Vicki Turner, VIC
I had a great experience travelling to Beijing for the Great Wall Marathon. If you are considering doing this Event, just do it, you won't be disappointed! I thought the 7 day/6 night tour, was great. It gave us the opportunity to experience the Country and tourist attractions in a group (especially in a country where English is not widely spoken). I felt safe the whole time I was there. The whole trip was amazing and Travelling Fit were a fantastic tour company to book through, nothing was ever too much trouble. Whilst we were away, our Travelling Fit tour leader, was very helpful and friendly as was our local Beijing guide, who was a wealth of knowledge. The Great Wall Marathon was everything I expected plus more. I would highly recommend Travelling Fit to all my family and friends.

Travelling Fit again came up trumps with a fun but challenging event in the place where Magic is there for everyone. This was an amazing event, totally different from the usual marathon races, Here the runs were more focused on having fun rather than PBs and I loved having no pressure. The marathon especially was great despite the weather. The hotel was well positioned and the rooms very spacious. I had a great time visiting Disney after the races and would recommend this to anyone, old or young.

Travelling fit is a company geared to customer satisfaction. Not only do they offer a range of world class and exceptional destinations and events, but if any problems arise (rarely) they do everything possible to resolve them. They are wonderful to deal with. Use them for a trouble free and enjoyable experience.

Travelling Fit has been responsible for some of the greatest race experiences of my life, and this one is no exception - in fact, this one tops them all, and that's no mean feat! From the team's great coordination (and crisis management!), Jack our truly terrific guide & his fascinating tours, and the warm and friendly atmosphere, there is no better way to experience adventure races around the world than with these guys.

I think Travelling Fit are exceptional . They are fantastic with information and making you feel supported from the moment you book an event until you head off home after it .Always answering your queries no matter how trivial they are. The Travelling Fit Team were wonderful in their encouragement in Boston and just knowing they would get you to where you needed to be certainly takes the stress out of it.

Paul Harman – VIC
I couldn't recommend Travelling Fit highly enough. I travelled with my family and we were all welcomed to the TCS London Marathon and felt completely immersed in the group. We love the addition of the shirts, the group runs, preparation dinner and the celebration drinks. The hotel was beautifully positioned. As usual when travelling with Travelling Fit the organisation of getting to the Marathon is seamless and you always get much ore than you expect with the Travelling fit team. You always feel like you are running as part of the Australian team. It is wonderful to share it with some many.

This was my first major and first marathon with travelling fit. Being a busy business owner I benefit from having all of the hard work done. I found the overall experience to be a very pleasant one. A massive thank you to Travelling fit for making my first Major such an enjoyable, stress-free and memorable experience. Looking forward to my next 5 majors!

Amazing experience once again by the Travelling Fit team. Definitely wasn't the result I was hoping for with this Marathon, but the support on course from the other Travelling Fit runners and from the  Travelling Fit support crew was so uplifting and got me through a tough day. Can't thank you all enough for the experiences that you provide for both Tim and I. We love our Travelling Fit tours and the people we meet and catch up with along the way!

Everything was perfect. All the Information provided to runners was tops, transport from the finish back to the hotel, pre- dinner, the jackets. Always given 100% not only for runners but for companions. I loved Tokyo and I am looking forward to running London and New York with Travelling Fit.

Leanne Hall, SA
The experience was simply excellent. Travelling Fit did an exceptional job in getting me there. Transfers to and from the airport were great. My hotel (Plaka) was in a great location and was within walking distance to many tourist sites. Great service from the hotel staff and a view of the Parthenon from my window! There is a lot of ‘up’ in this event, but I made it to the finish line in 6:02. I was so proud I was choking back tears as I ran into the famous Panathenaic Stadium. It is a day I will never forget.

It was well organised and the team on the ground were extremely helpful and it took the stress away knowing everything has been taken care of. I'm definitely going to use Travelling Fit again because they proved to be reliable. The hotel location was perfect too. Walking distance from shops, restaurants, and the finish line. It was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. Great work Travelling Fit!

I can’t recommend Travelling Fit enough. My experiences have been fabulous from start to finish. Well organised, great communication and excellent support in the days before and on race day. It can be stressful travelling for a race, but Travelling Fit takes away a lot of that stress leaving you to enjoy your race day and celebrate the hard work and training that have gone into it. I have made great running friends on both trips and I’m already looking forward to the next one! Thank you 🙂

Karyn Freeman, VIC
The international marathon experience brings with it nerves, excitement, questions, jetlag and more so having the team at Travelling Fit looking after us with such expertise, care and thoughtfulness means I don't have to worry about anything but running. And I love bumping into the friends I've made along the way.

I love being a part of the Travelling Fit events. I did New York Marathon last year and loved every minute of it. This year in Chicago, i didn’t think I would be able to run, as I got so sick prior, but it was great to run into the Travelling Fit team during this time who really encouraged me to keep positive. It was so great. And I ran and finished. I was so stoked. Thank you guys!

