Munich Running Festival October 2024

12th January 2024

By James Wright

Myself, along with Sarah and David Glover, have booked to head off to the Munich Running Festival on 13th October (plus a parkrun on the 12th) and would love more Striders to join us!

The Sunday has a number of events available – a 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon and a Marathon relay (4 participants needed) – so lots of options to cater for all abilities and distances.

We will be heading to Westpark parkrun on the Saturday, so if you don’t fancy one of the main running events, feel free to come along, do the parkrun and then be Striders supporters on the Sunday!

Flight wise, we have booked on the 13:45 EasyJet flight from Manchester on Friday 11th October, returning on the 21:55 on Monday 14th October.

For accommodation we have booked the ‘B&B HOTEL München-Olympiapark’ which is within walking distance of the start and finish of the Sunday events and provides good metro access to/from the airport and into the main city area. Obviously there are many hotel options available so if you book the trip and fancy staying somewhere else that’s no problem at all.

If you have any questions about the trip please speak to me, Sarah or David at a club night. If you book, let us know and we can add you to a trip WhatsApp group chat.
