Chicago Marathon - USAExcellent trip to Chicago, staff are very professional and relate well to people. A trip well organised and excellent accommodation, looking at booking my 3rd trip away with Travelling Fit real soonI have been with Travelling Fit for 6 years completing 5 Marathons and a Half Marathon. They have a great team that provides a fantastic service that no other travelling Company in Australia can match. I can't see myself using any other Travelling Company, and will definitely use Travelling Fit again and again. Very Happy to endorse Travelling Fit as the Premier Travelling company in Australia. The 6 overseas Trips have more than met our expectations.The marathon majors are wonderful experiences and Chicago is no different. The thrill of the event and the support from the crowd is amazing. To be part of the Travelling Fit group and share information and stories with like-minded people in what is really an individual activity also cannot be underestimated.I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU! for organising such an awesome marathon event. Our accommodation was amazing, so close to everything and the steam room, pool, and spa came in handy after the race. Yes I got to run!! I was so excited after being so injured! I think I was smart at the right times ha ha. I would love to take a group from our gym over next year to run it as I think it’s one of the best marathons I have completed...Many thanks for organising a great trip to Chicago! The marathon was amazing - best I've run in terms of time and atmosphere!Firstly let me say again how happy I am with the service and communication provided by Travelling Fit for the Chicago Marathon. Travelling Fit again just do what is needed to fulfil my needs in achieving my goals. It is now my third overseas marathon with Travelling Fit and I can only sing praises for your service. I was only doing one marathon when I started, now I am doing 6! No doubt Travelling Fit is to blame for part of this. You make it too easy. It is always so comforting to know that Travelling provides a service that is worry free and simple in it's instructions for participants. The best part of this is that I understand the complexity of organising the event entry, accommodation, transport and needing us to feed information back to you to make it "look" simple. Getting information out of me is difficult enough.Thinus and I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with organizing the Chicago Marathon, and all the others for that matter. We had a great trip and everything ran really smoothly so thanks for all your recommendations.I did the Chicago Marathon with my husband as part of our honeymoon - it was amazing!!! This was my third marathon through Travelling Fit and I will certainly continue to use them in the future - so friendly, professional and organised! Thank you Travelling Fit!
Comrades Marathon - South AfricaComrades is one of the most life changing experiences any runner will compete in, the support on the course is second to none and the amount of cold drinks, variety of food and cold coke is outstanding. When you cross that finish line you know you have achieved the ultimate challenge. Then there is so much to see after the event in South Africa. A totally awesome place and event to go to. Thank you Travelling Fit.Now, everything has settled down and I am back at work I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with all the arrangements for Comrades Run. Mari-Mar, did a great job with the whole trip. I can highly recommend Travelling Fit to organise fellow athletes with her travelling arrangements. Special mention to you all for all your help and being patient with the thousands of questions I asked you. The rest of the holiday for Temara and I went without a hitch. I followed the itinerary you arranged for us and there were no problems. Thank you so much.I loved my holiday with a bloody big run thrown in. I'm definitely going back next year. The team at Travelling Fit were fabulous, a big thank you to everyone.... Please pass that on! It was truly an amazing day and I was even more moved to share it with some beautiful people who were also on the Traveling Fit tour. I've just signed up with you guys to do New York in Nov and I will probably call for you to do Comrades again.I’ve done 17 Comrades marathons before and always book accommodation, flights and buses myself. This was the first time I’ve used Travelling Fit to make additional bookings and it made such a difference. You never need to stress about getting to the start line in time. We were early at the start but was fantastic to sit down in a decent spot and just relax and reflect. It was fantastic to be part of a group in Durban rather than on your own. I am sure my success at this year’s Comrades is due to the fact that I was able to relax and leave Travelling Fit to organise my complete travel arrangements. I will recommend anyone to make use of Travelling Fit if they ever want to do the Comrades.I did it! I cannot express the absolute joy I felt crossing the Finish line after 89km's!! It was the most gruelling run I have ever done and the most amazing mental and physical experience. In fact from the minute I arrived I have witnessed the human spirit at its best. Everyone in every way has been committed to the spirit of Comrades!! I have to thank you Di and Travelling Fit again for their superb organisation of the Marathon from start to finish.I am still on a high from the event and after vowing I would not do it again I am seriously considering trying for 'back to back' runs. It has been a 16 month journey to get to my dream result and I recommend it to anyone who wants a challenge but it is more than just another race - it is a South African institution. Since running Two Oceans last year it became clear that in South Africa you are not considered a "real" runner unless you have run Comrades and, like the Melbourne Cup, it is truly an event that stops the nation. With 13 hours of live TV coverage and like New York everyone on the route come out to support you and the number of 'Aussie, Aussie, Aussie' cheers I got was amazing. I thought New York was an experience of lifetime but this has surpassed that. Thanks for all the organisation - it was a truly memorable experience
Great Ocean Road Running Festival - AustraliaI would just like to say a huge "thank you" for your amazing organisation for the Great Ocean Road Marathon on the weekend. The staff are fantastic to work with and are passionate about what they do. Thank you for making it super easy getting to that start line. I would 100% recommend you guys to everyone and I will defiantly be using you guys for future events. Personally, my weekend was amazing! I love this sport! Thank you again Travelling Fit for the outstanding service that you provide!!You and your team did the most awesome work for me and helped me get to the Great Ocean Road Running Festival, organising my full itinerary including accommodation and entry into my pet event, the Half Marathon It was truly the most amazing experience on many fronts that I got to share with my wife. You were all so genuinely helpful and really steered me, kept me focused, shared my enthusiasm, and none of the questions or queries were considered too dumb to answer. So, THANK YOUThe accommodation was awesome, the communication with you and the whole experience was 10/10. Thanks again for my Great Ocean Road Half Marathon experience
Great Wall Marathon - ChinaThe Great Wall Marathon was the best trip I have ever been on! I chose this trip as I read it was one of the hardest marathons in the world and it definitely lived up to the reputation. From the initial phone call to Travelling Fit who were super efficient and all details were laid out including all sightseeing tours. I liked that most meals and sightseeing included as it saves time and currency and knowing all is paid before leaving home. As well as the Travelling Fit staff we were looked after by 2 Chinese English speaking guides who always gave us great commentary on their homeland and always willing to help. Inspection of the 500 year old Great Wall was a highlight for me. Walking the 3.5km uneven steps, very narrow in places but the views spectacular. What made the trip so special was the friendship made for life, the support amongst us on to finish and the expertise of Travelling Fit to get us there safely and support us on this memorable journey. I would definitely recommend this trip of a lifetime as there is something for everyone.Our tour has almost come to an end. It was wonderful meeting Travelling Fit on the ground! The whole marathon experience was incredible - beyond expectations! Everyone was so friendly and encouraging. Leo and Frank did a great job keeping us informed and together! We met so many fantastic people and made what I'm sure will be long term friendships as well as a life-time of memories.I used the services of Travelling Fit to book my tour to the Great Wall Marathon in China. Right from the start, Travelling Fit were more than helpful with answering any questions I had about the itinerary options, right down to booking my flights and even calming my nerves prior to the event. Even though the trip was all about completing the Great Wall Marathon, i felt that the whole tour provided me the opportunity to capture so many amazing highlights of the country. The accommodation, mode of transport, restaurants for meals and optional tours offered were amazing. Great choices by Travelling Fit and the local guides. I am looking forward to my next adventure with Travelling Fit - I highly recommend the company from beginning to end. Thank you Travelling Fit for making my first real overseas experience so EPIC...