Well organised and very useful information from the Traveling Fit team who were with us. We enjoyed the river cruise which was also a lovely 3 course lunch. Chicago is a surprisingly nice city. Walked/trained to the expo with the Travelling Fit team, again well organised and supported hubby to do the 5k the day before. Nice hotel overlooking the river and well situated for Chicago downtown and The Loop. This is my 4th trip with Travelling Fit and it was a good as all the others.

We are super pleased to have been able to complete our World Major Marathon journey with Travelling Fit. The team has always been super helpful and great at what you do. For busy people like us, taking care of the logistics pre-race has been amazing and a godsend. We also always appreciate your support over the last 10 years for the other marathons both as a runner and spectator! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you.

Susan Brial, VIC
Berlin was my sixth marathon. I am a late bloomer, and every event has been made possible for me by the team at Travelling Fit. All that is ever required of me is to sign up, turn up and run. My experience with Travelling Fit has been the same since my first run with them 6 years ago -everyone team member has, without exception, been absolutely friendly, professional and supportive - always. I would never be able to pursue my 6 star dreams (four down, two to go) without them and I am profoundly grateful and beyond satisfied. Simply couldn't imagine a better experience.

Naina Jerath, NSW
The Travelling Fit team were fantastic hosts and very helpful and cheery. They got everyone involved and the vibe was great. Travelling Fit organized the hotel location really well and it was easy to travel and tour from there as the train station was very near as well as it being close to various museums that were walkable. Good shopping too, esp groceries and Brandenburg Gate! Great itinerary and the travelling wallet is great as well as the face book closed group as one can learn a wealth of information plus form some bonds with other runners prior to meeting them. Well done!

Greg Heilbron, NSW
The Petra Desert Marathon is a unique event in a most unique setting . It is just as much an experience as an event and, like me, it seemed that many participants were immersed in the remarkable history and the spectacular landscape of Petra for much of their race journey. It was a very tough run, but the awesome distractions made it so enjoyable. Jordan has so much history to discover, and the genial tour guide was always keen to help us understand his country's significant and fascinating past.

Thank you Travelling Fit for making my London Marathon experience amazing. Literally the only thing I had to do myself was train and turn up - you did everything else and went out of your way to make it special. The Hotel was in a fantastic location and the rooms, meals, facilities and service were great. You made race day simple and the after party was the perfect way to debrief with other runners and celebrate with supporters over champagne!

Rob Lowe, NSW
I was really surprised by just how passionate and personal the Travelling Fit staff were in helping me on my lengthy journey toward MDS. Despite years of Covid delay, they continued to care about every practical detail and go above and beyond in terms of adding to the experience itself. I'd describe them less as a niche travel agency and more as a boutique experience provider. My MDS experience (which I count as one of the most impactful of my life) wouldn't have been the same without them.

Alex Morgan, QLD
From the moment I registered to the moment I left for my connecting flight home the support & guidance was incredible.  Anything I had in my mind as a first timer was put at ease my Mari Mar & The Travelling Fit team. Honestly, you prepared me perfectly for what lay ahead from kit to food, training etc. I also enjoyed the chance to see Morocco prior to the event which many others don’t get. I’m also now in the no poles camp. I carried them the whole time and used them for about 500m of the 250+ Km. Thank you, I really did appreciate it.

Now the incredible experience that was the London Marathon is over I can't wait to get onto the next one! The Travelling Fit tag line is "Run The World", and after 5 marathons with TF and at least 5 more planned, I can't think of a better description or a better group of people to do it with. Thank you again for making it fun, seamless and effortless and especially for making my dream closer to a reality.

I've taken several trips with Travelling Fit and have loved the experience each time. Running an international marathon is an amazing experience made better by doing it in a group atmosphere that Travelling Fit provide. The pre and post race meals and celebrations are fabulous and you get to share with others in the group. Wearing the Travelling Fit tops during the race make it easy to see others in the group. The Travelling Fit support on course is very motivating.

This is the third marathon I have done with Travelling Fit, and although all my previous experiences have been great this one (so far) was by far the best and most memorable. Lots of fun is the best way to describe it. The group was fantastic, the Travelling Fit Team were very responsive, communicative and above all personable. Their support on the course was also very much appreciated! Travelling Fit listen to the feedback, take it onboard and do their upmost to make the overall experience pleasant and memorable. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Travelling Fit to anyone that is interested in buying a package through them.

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful operator you are working with in Greece.  Obviously, you have high standards and insist on them in the people you work with. We were very self-sufficient while in Athens, but it was good to have the intel from the locals. We ventured off on foot and never once did we feel uncomfortable or worry about our safety. I’ve been to Athens before but didn’t know about half of these local-favourites that we were told about.  It was great information to have. I have travelled with other tour operators for destinations all over the globe.  I wanted to let you know how your organization shined above others. I’m so thankful your company had us taken care of. Thanks for a great adventure and an amazingly well-done trip.

