Sofia Running Festival May 2019
After a hugely successful trip to Bucharest with 90 amazing GoodGymers painting Romania red, your favourite combo – Ax & PB – will be bringing you GGxSofia 2019!
We're off to the capital of Bulgaria next May, with the races taking place on Sunday 12th May (waiting to be fully confirmed). This will be the 5th year GGxEuro Trip - come make it awesome! We will be bringing you:
- Four day's in an Eastern-European City
- With various race distances - 5km, 10km or Half Marathon (21km)
- Good food, good drinks and GREAT company!
To inspire you to sign up for the trip of a lifetime we'll leave you with these quotes about Bucharest 2018:
Steve Coman: "I absolutely loved the spa, cocktails in the pool - why not!"
Pritesh Mistry: "I love getting three medals in a day - all the bling!"
Hayley Oberlander: "I brought my karoke game, and I won life"
Race: You've got 5k, 10k or 21.1k (half marathon) too choose from. These cost somewhere between £5 and £20 at the moment - bargain! You can register by following this link.
Flights: Of course there is plenty of choice with these and as ever with the GGxEuro trip we only recommend things, you can do what you like. So these are the ones we recommend:
Outbound - Either 4.20pm from London Stansted with Ryanair on Friday 10th or 6.00am with Ryanair from London Stansted on Saturday 11th. I will likely be on the first flight, I'm not good with early starts ha!
Return - 12.05pm with Ryanair on Tuesday 14th to London Stansted.
Spreadsheet: It helps for us to know who is coming and what you are all doing. Therefore please fill in this spreadsheet.
Accommodation: Recommendations on it's way.
Please note that this event/race is not organised by the GoodGym Race Team and its not part of the big six races for 2019. This event is organised by Paul Bown (email@example.com) and Axel Manzano (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Looking forward to it!
