We want to make your running dreams come true… but most importantly we want you to travel with confidence; feel part of a community, and have an experience, not just a race!
More than just marathon travel specialists , the team at Travelling Fit have turned our passion for running Marathons, Half Marathons and Ultras in some of the most exciting destinations across the globe into a profession – and love helping others like us by coordinating fully escorted trips with like-minded individuals. We want to work with you to design your race experience, so it doesn’t matter if you are a solo traveller, are travelling with your family or have convinced some friends to come on tour, you’ve come to the right place.
Using our extensive industry knowledge and real-life experience, when you book an exclusive Marathon package through Travelling Fit you can have peace of mind knowing our packages are designed specifically with the runner in mind. Our service also includes a 24-hour emergency contact number in case you need to contact us at any time, from anywhere in the world.
You’ll also notice some of our larger events have additional services included in their packages; such as meet and greet functions, private transfers and group warm up runs in the lead up to race day. Each package is outlined on the event’s individual page and even if you are travelling with a supporter who isn’t racing but wants to participate in these events, we can arrange their package (minus the race entry) too.
With that in mind, we appreciate that your friendship circle might not all share that same passion for long distance running as you do, but that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Closer to your event we will connect you with others on your journey, creating a little community where you can get to know each other prior to travelling, and familiarise yourself with the adventure that awaits.
It’s our goal to create that once in a lifetime moment, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
Sometimes it can take years and months preparing for an event, so take that first step.
Sometimes the unplanned happens, so we recommend you take out Payment Protection and/or Travel Insurance as soon as you book your travel package. Travel Insurance is not included in any of our Travel Packages, so we do recommend adding in the Payment Protection Plan when paying in instalments. You can find out more about this here.
Whilst we don’t coordinate training for Marathons, we can point you in the right direction with a couple of our trusted contacts.
As everyone is on their own travel journey and responds differently to a new environment, it’s hard to provide a blanket answer to this question. In our experience, we do recommend giving yourself three to four days before a race to get a good night’s sleep in a destination which is why most of our packages are designed like this, but you know your body best.
Wear the shoes that you train in and are going to be the most comfortable – don’t save those new treads for the race!
Firstly, you’re never travelling alone – you’re travelling with us! But yes, if there is the opportunity for you to pair up with another solo traveller to save costs then we will advise you on this option; we just can’t guarantee this until everyone is confirmed for your tour.
Absolutely! We have a runner package and a supporter package for our tours, so with the supporter package they will receive all the benefits that a runner gets, minus the race entry (and transport to the race start if that is included in your particular package). This means that everything else, such as dinners, tours or functions, supporters are welcome to join and celebrate with the main group!
As per our terms and conditions, it is a condition of booking a package with Travelling Fit that you take out travel insurance. If you make the decision not to take out cover, you must notify us in writing prior to the trip.
Whilst you don’t have to, we absolutely recommend you have Travel Insurance. If you make the decision not to take out cover, you must notify us in writing prior to the trip.
They sure are! There is no additional cost to have your shirt personalised. Our Travelling Fit shirts distinguish your group in a crowd – wear it with pride!
Why wouldn’t you! When you’re on the home stretch and fatigue has set in, there’s nothing more uplifting than hearing someone call out your name! Particularly with the big city Marathons, the crowds are always so supportive, so let them cheer you on!
Any ones we finish! Seriously we can’t choose – they are all uniquely special!
