Antarctica Marathon - AntarcticaOur Antarctica trip was the trip of a lifetime. I can honestly say it has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Words can't do justice to how incredible this trip is. From the vastness of the white continent, the cuteness of the penguins and their chicks, the whales so close you can smell and touch them, the seals, the blue coloured icebergs - to the cold, fresh air and freezing polar plunge to the warmth and camaraderie of fellow runners and new friends, it was incredible. We went to Antarctica to run a marathon and left in awe of this amazing continent with its stunning, majestic beauty. Thank you to Travelling Fit for organising this magnificent experience. It was a dream come true. We are so fortunate to have visited Antarctica. Put it on your bucket list - it will live in your heart forever.Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for organising our trip, we didn't have a single problem the whole time we were away. Everyone involved in the marathon including the runners were amazing and a joy to spend time with. I have never seen so many hugs and tears shared when we disembarked the ship in Ushuaia. Why you would choose to do one of the other "fly in/fly out" events is beyond me!You all are the best! I raved about you on the Antarctica trip so hopefully you'll get some more clients out of it. The other tour groups are good but across the board Travelling Fit is sensational. Thanks for all your help and I'm already looking forward to mom and my next trips with you!
Athens Marathon, the Authentic - GreeceThank you for all your organisation of my trip to Athens. It was amazing! Running into that stadium was wonderful, after 42km my feet suddenly seemed to be gliding it felt so good. All the tours were excellent. I would recommend the Plaka Hotel to any traveller to Athens, it was great.We have only positive feedback! The service provided was brilliant - particularly when we were asking for 'unique' entry arrangements for the Athens Marathon. It was wonderful considering we did all of the arrangements via email. Travellling Fit found and arranged additional flights for us and advised us on some Europe based travel. We will certainly travel with Travelling Fit in the future!
Auckland Marathon - New ZealandJust to let you know that all went very well. My time was the best in about 4 years so definitely worthwhile. The course is quite scenic and was relatively cool, with a bit of wind and some rain towards the end. It was a great marathon to finish the year on. Once again, thanks for organising at such short notice.
Australian Outback Marathon - AustraliaIt was so nice to meet you, Mari-Mar, Michael and the rest of the Travelling Fit team at Ayers Rock and we just want to thank you once again for such a wonderful trip.
Running the Australian Outback Marathon was so very special and it truly was an amazing experience and location that neither of us will ever forget. Who could forget all that red earth, sand and of course those sand dunes. Brent and I had such a fabulous time away made even better by sharing it with the wonderful Travelling Fit team.
It was such a well organised event from the minute we arrived in Ayers Rock and continued right through until we left. The passion, enthusiasm,expertise and friendliness of the whole team was just incredible, so thanks again.To the whole crew at Travelling Fit....
Thank you for the most awesome trip. It was awe-inspiring, emotional, fun, full on and just genuinely fantastic! The family feel to such a world-class event is brilliant! I've never been to another event where newly made friends see you off at the end of your journey!!! Thank you all again for the organisation and planning. Please put me down for the AOM again, I'll be coming back to do the 6!The weekend was probably the best weekend I’ve had in Australia since I arrived here almost 5 years ago. From the moment that I landed to being dropped off at the airport, I wanted for nothing and everything had been thought of by you guys. The tours that I went on were incredible and so well organised. The hotel was spot on, with a really relaxed atmosphere and decent breakfast.
The marathon itself was easily my favourite one that I have done to date (and that was #9). The setting is just magical and the atmosphere on course and at the start/finish line was amazing. It was a pleasure to be in the company of the Travelling Fit team in the Outback Pioneer Pub the night after the marathon, hearing stories of the day and generally having a good time. The clientele at the event also contributed to the amazing energy of the weekend, talking to people about marathons in North Korea and South Africa was brilliant. The ‘Sounds of Silence’ Celebration dinner was an epic way to cap off a truly magical weekend.
