Boston Marathon - USAThey say that what does not kill you makes you stronger. You all know the conditions we had in Boston and I am pretty certain Travelling Fit are under selling the major part they played in looking after us all. A big thank you from me but I know I speak from all the Travelling Fit runners when I say, without Travelling Fit’s help it would have been a lot harder. Honestly we were going to run in any conditions, but you walked us all to the bus pickup area and worst still stayed in the pouring rain and cold until the last finisher crossed the line, and made sure we were all OK throughout the night and the next day. Thank you!Boston marathon was a truly incredible experience. The pre -departure support from Travelling Fit was great, replies were prompt, questions always answered, I felt very well supported. The event itself and finishing the 6 world majors was amazing! Despite the cold weather, rain and snow it really was the best day. Thanks for helping make this happen Travelling Fit!We have just returned from Boston and completed the 6 majors with Travelling Fit. It has been an amazing journey over the last 5 years. Thanks to all the staff for making it so simple and enjoyable. I would do it all again if my wife would let meThe marathon. Where do I start? It was the most amazing experience. We were treated like royalty wherever we went in Boston. Everyone thanked us for coming to Boston and thanked us for running. It was very cold a few days before but on the day perfect (for me who hates cold). The crowd was enormous both sides of the road the whole 42k course probably dozens deep in most places all shouting and cheering. The Travelling Fit shirts were perfect. Many called out "go Australia" or "ozzie ozzie ozzie" or by our names. More importantly it was a very comfortable shirt to wear so congrats to those involved. I would not have missed it for the world.Thanks so much for organising everything in such a professional way & excellent service and for giving me the opportunity to compete & complete such a great event as the Boston Marathon.
Chicago Marathon - USAIt’s always amazing doing marathons with Travelling Fit and Chicago was no exception, you always feel part of a team. The hotel was located in a great part of town which certainly played a big part in making my trip to Chicago a great experience. A big thank you again to everyone at Travelling Fit.Excellent 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
