Chicago Marathon - USAI 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 - AustraliaYou and your team did the most awesome work for me back in May 2018 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 an amazing experience and I will cherish the memories for the rest of my life.
I would highly recommend any runner to use Travelling Fit when they consider doing an Overseas Marathon. The service from the Travelling Fit team from time of booking to when we were in China was remarkable and they were really helpful. Thank you for all your hard work and keep up the good work. I can't wait to do another trip later on.I just want to say thank you for a fabulous week in China. I would not be lying but it was probably the best week of my life, I loved it. Thanks to the Travelling Fit representatives, our tour guides, bus drivers and anyone else who made it possible. To be honest when I boarded the plane in Brisbane I was shaking, I was like a 14 year old going on first date. I met some fabulous people, made new friends. I will be meeting you again I don’t know when yet, most of our group spoke about doing wall again in two years time. All the bestVahid and I would like to thank you very much for your superb/hard work prior and during the Great Wall Marathon tour in China couple of weeks ago. We had the most amazing experience of our life and without your great effort/help it would not have happened. so thank you, you should be very proud of yourselves; we are!The whole experience was unreal! The Travelling Fit crew were amazing, fun, super professional and great support cheering us on as they saw us all cross the finish line. The tips given in our Travelling pack were very useful. The tours and guides were excellent. I had a great time! Thank you!The whole week was a fantastic adventure. It's the first time I have done a trip like this and it was really nice to share it with people that all had a common goal. As hard as the run was I just love the wall and really appreciated the Travelling Fit folk at the finish line. Thanks to you all.I would like to say a big thanks to the Travelling Fit crew. They went out of their way to make sure we all had what we needed. It can't have been easy, particularly with the flight delays in getting to Beijing both for us runners and also for them. They were always available to us when we had questions, comments or requests. The trip to China and the Great Wall Marathon were incredible and it was something that will stay with me forever.We just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful experience of our trip to China and the Great Wall. We enjoyed it thoroughly and had a fantastic time. Thank you again for your professionalism, friendliness and kindness it was an amazing experience that we will never forget.
