Park Guell, Barcelona

Park Guell, Barcelona

As part of a “new strand” of blog articles I thought that it might be of interest(!) to see where Curry Club Runners went running on their holidays. I (Jerry) have just returned from a week with Sarah and the kids at Port Aventura In Salou.

For those that don’t know Port Aventura is a theme park from Universal Studios an hour south of Barcelona and features a number of truly scary rides, such as the Condor. The photo speaks for itself.

Whilst enjoying the theme park, and the excellent Hotel Caribe, I managed to get in five 6 mile runs which really got me out and about the towns of Salou and La Pineda. Highligh for me was being thrown out of the Port Aventura Golf Course and being driven out by asecurity guard at 8:00 o’clock in the morning. Still, the forty mile an hour section on the Forerunner looks pretty good.

Another use for the forerunner was on the rides – great for checking that maximum speed. The Stampida, see video, showed a maximum speed of 45 mph. Altogether, a great holiday well organised by First Choice holidays.
