From galloping Glasgow to sporty Sheffield, runners and spectators could even make the most of their time in the city by refuelling at local restaurants or enjoying a well-deserved massage.

easyHotel itself has not been lying in – team member Neil Fidler recently took part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon and a further seven are signed up for a Tough Mudder event to help raise money for Parkinson’s UK.

Last year easyHotel raised more than £10,000 for the charity which aims to improve the lives of everyone affected by Parkinson’s.

Cathryn Healey, Head of Marketing at easyHotel, said: “The UK is embracing running like never before, with marathon partaking at record highs this year. easyHotel wants to support the brilliant people doing their bit for charity by offering comfortable, affordable accommodation in marathon cities.”

Runners will need to move quickly as hotel room availability is first come first served.
