Staying over night

As soon as you have been offered a place and accepted we advise you book your accommodation. Lots of people will be doing the same and places will get booked up quickly. The best value hotels are a metro ride away from the start or finish line. University accommodation is available at reasonable prices. Do your research well and check their location carefully.
