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 - GreeceI wanted to let you know what a wonderful operator you are working with in Greece. Obviously, you have high standards and insist on them in the people you work with. We were very self-sufficient while in Athens, but it was good to have the intel from the locals. We ventured off on foot and never once did we feel uncomfortable or worry about our safety. I’ve been to Athens before but didn’t know about half of these local-favourites that we were told about. It was great information to have. I have travelled with other tour operators for destinations all over the globe. I wanted to let you know how your organization shined above others. I’m so thankful your company had us taken care of. Thanks for a great adventure and an amazingly well-done trip.Lin and I just wanted to say how enjoyable our trip was to Greece last month and how smoothly the marathon part all went. We need to say what a great job your local representative did on behalf of us all. She was always available and when contacted responded very promptly and very professionally. (Even when we threw a couple of curved balls at her!) The actual marathon was a great success, the Gods smiled on all runners, and what was going to be a warm run was tempered with light rain at the start and overcast skies through the entire event. I must say thank you for the Travelling Fit running tops. The material they are made from is fabulous, breaths really well and is as light as a feather. Anyway, thank you to all the crew, we sure hope to see you at the next Travelling Fit adventure.The Team at Travelling Fit were friendly and helpful from the moment I made contact with them. The Marathon package I purchased through them over-exceeded my expectations and had an amazing time. The ground staff were exceptional and could not fault them. All the tours I did were professionally run, with great guides & I was able to see the highlights of Greece - I had a great time. Everything went like clockwork.I received outstanding service from Travelling Fit and a totally stress free experience especially as the hotel I stayed at was in a great location. I continued on to do the Classic Tour of Greece after completing the Athens Marathon and I must say that the guides on the tour were exceptional. I had a great experience. Thank you!Thank 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 - AustraliaIn 2019 I took a chance and booked for the Australian Outback Marathon with Travelling Fit. I was a bit apprehensive about bringing my son and his young family along with me as I felt the kids might have to miss out on a lot of the "adult" activities. I was wrong. This was THE MOST AMAZING and mind-blowing experience we have had as a family. I can't praise the whole trip highly enough. The food was absolutely amazing, staff were great, the accommodation was perfect and the race was unbelievable. I get emotional when I think about it, and can't imagine having another experience like this again. Everyone loved it, the food was AMAZING, activities and transfers were so well organized, there was plenty to do and it really wasn't that cold! If you have the chance to do this or are undecided, do it! I'll be going back. Thank you Travelling Fit for one of the top ten experiences of my life so far xxxI just want to thank you and the rest of the Travelling Fit team for a fantastic weekend last week at Yulara. I had the best weekend that I have ever had. I have never been to a place that everyone made me feel so welcome. It was the first time that I've been to the Northern Territory so the heat,flies,sand and camels eating our signs made it so special to me. I loved all the jokes from everyone, even the bus driver who was taking us to the airport told us that we was going to Darwin and the lady bus driver on the drop on drop off bus told us at a stop at Uluru and people running towards her that if she drives forward they would run harder so then she drives forward. There was so many more. I loved all the dinners. I don't eat out much so they made me feel special. The marathon yes was hard but I loved every minute of it. It didn't help that it was snowing at home for the 2 weeks before. I do want to run it again and I would like it the same you couldn't fault it. Thanks so muchThank you and your team for an amazing Australian Outback Marathon trip. We had a fantastic weekend and it was lovely to meet you. The support Travelling Fit and the Outback Marathon team provided was touching. I would like to applaud you all for the fantastic environment you have nurtured over race years. The camaraderie and encouragement between runners and support staff was unbelievable and unforgettable.Three years of dreaming about coming to Uluru and competing in an event at the Outback marathon finally realised. Drove with friends from Qld to Yulara. The event and set up exceeded all my expectations . First time entering a half marathon - the location was stunning and the friendliness of staff and the organisation of the whole event excellent. Standout - Uluru at Sunrise, the Field of Light & the beauty of the event course .Australian Outback Marathon 2018 - a magical experience even before landing.
That it is different from all the others that I have done I understand it by looking out the window, seeing Uluru, the sacred mountain, which stands out, alone, in a fantastic landscape. The organization thinks of everything, attentive to any problems and putting you at ease as if I had done with them this marathon dozens of times (just do not know how they always remember my name). The race is unique, especially when after 20 km the group breaks and practically you find yourself running alone in a magical environment, which changes colour with the passing of the hours. An incredible atmosphere, on land that in some short stretches is sandy but never ever difficult, with everyone ready to incite you and always with a smile.
Definitely the most beautiful and the most different I've ever done!A dream that has come true. Before leaving for the Australian outback, I would never have imagined running in these fairy-tale landscapes, on this red earth, with a cobalt blue sky, savouring the scent of absolute freedom, in the silence of nature, where the only noise was that of my breath. It was a journey with myself and I will always carry this experience inside myself. Perfect organisation, impeccable with people who, with an incredible passion and a unique kindness, gave me the opportunity to experience this indelible experience.
In the name of smiles and happiness, simply thank youCan I first of all say what an absolutely brilliant time I had in Uluru this week. The entire package from start to finish, including the accommodation, the event itself and all of the add-ons were all first class. To you and the rest of the team, thank you all for your encouragement, hard work and professionalism, which is what made the event absolutely unforgettable.It 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!!!
