Barcelona Half Marathon 2016
Harriers International are planning again for a long weekend in Barcelona, to take part in the 2016 Barcelona Half Marathon. We have costed out a four night trip from 11th February until the 15th
February. The race is on Valentine's day there and are no return flights on the Tuesday. So it will be Thursday until Monday.
This works out as follows
11th February 2016
Birmingham – Barcelona (Monarch Airlines)
15th February 2016
Barcelona – Birmingham (Monarch Airlines)
Grupotel Gravina Hotel – Bed & Breakfast
Double/Twin £292.00 per person
20kgs hold bag £40.00 per bag
Airport Transfer to be calculated on numbers.
Deposit would be £206.00 plus bags
These prices are the prices at the moment and as we have found out in the past they can change as bookings increase. As it is Valantine's Weekend they
are expected to go quickly. 20 places have been reserved at the hotel for us and we have already have bookings for eleven.
If you want to come on this great trip contact Graham Williams, Pete Burns or get us through the website.
Message from Craig Baxter
It is with much sadness I would like to announce that I will be standing down as Chairman with immediate effect. The last two and half years have been an amazing time in my life and have seen the
Harriers grow to unprecedented levels. I have made so many very good friends in that time and have so many memories that I will cherish forever. The members support during my tenure has been beyond
belief at times.
Now to the future. Stafford Harriers are envied by so many and have lots of great people. Whoever becomes the Chairman will no doubt take on the position and relish the role in front of
them. I will still be around to support and help whenever needed.
Many thanks again for your support and friendship over the last couple of years.