An unbelievable experience. The staff and runners made this event unforgettable. They really went above and beyond to care for the runners and make the experience so memorable. The way the schedule changed, remarked the course just to make it safe was outstanding. It was an incredibly challenging run full of distracting and unbelievable scenery. I cannot stress how great of an event this race is!!!! The Northern Lights Tour and Russel Glacier Tour were both fantastic. The whole package was incredibly priced for what it was and for the ease that it was to book.

I love going with Travelling Fit as it takes out so much of the stress of travelling and also running the marathon.

Running the Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon, was a life enriching experience. Being able to partake in this journey with my eldest son, made the event even more memorable. Everything was extremely well organized - and the amount of time taken to reach base camp, was perfect for acclimatization. We were well looked after, with attention given to the smallest detail, in order for us to have a safe race and a perfect journey. My overall experience with Travelling Fit was a 10/10.

I found the "Life in MDS" presentation by Mari-Mar very informative. It gave an insight into what we could expect. I’ve read volumes of information on the Internet from other people’s experience; however I found that sifting through the hyperbole was a thankless task. Their first-hand knowledge and experience and slide show was much more knowledgeable and useful than anything I read on the Net. The tips offered during the presentation and throughout the week-end was practical and useful.

The Saturday and Sunday walk/run was great and provided a variety of terrain to navigate – steps, slopes, hills, boardwalks, trails and soft sand. This was the first time I had walked with my pack on dry sand The overnight camping experience I felt was good in that it gave us the opportunity to sleep in a lean-to with a group of people. It also provided us with the opportunity to test out some of the camp food we had brought with us and to see whether our stoves were suitable. Having the opportunity to meet and communicate with some of the others who will be attend the MDS was a worthy exercise.

I just appreciated the opportunity to familiarise myself with equipment, trekking and running with a backpack as well as getting to know other people involved.

The whole week-end was like a well-oiled machine

Lin and I just wanted to say how enjoyable our trip was to Greece last month and how smoothly the marathon part all went. We need to say what a great job your local representative did on behalf of us all. She was always available and when contacted responded very promptly and very professionally. (Even when we threw a couple of curved balls at her!) The actual marathon was a great success, the Gods smiled on all runners, and what was going to be a warm run was tempered with light rain at the start and overcast skies through the entire event. I must say thank you for the Travelling Fit running tops. The material they are made from is fabulous, breaths really well and is as light as a feather. Anyway, thank you to all the crew, we sure hope to see you at the next Travelling Fit adventure.

Carolyn Colling, SA
I want to congratulate the entire Travelling Fit organisation for the outstanding job you did to ensure that we were all looked after from the very first moment that we arrived in New York. The meet and greet gave me an opportunity to meet some lovely Ozzies with whom I was able to spend time and accompany to events, especially on the Marathon day. To be taken to the 14 mile area where we were able to await our runners was so special and I am sure that I would not have seen anything if I had tried to make my own way around with so many spectators in the city for the event. We really enjoyed Mari-Mar at firstly the Rob de Castella Indigenous afternoon and then at the after marathon party – that was such a great night with lots of wine and food, all generously offered by the wonderful staff. Kirsten and I had a fabulous time in New York with all of the important details of hotel, interesting bus trip around the city and information at the Hudson available at all times which made it so safe and easy.

The Cuban trip was fantastic. I loved it! I have wanted to go to Cuba all my life and I would describe the experience as a holiday to Cuba with a 26.2 run/walk included. I wasn’t sure that doing the tour before the race was the best idea, however I’ve changed my mind on that. It gave us all a chance to get to know one another and to bond well before the race. It was heartwarming to be cheered on halfway and at the finish by a bunch of Aussies who felt like friends. Thank you for an amazing experience. We couldn’t have been in better company and the Aussies on board were really good fun with some really awesome running accolades between them all. I was very glad to have the WMM medal behind me so that I can start to enjoy the adventure/holiday run!

I have travelled to 8 marathons with Travelling Fit. They provide a great service and the staff reflect Mari-Mar’s interest in her clients. The worth of a business and its staff are not judged when things go well, but when problems arise and how they are handled. Travelling Fit were excellent in solving some of our issues flying into the country. Cuba was a great and memorable trip.

