Spark Ilumina Lisboa


Spark will be across the pond again in March 2019  to take part in the Lisbon Half Marathon and Mini-Marathon. Runners who join this group will be staying in the desirable neighborhood of Bairro Alto within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, historical sites and other popular Lisbon neighborhoods. Distances for this race include Half Marathon and 8k. There are a maximum of 28 spots in the group housing and they will go quickly, so grab your room today!

: March 15 -20, 2019

Where: Lisbon, Portugal

The Apartments:

Who: Runners of any level who are running any distance race are welcome to join the group! No need to be a current Spark client. Need some running goals and motivation? Want to become a runner? Nothing like a runcation and some coaching to get you going!

What is included: All runners who book this Spark Destination will receive coaching for their choice of distance race (Half Marathon starts Dec 10th 2018, 8k January 7th 2019) through a basic Training Peaks online account. They will also receive 5 nights accommodations in the home above, a Saturday night pre-race pasta party at the home and Spark lightweight jacket with the Lisboa logo.

Optional add ons: As race weekend approaches, optional tours and meetups will be added to the itinerary and made available to all registrants. General itinerary is as follows: Friday arrival and checkin, group dinner at neighborhood restaurant. Saturday group shake out run, race expo, pasta party at apartments. Sunday race and post race meal/drinks in the early evening. Monday countryside tour and Tuesday tour in the city. Wednesday checkout and departure. Any optional tours/meals are not included in quoted price below.

I have never run a race! You have come to the right place to make it happen! Coach A and the other Spark runners will help get you ready no problem :) 

I want to run and get the other stuff but prefer to stay on my own! If you want to run but don't want to stay with the group, a Coaching/SWAG/Pasta Party Package will be available for $199.

I want to come and stay with the group but I hate running! Come talk to Coach Angela...she will convince you to run! But if she still can't, you can take a $50 discount off the published price. You will still be included in the pasta party and get the Spark Swag, because you will definitely need it to spectate!

Is there any way to get a discount? Yes! Refer up to four friends who have never been Spark customers and get $25 off for each who joins in the apartment or with a Coaching/Swag/Pasta Package. Save $100 and have your besties along?! That is a win-win! Also, if you complete the 2018 Spark Holiday Challenge, you can use your $35 credit for the second payment of trip.

I want to come and stay with the group but need a roommate! You are probably not the only one! Email and she will help you get it worked out.
