November’s Travel Sporting Calendar

November’s Travel Sporting Calendar Published on .

New York Marathon - November Travel Sporting Calendar - Just Fly Business

If you are a cricket fan, you will know that the self-proclaimed ‘Barmy Army’ follow the England team across the globe. This is an increasingly popular trend among sports fans, who are increasingly willing to traverse the four corners of the globe to watch their country, favourite team or sporting idol in action.

Of course, such a commitment relies on good organisation, as sports fans must have an understanding of all upcoming events before confirming their plans. This is particularly true during the month of November, which will host thrilling events across multiple sports and in all corners of the world.

4 Key Events from November’s Sporting Calendar
Horse Racing Event

To help you plan your travels (or armchair schedules, for those who like to watch from home), we have have picked out of the stellar events to keep you eye on during November.

The New York Marathon

From its daunting skyline to incredible scope, the Big Apple is famous for many reasons. It’s marathon is not necessarily one of these, but while this race may lack the global appeal of the London alternative it remains one of the most keenly-anticipated events for athletes and runners from across the globe.

Along with similar races held in Boston and Chicago, the New York Marathon is the pre-eminent running event in North America and is held across 26.2 gruelling miles. This race is also the largest and most keenly-contested, with a world record 50,304 finishers crossing the line back in 2013.

A true sporting event in an iconic location, runners had better starting priming themselves as this will take place on Sunday, 6th of November this year.

The Melbourne Cup

One of the world’s most popular and cosmopolitan cities, Melbourne is the capital of Victoria and can also lay claim to being the second most populous location in the whole of Australia. It is also home to the iconic Melbourne Cup, which is scheduled for 1st November and is arguably the nation’s most prestigious, thoroughbred horse race.

This event draws fans and competitors from all over the world, while it is even known locally as ‘the race that stops a nation’ as people gather around their televisions to watch. In this respect, it is similar to Aintree’s Grand National in the UK, although it is important to note that the Melbourne Cup is established as the richest, two-mile handicap in the world.

The Brazilian Grand Prix

Barely two months have passed since the glory of the Rio Olympics, but Brazil and its emerging capital of Sao Paolo will once again be in the public eye on 13th November. On this day, the cities Autodrome Jose Carlos Pace will host the Brazilian Grand Prix, which is the penultimate race of the season and could decide the outcome of the Drivers’ Championship.

This race is also something of a special event in itself, as it marks the 45th running of the Brazilian Grand Prix (and the 44th occasion that it has been run as a World Championship event). This will, therefore, be a lavish occasion as well as a potential dramatic sporting event, while we should also expect former, local heroes such as the late, great Ayrton Senna.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

November concludes with another global event and another Formula One race too, as Dubai’s spectacular Abu Dhabi provides the backdrop for a potentially thrilling season finale. Hosted at the stunning and recently constructed Yas Marina Circuit in the heart of a city, it is set to be a truly explosive event that is reflective of the venue and the country as a whole.

This will only be the eighth time that the race has been run as a World title event, with the first instance having occurred as recently as 2009. Fans will be hoping that warring Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton are still contesting the title by the time that the race starts, as this will ensure fireworks and an event to suit the occasion.