In 2019 I took a chance and booked for the Australian Outback Marathon with Travelling Fit. I was a bit apprehensive about bringing my son and his young family along with me as I felt the kids might have to miss out on a lot of the "adult" activities. I was wrong. This was THE MOST AMAZING and mind-blowing experience we have had as a family. I can't praise the whole trip highly enough. The food was absolutely amazing, staff were great, the accommodation was perfect and the race was unbelievable. I get emotional when I think about it, and can't imagine having another experience like this again. Everyone loved it, the food was AMAZING, activities and transfers were so well organized, there was plenty to do and it really wasn't that cold! If you have the chance to do this or are undecided, do it! I'll be going back. Thank you Travelling Fit for one of the top ten experiences of my life so far xxx

Trudi Wight, NSW
As an average cross country running teenager I thought it would be great to run the NYCM one day. I have run throughout my life to keep fit but at 47 took up running events. After time I started to realise my silly dream could become and reality. I researched who to travel with and Travelling Fit stood out. Knowing my family would be looked after was important to me. Our consultant was amazing and patient with my ever changing travel plans and never ending questions. The service was outstanding and the experience was without fault. And now I am not only a marathoner, but for my 50th I acheived a dream by successfully completing the NYCM. What an amazing experience. Travelling Fit allowed me to concentrate on what I needed to do without having to worry about the finer details. Thank you Travelling Fit for assisting me to make my dream come true.

The team from Travelling Fit are some of the most knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic people I have come across. From my inaugural marathon (NY2018) they made me feel a part of the Travelling Fit family. They made the entire journey including all the running around seamless. I just had to turn up and run (and maybe train a little more ). Highly recommend them to anyone thinking of doing their first, or any, marathon.

Dear the whole of the Travelling Fit NYC Team, A huge "thank you" from me for all of the hard work, encouraging support, and helpful advice that you offered me and the rest of the Travelling Fit runners in New York. I've so grateful that I got the opportunity to participate in this race in the company of other Aussies. A special highlight of the event was the chance to meet the Indigenous Marathon Runners and Rob de Castella - their stories were so moving and helped us to think deeply about our own goals and motivations - thank you very much for making this possible for us, what a privilege and inspiration.

From meeting other runners to sightseeing in the rain, from drinks and pasta to directions on how to get everywhere, from crazy kangaroo antics to the weird notes from strangers, from hugs and photos to the Travelling Fit crew on the microphone - it was a wonderful four days. Lots of laughs, running stories and friendships made. Thanks so much Travelling Fit for your organization, emails and support not just in Berlin, but for the last year !!! We can’t wait to do it all again.

I just want to thank you and the rest of the Travelling Fit team for a fantastic weekend last week at Yulara. I had the best weekend that I have ever had. I have never been to a place that everyone made me feel so welcome. It was the first time that I've been to the Northern Territory so the heat,flies,sand and camels eating our signs made it so special to me. I loved all the jokes from everyone, even the bus driver who was taking us to the airport told us that we was going to Darwin and the lady bus driver on the drop on drop off bus told us at a stop at Uluru and people running towards her that if she drives forward they would run harder so then she drives forward. There was so many more. I loved all the dinners. I don't eat out much so they made me feel special. The marathon yes was hard but I loved every minute of it. It didn't help that it was snowing at home for the 2 weeks before. I do want to run it again and I would like it the same you couldn't fault it. Thanks so much

Thank you and your team for an amazing Australian Outback Marathon trip. We had a fantastic weekend and it was lovely to meet you. The support Travelling Fit and the Outback Marathon team provided was touching. I would like to applaud you all for the fantastic environment you have nurtured over race years. The camaraderie and encouragement between runners and support staff was unbelievable and unforgettable.

Many thanks to the Travelling Fit, the ground suppliers and race organisers for an unforgettable race experience! The Thunder Dragon Marathon, Bhutan, was the best race I’ve done in 20 years of international marathons. The Marathon package exceeded expectations! The local guides were wonderful, enthusiastic, warm and accommodating in every way. The whole process was made easy and stress free for us. Also, Travelling Fit were patient and extremely helpful throughout the booking process, especially when our scheduled flight was cancelled and they went out of their way to find a solution. Can’t thank you enough!

Tokyo Marathon was my 5th event with Travelling Fit. And for five events there was my sister and three, our brother, also as runners. And my sister's children and our mother also joined us. Our initial contact with Travelling Fit absolutely fabulous, always responded to any questions very timely, very politely, very respectfully, I was often asking or answering in the middle of the night. The staff at Travelling Fit show a high level of professionalism and are first quality who care about and respect their clients.

I can highly recommend Travelling Fit as a very professional company with the highest standards in what they do. Travelling to the Tokyo Marathon was no exception and nothing is too much trouble. The pre marathon information is always useful, informative and presented in plenty of time. Queries are answered promptly. The tours are well organised and marathon day goes with our hitch. The planning and organisation at least, the running is up to you. Every time I run with them I know there will be no issues.

I have used other specialised running tour operators and I was happy enough with them however it was only after booking and travelling with Travelling Fit that I can now see their major short comings and I will now not use any other company but Travelling Fit. Thank you for making my trip so special.

