Thunder Dragon Marathon - BhutanNothing was too much trouble for Travelling Fit they were very helpful and informative, thanks so much. In regards to the actual event, all age groups were very well supported and the race director’s enthusiasm for the local runners was wonderful. The race was well organised and those involved in putting this event together were inspiring as well as his knowledgeable. The detailed, but encouraging description of the course was most reassuring as well as enjoyable.I returned yesterday from Bhutan and just wanted to send you a quick note saying it was such an amazing experience! The race was very very well organized and the whole tour was perfectly managed. I'm so very glad I found about this event via you guys. I had a very nice time with a Canadian and Kiwi couple, and our tour guide was excellent. I also won the women's half marathon 🙂For me personally the trip was fantastic. How could it not? Bhutan is such an incredible place. As expected the race was tough but it also exceeded expectations in every way possible. The route was magic, race day went off without a hitch and in the end I managed the find the finish line! (I missed a turn off so ended up running a fair bit more than I should have.. but that's all part of it). The 4 day hike beforehand was the perfect preparation and I'm certainly very glad I decided to add it to my trip. We were spoilt with perfect weather, had far too much food and I personally enjoyed having very knowledgeable guides with very good English.
Tokyo Marathon - JapanSome marathons can be difficult to gain entry into and Travelling Fit not only helps you to get to the start line, they make the whole experience easy and enjoyable so you can spend all your energy focusing on getting to the finish line.Having a company like Travelling Fit do the thinking for you on where to be at whatever time or having a social agenda organised for you, when you are the marathon runner, is brilliant especially when you travel on your own. Most of my marathon runs I have done through Travelling Fit as they are a brilliant travel agent. I recommend this company all the time to fellow runners. I also feel safe when I travel to marathon events as I know Travelling Fit look after you. Thank you Travelling Fit team!Running in the Tokyo Marathon with Travelling Fit is an experience I won't forget in a hurry. It's a flat world major marathon usually run in cool temperatures, making for a fast run. Events such as the City Tour, incorporating the Expo, and pre-marathon Pasta Party organised by the Travelling Fit team took all the stress out of the days leading up to the marathon and provided some unique Tokyo experiences. I also got to meet some fantastic people that I am sure to see again at the next Travelling Fit event I go to.I recently completed my third major marathon in Tokyo with Travelling Fit. Our Travelling Fit reps on the ground were extremely helpful and gave awesome tips in the days leading up to the marathon. It was also great to see the Travelling Fit team before crossing the finish line, it was great to see friendly faces...they were outside in the cold for hours and must have been freezing! I look forward to knocking off Boston and Berlin with Travelling Fit!!This was our 3rd Travelling Fit event and they again achieved a very high standard. If anyone wants to run an overseas marathon or the Australian Outback Marathon get onto these guys straight away. They look after your every need.Thankyou so much for another truly wonderful holiday and running travel experience. I cannot speak highly enough of how well you always look after us.Absolutely love running with Travelling Fit. You are made to really feel like part of a running community and the facebook groups are a wonderful platform to meet other runners. Travelling Fit reps are absolutely fantastic. They are organised, informative and their energy is infectious (just what you need in the lead up to a marathon). I would not hesitate to recommend Travelling Fit to anyone.My reservations about value for money when first thinking about this were blown away. Everything from the venue, to the food, to the entertainment was excellent. Sunroute Ariake Hotel was great, useful for the Expo, Felt a bit isolated from the city centre, but that was my choice. Your team is always prepared to help, however trivial the request. Arigato Team Travelling Fit. You put on an excellent show for TokyoThanks Travelling Fit in making it possible and so enjoyable to be able to travel with you every step of the way around the world to complete the 6 Star Marathon Majors. It was a very special day to be able to finish them all and get the medal with my good mate Rob Richards in Tokyo. We passed each other at the 36 km mark on the run, he was on the way to the finish & I was on the way out: We stopped hugged, took photos & said we got this now, such a good moment for us both, priceless in life. Thanks again for all your support.Now we are home and reflecting on a wonderful trip, Lynne and I would like to thank you and Travelling Fit for your superb organisation of the Tokyo Marathon. We loved our accommodation, the day trip to Mt Fuji and other places was great and the Tokyo tour and organisation of registration went very well. During our stay we were delighted to mix with a wonderful tour group who were all very friendly and supportive. The lunch on the day tour and the pre-race evening pasta meal was particularly good and offered a good chance to mix with other people. We appreciated your friendly welcome and work while we were in Tokyo. We were always clear about what was happening and the whole trip went exceptionally well. We look forward to signing up again for another Travelling Fit event. Very much appreciated.It was great having Travelling Fit Staff at the marathon, it makes everything so much easier & takes out all the worry when travelling, as it's looked after by you guys: Keep doing the awesome job your doing: You give service Plus. Thank You for making it such an enjoyable organised event for me: See you next time.I had a great time in Tokyo, it was an amazing marathon. The marathon itself was just fantastic, it was great coming across the finish line then getting a towel placed over your shoulders and having all the volunteers putting up there hand for a slap and saying well done. It was so well organised, thanks for your support during the event, hearing my name being called out during the marathon really spurred me on. I did a PB 3:41:13 I had taken 18 minutes off my previous PB for a marathon. Woo Hoo 🙂 All in all it was a great job done by you and Travelling Fit in organizing the whole trip. I look forward to doing another overseas marathon with Travelling Fit somewhere in the near future, take care of yourself and thanks again.Thank you so much for such a smooth running Tokyo event. Both Lee and myself were very impressed with the professionalism of Travelling Fit and how helpful you are. We loved the marathon and both had positive experiences.Out of the 10 marathons I have run, this was one of the best organized and most enjoyable events. A big thanks to you for the excellent organization of the travel arrangements. The proximity to the start line was really great as there was not much waiting and the return bus from the finish also worked very well. Looking forward to joining another Travelling Fit trip.Just a quick note to say thank-you and let you know that everything went perfect on our trip to the Tokyo Marathon. Once again Travelling Fit showed their true professionalism and we had no problems at all with our ground transportation, hotel and of course Karen’s participation in the marathon a very satisfying 3hours 43 minutes 12 sec. As you are aware Karen has now completed her 1st “Bucket List “completing all the world major marathons but I just wanted let you know we will definitely contact you again for future half marathon trips.Thank you for an amazing experience in Tokyo. Had the best time and you guys are amazing. Everything ran like clockwork and your organisation was remarkable. Loved spending time with you and some of the other Travelling Fit clients.
Two Oceans Marathon - South AfricaThe Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town, organized by Travelling Fit, was an absolute winner and in a great location, close to the start and not too far from the finish. It was clean friendly and safe. I can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Cape Town either for the Two Oceans or just for a holiday. The race was great especially as I was able to run the first 28km with my son.
