…what’s not to like about that?!) now is your chance.
There are various package price options that you can choose, as outlined below. We are adding a nominal administration fee this year. This is not us making a profit but just to cover the work/man hours it costs to us to organise these weekends.
BUT what you pay us is made up for in the savings you make in terms of the block booking discounts we negotiate on hotel bookings and race entry (we are currently waiting for them to come back to us on the 35 euro registration cost).
The package options (payable direct to the FB bank account REF Berlin, available on request).
Beginners/returnees 12 week Plan, starts week commencing February 13th, 2012
Full Option, £112 which includes 23 training sessions (Weds and Sun at £4 per session), and £20 admin fee. Free training plan.
Half Option, £74, which includes 12 sessions (Weds OR Sun at £4.50 per session), and £20 admin fee. Free training plan.
Brighton Half Marathon runners 10 week Plan, starts week commencing February 27th, 2012
If you are training for the Brighton Half, you don’t want to start your training from scratch but perhaps you want to improve on your time, or get stronger so you do even better at Berlin?
This plan will take this into account and many of our Weds training sessions will be geared towards strength and conditioning and pace work. Sunday training runs will continue at a good mileage rather than dropping back down.
Full Option, £96, which includes 19 sessions (Weds and Sun at £4 per session) and £20 admin fee. Free training plan.
Half Option, £65, which includes 10 sessions (Weds OR Sun at £4.50 per session) and £20 admin fee. Free training plan.
Can’t commit to any of these options but still want to be part of the group? Try our No Plan option, £35 which will cover the admin fee. As we say, you will make this back in the costs you save by being part of the group. Drop in runs are £5.
Obviously, flights, hotel and food costs are additional. That said, we will organise Friday and Sunday evening meals as well as the hotel booking itself (based on two sharing) to save you money. As a guide, costs per person per room in Palma were £45, including breakfast and a rather fab hot tub (although, expectations are that room rates should be cheaper than this).
We are negotiating currently with luise-berlin.com, nuernberger-eck.de,
hotel-pensionfunk.de, and http://www.kudamm101.com