I love that the staff that I've dealt with from Travelling Fit, they are really down-to-earth. I feel that I'm in very reliable hands, and in genuinely supportive company, with Travelling Fit. During the booking process the staff were wonderful in being very prompt and attentive in answering any email inquiries that I had, no matter how big or small my question was. They always communicated with me in such a pleasant and professional way. Thank you!

Just wanted to let you know that we had such a great time at a great event. Travelling Fit rep was amazing and went above and beyond and provided great support and knowledge throughout our stay. This trip has been my best in terms of forming new friendships which will continue into the future. I would just like to thank Travelling Fit over the past 3 1/2 years in allowing myself to reach my goal of achieving that 6 star medal. Your knowledge, guidance and everything in between makes staying and running in a foreign city so much easier. Thanks again.

Bronwyn and I would like to thank Travelling Fit for their commitment in making this event such a huge success and the boundless energy on the ground in ensuring that everything went to plan! We turn up for an event well trained and ready to go, but without Travelling Fit acting as a catalyst to move things along, we could've struggled to achieve our goals! Travelling Fit’s professionalism and attention to detail deserve our thanks and praise in making events like the London Marathon a success. Again many thanks in helping us achieve our 6 Star Major Marathon Medal and finishing in style with a PB!

From our initial enquiry with Travelling Fit, right through to arriving home from our amazing experience we could not be happier. As a family of six with three runners and three spectators there was some ‘out of the usual’ requirements with accommodation but nothing was too much trouble. We are far from serious runners but rather were looking for a family holiday with a run as part of that and it worked out perfectly for all of us. This is the second time I have travelled with Travelling Fit and it won’t be the last, I love all of the inclusions/tours available.  Couldn’t be happier - thank you.

Janet Goodwin, NSW
The 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.

Everyone was so friendly and encouraging. Leo and Frank did a great job keeping us informed and together!

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...

The Great Wall Marathon was my second trip with Travelling Fit, Paris Marathon being my first in 2014. I cannot praise Travelling Fit enough prior and during our trip, all questions were answered quickly via email or the FB page and the FB page was a fabulous way to get to know others prior and share tips. The Travelling Fit staff in Beijing were always there ensuring all aspects and details were covered daily, our Beijing guides Leo and Frankie were extremely helpful and knew the answer to any questions we asked. I loved every aspect of my trip and will hopefully be able to book another with Travelling Fit in the near future.

Sharon and Angus Callister, NSW
Angus and I just wanted to thank you so much for your (Travelling Fit’s)  organisation of us to do MDS and also for the messages of support we received from you. To say MDS was a life changing experience is an understatement, but it was definitely all we expected and much more. We knew we were in for a real challenge but actually living that challenge day in and day out saw us experience so many emotions we were not really prepared for. Looking back after just  a week though we can honestly say that the difficult and at times harsh conditions actually really contributed to the level of satisfaction we now have. The Travelling Fit representative was also a wonderful, calm and supportive presence in our midst. It was great having him lead our group. Thanks again for your messages and all you did to support us.

I cannot fault the level of detail and contact from Travelling Fit.  Having Travelling Fit organise all the logistics of getting there enabled me to focus on my training without worrying.. everything was perfect. I loved everything about the trip, it was challenging both during the race and before and after but that's what you sign up for! Our Travelling Fit host was amazing and as a first timer to the MDS I think his approach was perfect for all concerned. Relaxed but approachable manner made us all feel comfortable before the race but also during. Continually checked on our well being and always there for support and guidance. Was a brilliant person for the job. Cannot speak highly enough of him.

Wow wow wow ..... best event/mental/physical challenge I have ever done. From the daily sand management, self sufficiency requirements, footwear - enjoyed every second of it. Will be back at some stage to better myself from the lessons learnt. I also want to say thanks for all the support and encouragement on the recent MDS adventure…. To say I loved it was an understatement. The communication from Travelling Fit was fantastic and a big thanks goes to the Travelling Fit rep out at MDS for the people management in his quiet and very efficient manner. A real asset to Travelling Fit.

Travelling Fit is a great professional company full of passionate runners who are only interested in making the clients experience the best it can be. They are unbelievably organised which kept me on track and very understanding of how hard it is to organise and manage a big trip, work and family. The exclusive Travelling Fit Marathon package well and truly exceeded expectations and highly recommend to anyone travelling abroad for a race

I had a great experience travelling with Travelling Fit. The Travelling Fit rep was an absolute legend, perfect balance of being chilled out and letting us do our own thing and getting necessary tasks done. I felt really supported by him before and during the race, he’s such a down to earth, lovely guy! The Travelling Fit pre-event package was good too and something I would do again. I really appreciate all your help during the planning process. And also for your email during the race - it put a big smile on my face. I really didn’t appreciate prior to the race how much each email was going to encourage me in the coming stages! So thank you!!

