New York City Marathon - USAThank you sooooo much to you and your team for organising my NYC Marathon experience. It was truly the best thing I have done in recent memory, and I will remember it always. Not only the event, but also your company’s organisation and delivery exceeded my expectations in every way – faultless! I am now highly motivated to run some other ‘Majors’. Thank you again Mari-Mar, it was great to meet you, and I look forward to attending further events in the near future.The Travelling Fit crew in New York were absolutely fantastic, so easy to talk to and had great experiences to share. I love, love, LOVED the event and I’m incredibly grateful to have had Travelling Fit experience and knowledge, as well as simplifying things like transport to the start village etc. It really took a lot of worry out of the trip, and I didn’t have to stress about where to be and when. Loved the Travelling Fit cheer squad at mile 14!I had a fantastic experience with all Travelling Fit staff I encountered, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others (or to do another event through them myself!). They provided exceptional support and advice while allowing me my own experience. An amazing and special experience that was enhanced in so many ways by booking through this company.My wife, 10 month old daughter and i had a great experience with Travelling Fit for the NYC Marathon. All the hosts were great and really took the time to get to know you. Overall a very professional company with great customer focused serviceI enjoyed every minute of my Marathon from running through Central Park with Rob De Castella and his group to the celebration drinks. Travelling Fit definitely take the stress out of not having to be worried about getting to the event. The team of staff are brilliant.I’ve carried a long term injury so this was never going to be a PB, just a very hard slog to get it done. The atmosphere and seeing those Travelling Fit shirts along the way and support at the 14 mile mark, helped me get to the finish. Thanks again and totally recommend Travelling Fit.Travelling Fit was recommended to us when my wife and I set ourselves on course to run the New York City Marathon, our first ever marathon. The communication we received during the journey was clear and concise, our accommodation was well located, spacious and great value. The logistics for travel to the event was a blessing for everyone. The Travelling Fit team were accessible during the event and ready to answer any queries or questions you may have. Highly recommended.We found Travelling Fit did an excellent job in completely organising every aspect of Georgia and my entry into the TCS New York City Marathon. It was hassle free, well organised and all we had to do was turn up, go to the functions, catch the bus and run! Travelling Fit are veterans in organising direct entry into world Marathons. We have been unsuccessful in 4 ballots to do the NYC Marathon, so we bit the bullet and engaged Travelling Fit and we are both glad we did. Thank you for a wonderful experience, meeting fantastic people, and we look forward to using your services again.A short note of thanks for your part in the organisation of New York from Rob and I. Just fantastic! We had a brilliant time and couldn’t fault Travelling Fit throughout any stage. The team on the ground did a fantastic job. Enjoyed the Hudson Hotel. For such a busy period for the hotel and accepting that most hotel rooms in New York are small, it catered for our needs perfectly. The location was excellent, staff helpful and the coffee downstairs was pretty good too.
The marathon in itself - WOW! What an atmosphere. Found it very tough, but I guess having never run a marathon before, what was I expecting. There were a few kilometres there I certainly didn’t enjoy it, but I got through that and didn’t stop running - so proud of that. Drinks after - great. Continue to do that with your runs. Gives the runners somewhere to go and chat with other runners and enjoy a very well-deserved celebratory drink. Loved the early Friday run with Rob de Castella, a great way to clear the cobwebs in our legs after a long flight. Many thanksMy 2018 NYC marathon experience with Travelling Fit was, as always, terrific. The Travelling Fit team makes everything seamless and so easy.
Nothing is too much trouble for any of them, right down to the very helpful Tim, on day 1, actually escorting me to the nearest subway station, making sure that I had my ticket and that I was facing in the right direction!