I’ve been raving about the weekend to anyone that will listen this week and have already started thinking about whether I can do it all again next year. To you all, thank you so much for an incredible experience. I’ll sum up my experience with this: after 4 hours running in that heat, I’m bouncing across the finish line with a massive smile on my face!!!I wanted to write to you to say a massive thank you for an amazing experience in Uluru over the weekend. The Outback marathon was unreal!!! I had such a great time. It was a wonderful, intermit event. The Highlight of the race was having my name announced running through the finish line, that was super super special THANK YOU!! A big shout out to the photographers, they were so friendly and it was great having their smiling faces out on the course encouraging me all the way, and the photos I received today are amazing, they capture the moment so well.I hope you have recovered after all the excitement of the Outback Marathon. I just wanted to thank you and Travelling Fit for your generosity, professionalism and support. I am looking forward to my next adventure with Travelling Fit.Can I take the opportunity to thank you all at travelling fit for a wonderful experience last week in the outback event. We had a great time and really appreciated all your care. A few good memories that will be high on the recall list for ever. Well done.My sister, Lindsay Holland, and I would like to thank you both for the amazing event that you organised in the Outback. We were also both so pleased that we changed back to the full marathon and, although we were Walkers, we did not come last! The organisation was superb. The events that you arranged, especially the Celebration Dinner, were fantastic. The atmosphere of the Marathon, with such friendly volunteers manning the aid stations, was very enjoyable. It was not just a Marathon - it was a 4 day Experience! I would definitely recommend this Marathon to anyone looking for a marathon 'with a difference'.Just arrived back yesterday from the Australian Outback Marathon and I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all at Travelling Fit for such a well organized and wonderful event. From the first enquiry through to the actual event it has been a pleasure to associate with all concerned. Apart from the actual marathon the highlight would have to be the Sounds of Silence Dinner Celebration Dinner - a beautiful night.Just wanted to drop you a line to say what an experience we had over the past 4 days. After 8 months of training my big day had arrived. Not knowing how these events run l was quite nervous leading up the run, but as soon as l hopped of the bus in the morning with the music blaring my body relaxed and before I knew it l was off running my first half marathon. I guess what l am trying to say is that this is one of the best experiences we have had in life and to share it with so many other people especially the kids in the photos we are so thankful for yourself and the whole Travelling Fit crew who made this experience for us pretty much a once in a lifetime opportunity. This will be something we will never forget.Just a quick note of my appreciation for all your help and assistance with coordinating my booking for this year’s AOM. It was great to meet you finally and put a face to the name after months of emailing. I think you and the entire team at Travelling Fit did an awesome job in coordinating and keeping happy some 500 odd runners and supporters, which I know is no easy feat! I hope you got some downtime when you returned on Monday but I would have to say this was THE best organised event/tour I have ever done – all the thinking was made for me and it was fantastic. I look forward to doing another event with Travelling Fit in the near future.My girlfriend and I recently completed the world famous Australian Outback Marathon. Although it has been a couple of weeks since the run, we just wanted to say congratulations and thank you once again for organising such a wonderful event! We both had an unforgettable time in the Northern Territory and can't wait for the next run. The organisation and service provided by Travelling Fit was world class. All of the Travelling Fit staff and representatives were friendly and approachable, providing a friendly smile at every opportunity. They are to be highly commended for putting on such a tremendous event! A special mention has to go to our travel consultant Lee. He provided us with all of the relevant information in the lead up to the event, and entertained us with some great stories during the 'Silence of Sound' Celebration dinner. The trip provided such a unique experience - one we were privileged to share with other runners from around the globe. They say marathoners are a 'special' breed and they are not wrong. We met so many inspiring people along the way....prompting us to re-challenge ourselves once again. A day after we got home we booked our next marathon in Adelaide in late August. We will continue to spread the word on what an amazing service Travelling Fit provided us along the way. All the best and thanks again.I wanted to email and say thank-you for one of the best (in fact maybe it is the best) races I have ever run. It was an exceptional experience and the organisation by Travelling Fit was superb. You guys really did think of EVERYTHING and I have never run a race where so much was included from the meal the night before to a really good running t-shirt (usually I wear the t-shirt as pjs!) to all the food at the event and the wonderful support and camaraderie. It was a very special event and definitely a worthy bucket list adventure!As we return to ‘normal’ life today it would be remiss of me not to take some time to send a quick note regarding our experience over the last five days. I made the decision to sign up for Australian Outback Marathon last August and after some procrastination and in decision, I was lucky to have a friend decide to come along on the journey who was super organised and took hold of the booking process. While I had imagined it would be an amazing adventure nothing quite prepared me for what I would gain from the experience and a lot of this comes down to the amazing organisation of the event and your team on the ground. A particular thanks to our amazing hotel liaison! We were made to feel welcome from the outset at the airport and the delivery of the race packs at the hotel, especially since we were the only two to arrive at our hotel on that flight and were a day early! The accommodation was more than adequate, the meals were fantastic and even catered for a fussy eater, the extra activities were great and another opportunity to meet others. The race briefing and opening ceremony while serving an important purpose of the pre race preparation, created a general excitement among the group. The general friendliness and engagement with the other competitors encapsulated the whole experience. We certainly met some amazing people on the way including the locals. While everyone has their own motivation and reason for completing the race, I hope they all take from it as much as we did! Thanks again and who knows we may be back one day!
Bagan Temple Marathon - MyanmarAbsolutely fantastic experience. So glad to have competed in this event, despite the 42 degree temp on the day. Burma was amazing and the Tour Guides who we dealt with were extremely informative, personable, fun and professional. We met some great people from around the world who we have continued to keep in touch with. I highly recommend this event, it was well organised, a true adventure marathon, great to experience Burma before it becomes another Thailand. For me the highlight of the trip also was the Balloon ride over the Bagan Temples, as well as finishing the race!!!