Running Boston was my ultimate goal and was so happy to finally get there. The Travel Doc App was the best! Was great not to carry and not worry where I packed my paperwork. The hotel was in a great location and the pre-race pasta dinner put on by Travelling Fit was delicious as it took away the hassle of finding somewhere to eat the night before the race. It was great to have Boston Marathon as my final major to complete my six stars and thankful to get the opportunity through Travelling Fit.

This was my 10th Travelling Fit running package and I can’t say enough about the individual attention and time given to me in making sure I have a great customer experience. Staff are always quick to reply and proactive in offering to handle and do additional things for me like flight suggestions, side trips, reminders to get visas, ESTA, etc. Plus having done a few trips now I love meeting up with familiar friends over the years and getting to know the different staff members better. Keep up the brilliant work Travelling Fit. The move to the SmartTrips app was a great idea this time as well to eliminate additional reword my paper you needed to carry.  I look forward to completing my 6 majors with you later this year. Thanks for making that possible Thank you Travelling Fit for all your great work and making it so seamless for me to do what I love - run and travel.

Travelling Fit delivered more than I hoped for this trip. The events and the camaraderie were significantly more important and valuable than I expected. Great atmosphere. Travelling Fit made the running of the NYC Marathon even more exciting and impressive than just running the race. It felt like I was part of an Australian team. Couldn't be more impressed.

My first overseas running event made possible by Travelling Fit. I’m not sure I could have or would have been able to enter, negotiate all the paper work and fulfill all the requirements without the expertise of the Travelling Fit staff. My New York Marathon experience was highly successful and a very positive experience for me. I would like to thank Travelling Fit for enabling this. If you are considering using Travelling Fit for your running holiday, I feel you won’t be disappointed and highly recommend them.

Tokyo is a difficult marathon to get into and Travelling Fit made it an extremely easy and enjoyable experience. This was my last World Marathon Major so it was even more special!

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.

Graeme Orr, VIC
Thanks for a great weekend. Sand dunes run/walk was amazing, hard to believe we have terrain like that just right there on the coast. The beach run was a good, tough, soft sand run. The tent, camp and presentations were great. I was a lot more drained physically and mentally than I expected. I didn’t sleep that well, and felt hungry with my rations so I know its not just about the running. Overall it was well worth it.

David Kitchen, QLD
Use Travelling Fit! Organising yourself for the MDS is a major undertaking and I think pretty much everyone was fairly stressed by the time they got on the airplane. Not having to worry about organising the travel made it that much easier to go to the race and enjoy it without worrying about travel plans. Travelling Fit is an excellent company and I had no regrets whatsoever using their services. I attended the Travelling Fit training camp which provided me with most of the information I needed to start buying my gear. Probably more importantly, I met some of the runners, who later were in my tent. For me, the MDS was as much about the people I did it with, as the race itself, and this was set up as a result of meeting them beforehand.

I travelled to Disney World, Florida and completed the Dopey Challenge with Travelling Fit. They did all my bookings, airfares, accommodation, race entry etc and had two staff members travel to the event to help us out, answer any questions and support us. It was an awesome event and Travelling Fit certainly take all the stress away with the job they do. Thanks so much for making my dreams come true.

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 am by no means a runner and participated because my sister is a runner and wanted to do the Dopey Challenge. We came back to re-do the event with friends we met the year before through Travelling Fit. Being part of the Travelling Fit group, with their encouragement and humour, makes the event so enjoyable. Disney is all about participation and enjoying being active, so I would recommend this event to both runners and non-runners just having a go.

The communication we received during the journey was clear and concise, our accommodation was well located, spacious and great value.

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 thanks

My 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.

I have been using Travelling Fit now for eight years and you guys just seem to be doing it better and better each year. Your assistance and travel advice whether it is for one of your marathons or pre/post race travel has been faultless.

Looking forward to our next run, working with you on our next run/adventure.

I just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for the wonderful runs I’ve just returned from! Medoc and Berlin were a blast, incredibly well organised and fun from end to end (except for a bit in the middle there, but it was a very long way!) I truly appreciated Travelling Fit's warm and professional nature, our groups were diverse and numerous but we were corralled with a smile and on time, on task and enjoying every minute. I don’t know how they did it! I was gobsmacked at their ability to go nonstop over very long, very packed days, swanning between the travellers adding to our experience, sorting out details, going the extra mile to point out directions, taking solo bods like me under their wing so we were never without a social option – to me it turns a run into an experience, and one that I’m happy to pay for and that will keep me returning to Travelling Fit. Runs #4 and #5 with Travelling Fit are now ticked off, I can only hope Antarctica next year goes just as well! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for me beyond that! My sincere thanks once again to the entire Travelling Fit Team, you are truly brilliant at what you do, please keep doing it!