Travelling Fit even provided an Aussie cheer zone at Mile 14 on the course and waited for the slower runners: now, THAT'S dedication!I want to say that this is my first experience with Travelling Fit and also first international marathon. My experience with Travelling Fit has been great since the first phone call and all the support up to now. My housemate introduced me to Travelling Fit when I was chatting to her about how I may get a spot for the Tokyo Marathon initially but now I get to run the NYC Marathon! I want to send special thank you to all the team for helping me with the sign up etc and for being very prompt and responsive to my queries. I also want to let Colin (from the Indigenous Marathon Foundation) know that what he shared in the meet and greet was really inspiring for me and I hope he can continue to inspire many more. Also to Rob de Castella for what he said in his speech during the meet and greet...it was also inspiring for me. My sincerest appreciation again and I will definitely do more marathons in the future with Travelling Fit once I'm fully recovered.This is the second time I have travelled with Travelling Fit. I did the Great Wall Half Marathon and now the NYC marathon. I will likely do more with them. They are great on the organisational side and logistics. Stress free travel and deliver what they promise.Will definitely go with Travelling Fit again to run marathons. It takes out all the worry and stress of organising a place to stay, the transfers to the race and opportunity to catch up with fellow runners before and after the event. I made some great friends and planning another race with them and Travelling Fit. A great team who were very supportive and helpful, not only with travel plans but race tips. Thanks Travelling Fit team.The Travelling Fit NYC Marathon package met and exceeded! When you can go to a roof top bar and share a few drinks and quality nibbles, then hit the dance floor with new found friends after your first marathon ....I felt 18 not 59...life is good 🙂 Seriously, the team managed to walk the line between professionalism and friendship so brilliantly. The functions that were organised were quality events and the IMF lunch was a highlight. Thank you for taking my non-runner husband under your wing on race day. It was a highlight for him and it was sooo good to see you all there, right when I needed you. Thank you Travelling Fit. You made a dream come true for me....my first marathon was a wonderful experience because all I had to do was run because you had it all covered. I have nothing but great things to say about Travelling Fit. NYC won't be my last, I am training again and looking forward to the next adventure with you all.This was my second trip with Travelling Fit, and probably won't be my last! The Travelling Fit team made participating in a marathon run so smoothly. From the time I signed up the communication and support was amazing, and the team were so encouraging and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Travelling Fit.This was a bucket list event for my wife and I.... something we have dreamt of for a very long time. The team at Travelling Fit were instrumentally in bringing this to life and making it a truly memorable event for us!!In order to motivate myself, I needed a big goal, so after googling most iconic marathons I decided to do the New York Marathon. Gaining entry into New York is difficult and I needed to have a guaranteed spot as my goal needed a time line. Travelling Fit were able to offer me guaranteed entry so I could turn my dream into a reality. Travelling Fit provided a wonderful experience, arranging quality accommodation near the finish line, transport to the start line which is a logistical nightmare and a party to celebrate achieving my goal. The New York Marathon was everything I hoped for, it was something I will talk about for the rest of my life and Travelling Fit played a huge role in making it possible. Id highly recommend both New York Marathon and Travelling Fit.It is fantastic to hear that the entire Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) Squad finished this year’s New York City Marathon. I ran with one of them for a short while on the day. Their stories were all incredibly heartfelt. IMP is a snowball of humanity at its best. I have copied others on this email as all will want to hear this wonderful news. Congratulations to Travelling Fit for aligning yourselves with IMP and thank you for the opportunity to be introduced to it. I am going to continue to support IMP. CheersHi everyone at Travelling Fit. I just want to say a huge thank you for such brilliant organisation of the New York Marathon. The accommodation and organisation were perfect. The actual race was incredible. Much better then I could have ever imagined. If ever I think about doing another event I will definitely go with Travelling Fit. Thanks you !!!!I have just completed the New York City marathon. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful Travelling Fit team which I had the pleasure of meeting whilst in New York. They were a wealth of information and support. The care they showed to all runners was exceptional. I would also like to mention the great support shown to me by the Travelling Fit staff back in the office. Being a novice at the whole thing they showed great patience with me. I am now looking at my next challenge and it will be through Travelling Fit after this magnificent experience. Thank you!
