DUKES ST JAMES LONDON launches special package for budding London Marathon runners

For those planning to take part in this year’s London Marathon on Sunday 13th April, a good night’s sleep is in order. Where better to relax and prepare for this special event than at DUKES ST JAMES LONDON, where hopeful marathon runners can enjoy the hotel’s luxury London Marathon package, available from 12th to 14th April 2014.

Runners checking in to one of DUKES’ comfortable Classic, Superior or Luxury rooms will automatically receive a complimentary upgrade to the next room category upon booking. To ensure all runners are properly fuelled ahead of the big day, guests are invited to dine the night before at the hotel’s signature restaurant, THIRTY SIX By Nigel Mendham. Here they can enjoy a delicious, carbohydrate-packed pasta dish prepared by Executive Head Chef, Nigel Mendham, designed to fill them with as much energy as possible in the run up to the event.  

The next day, before setting off on the mammoth 26 mile journey, guests can set themselves up with an early breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant, THIRTY SIX By Nigel Mendham.  DUKES’ leading personal trainer, Henry Barratt, is delighted to offer guests the following tips:  

“Maintain your energy levels throughout the race and avoid 'hitting the wall' at mile 20 by replacing electrolytes, salts and eating solid foods every 30min, even if you don't feel hungry. Electrolyte rehydration sachets can be bought from any leading pharmacy and mixed with water. Continued water hydration with small sips throughout the race is recommended.”  

Hours later, upon reaching the marathon’s final point at The Mall in Mayfair, guests can make their way back to the comfort of DUKES Hotel, conveniently located around the corner. Here they will be treated to a pampering post-running massage to ease any aches and pains following the big run, and can freshen up in their bedrooms, making the most of a late 5pm check out.  

Rates for The London Marathon Package are priced per person and are as follows:
• Dukes Room with complimentary upgrade to Classic Room category – £295.00
• Classic Room with complimentary upgrade to Superior Room category - £325.00
• Superior Room with complimentary upgrade to Luxury Room category - £375.00

Partaking in the London Marathon is an incredible undertaking and achievement for any runner, requiring extensive preparation. DUKES’ new London Marathon Package, available from 12th to 14th April 2014, is designed to help every guest feel as ready as they can ahead of the big event.