Travelling Fit have helped given us the opportunity to travel to so many places not only for 'a run' but all the before and after event adventures. Even better, our daughter has started to get the marathon bug so who knows where that will take her. So many of our friends just sit at home and watch sport or a holiday is travelling to Queensland every couple of years (not that there is anything wrong with QLD) but because of you Teresa and I are out there travelling the world. After Berlin, Teresa will be only two marathons away from her six point star which is pretty good as she only started running as part of her stroke therapy before Chicago 2016 and the Travelling Fit family (staff and all the runners) have played a huge part in getting her there. Cheers and thanks again for your fantastic support and patience.

Three years of dreaming about coming to Uluru and competing in an event at the Outback marathon finally realised. Drove with friends from Qld to Yulara. The event and set up exceeded all my expectations . First time entering a half marathon - the location was stunning and the friendliness of staff and the organisation of the whole event excellent. Standout - Uluru at Sunrise, the Field of Light & the beauty of the event course .

Massimo Colli, ITALY
Australian Outback Marathon 2018 - a magical experience even before landing.

That it is different from all the others that I have done I understand it by looking out the window, seeing Uluru, the sacred mountain, which stands out, alone, in a fantastic landscape. The organization thinks of everything, attentive to any problems and putting you at ease as if I had done with them this marathon dozens of times (just do not know how they always remember my name). The race is unique, especially when after 20 km the group breaks and practically you find yourself running alone in a magical environment, which changes colour with the passing of the hours. An incredible atmosphere, on land that in some short stretches is sandy but never ever difficult, with everyone ready to incite you and always with a smile.

Definitely the most beautiful and the most different I've ever done!

Monica Pennati, ITALY
A dream that has come true. Before leaving for the Australian outback, I would never have imagined running in these fairy-tale landscapes, on this red earth, with a cobalt blue sky, savouring the scent of absolute freedom, in the silence of nature, where the only noise was that of my breath. It was a journey with myself and I will always carry this experience inside myself. Perfect organisation, impeccable with people who, with an incredible passion and a unique kindness, gave me the opportunity to experience this indelible experience.
In the name of smiles and happiness, simply thank you

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 YOU

Can I first of all say what an absolutely brilliant time I had in Uluru this week. The entire package from start to finish, including the accommodation, the event itself and all of the add-ons were all first class. To you and the rest of the team, thank you all for your encouragement, hard work and professionalism, which is what made the event absolutely unforgettable.

What an experience! I can't say enough about the this amazing trip doing the Big 5 (half)! I'm so glad I stayed at WILDSIDE, with the best group of runners and spectators ever! The facilities were a perfect mix of comfort and real African bush experience. Amazing food and lovely staff. The run was something else - that hill! And the fun and shenanigans at the starting line was hilarious. And the after party! Oh, and of course the animals! The rangers and staff were fantastic, very capable (especially when the lions and elephants came to visit!) and their knowledge and love for the place was amazing. I learnt so much. Thanks to Travelling Fit and everyone involved in making this possible!

I came across Travelling Fit over 5 years ago when I decided to embark on my first marathon! And with every marathon event since then, I have had the Travelling Fit staff supporting me! It’s one of the reasons why I am motivated to keep doing marathons! There's never been anything too small or too big for Travelling Fit to help me with! The addition of "exotic" race events has been of tremendous value add and gives Travelling Fit the differentiator! Thank you for getting me to Boston this year!

The 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.

The Thunder Dragon marathon trip exceeded my expectations. The whole week was amazing with the Tiger's Nest and marathon event definitely being my favourite parts. As usual the whole trip is made even more special by the people you share the experience with and we were so lucky to have met an amazing bunch of individuals
thanks Travelling Fit!

They 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!

I just found the Travelling Fit reps were so approachable and so nice. It didn't matter what time you did, they treated you like a champion!  The other thing I love about Travelling Fit is meeting like-minded people. So many people think you are crazy for running marathons and so it is great to meet with others who think the same way as you. I have met so may wonderful people and formed life time friendships because of Travelling Fit.

The Virgin London Marathon was a great experience which was helped by Travelling Fit. Travelling Fit reps were also on hand to answer questions and provide assistance to runners and their partners, day and night. The extra activities, like the city tour were also excellent. It was also great to be taken to the start line by bus, instead of battling with the London transport system on race day. Overall, the whole experience was wonderful and I would strongly recommend Travelling Fit to prospective runners and their families.

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.

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!!

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.

I received outstanding service from Travelling Fit and a totally stress free experience especially as the hotel I stayed at was in a great location.

This is a short note from Lisa and I to let you know how much we appreciate your efforts in getting us to events in far off places. You guys rock when it comes to being organised and making sure that we have the best time. I have sent a small gift of thanks for doing a fantastic job in looking after all my requests, changes etc, not only this year but previous years. The advice we receive from Travelling Fit in how to get the best out of our holiday time, and our dollars has been invaluable. We are anticipating heading back to Jordan again next year and will be doing a few extra trips while we are there so will once again rely on your expertise, tolerance of my endless question and good humour.

