MFR Annual Holiday


Every year MFR packs its bags and goes en masse to foreign parts for a long weekend of running and socialising. The destination is always somewhere in Europe that is easy to get to and with a range of running distances on offer (10k, half and full marathon) so as many club members as possible can participate.

2018 Holiday; Reykjavik 20th – 24th June

The annual club holiday has moved for 2018 to the summer – we’re heading to Iceland to visit the beautiful city of Reykjavik. The run is on the Thursday night, with half marathon, plus 5 and 10k distances. Details here :

2016 Holiday – Palma, Majorca

During October a group of us ventured to the holiday island of Mallorca after a public vote. The city of Palma is definitely a hidden gem which most visitors to the island miss, but we didn’t! We had great food, great beer, great races and more importantly a great time. Our adopted district of Santa Catalina offered more bars and restaurants than we could cope with and many of us took in the atmosphere and history of the Old Town, Cathedral and beaches. A few of us, but not all (they will want me to add) even ventured to Magaluf for a couple of hours low brow time!

Here is a selection of our photographs from our time away, and we look forward to doing it all again in 2017.