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.

Alex McKenzie, NSW
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.  Cheers

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!

I 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.

I was recommended Travelling Fit by some friends who did the Berlin Marathon the previous year. They were absolutely right. The tour guides on site were exceptional; friendly helpful and encouraging , especially for a first time marathoner. The hotel was perfectly placed to access restaurants, Mall of Berlin and the U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations. The other team members were typical of runners; friendly and happy to share in the successes of others. I was a little sad to see the experience end and I would definitely recommend Travelling Fit for any person who wants a stress-free marathon experience.

We have just completed the Berlin Marathon with Travelling Fit. What a wonderful experience! The Movenpick Hotel was a great choice in hotel as the room was comfortable, spacious, quiet, well-equipped and ideal in location to the shops, race start and expo. The hotel has an excellent restaurant and the breakfast variety was perfect. We were impressed with the Traveling Fit organization of the excellent pasta dinner, the after-race party, the superb drive around the city with excellent guides talking about the sights and the Aussie runners that we met were a fun group. Also we have to say we really liked the design and quality of your Travelling Fit t-shirt for the Berlin Marathon as better than the finisher's shirt!

The Big5 Half Marathon...an indescribably amazing experience!!
South Africa is like my home away from home, so to finish my first half marathon in a country I love, literally brought tears to my eyes (thank goodness I had sunnies for the photos!) EVERYTHING was so well organised, accommodation and food were amazing, (no need to worry if you have any dietary requirements), staff at Wildside along with our tour leader were genuinely friendly, knowledgeable, and nothing was too much trouble - heading out on one game drive, we jokingly asked to see baby cheetahs, giraffe and lion... well, we asked, we got!!! All three!! And for added bonus, we saw cheetah Mum too. The event itself is....... challenging! There is 4K of mountain which I think has been mistakenly referred to as a 'hill', sand, rocks and not quite as much oxygen around as we are used to. I wouldn't change a thing.

A huge, heart felt 'Thank you' to Travelling Fit and Entabeni Game Reserve for making my first half marathon an experience I will never forget. Bring on the next challenge!

It was so nice to meet you, Mari-Mar, Michael and the rest of the Travelling Fit team at Ayers Rock and we just want to thank you once again for such a wonderful trip.

Running the Australian Outback Marathon was so very special and it truly was an amazing experience and location that neither of us will ever forget. Who could forget all that red earth, sand and of course those sand dunes. Brent and I had such a fabulous time away made even better by sharing it with the wonderful Travelling Fit team.

It was such a well organised event from the minute we arrived in Ayers Rock and continued right through until we left. The passion, enthusiasm,expertise and friendliness of the whole team was just incredible, so thanks again.

The weekend was probably the best weekend I’ve had in Australia since I arrived here almost 5 years ago. From the moment that I landed to being dropped off at the airport, I wanted for nothing and everything had been thought of by you guys. The tours that I went on were incredible and so well organised. The hotel was spot on, with a really relaxed atmosphere and decent breakfast.

The marathon itself was easily my favourite one that I have done to date (and that was #9). The setting is just magical and the atmosphere on course and at the start/finish line was amazing. It was a pleasure to be in the company of the Travelling Fit team in the Outback Pioneer Pub the night after the marathon, hearing stories of the day and generally having a good time. The clientele at the event also contributed to the amazing energy of the weekend, talking to people about marathons in North Korea and South Africa was brilliant. The ‘Sounds of Silence’ Celebration dinner was an epic way to cap off a truly magical weekend.

I’ve been raving about the weekend to anyone that will listen this week and have already started thinking about whether I can do it all again next year. To you all, thank you so much for an incredible experience. I’ll sum up my experience with this: after 4 hours running in that heat, I’m bouncing across the finish line with a massive smile on my face!!!

This was a great event. I met so many wonderful and inspirational runners from first-time marathoners to a lady who was going to do her 174th. The events like game drives, ballooning, extra drives for specialty interests are all great. They tour leader, staff, rangers made the whole experience very, very pleasant. I was woken up by hippo sounds every morning. As for the marathon, it is a toughy; practice your hills and soft sand running.

Travelling Fit were brilliant. The London Marathon was a 'bucket list' item for me, and the Travelling Fit Team were super professional at every step of the way.

Comrades 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.

Nothing 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.

Thank you to the Travelling Fit team who helped organise and prepared us for the London Marathon, including both the office and “on ground” teams. They were very professional and answered any of my rookie questions, and the support I received from both was great. Having the wonderful attitude and friendly manner they have made it easier for me to find out things about the event that I normally wouldn't have by just looking up a website and registering. It was their personal experience and feedback that was appreciated.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for helping me achieve the six star medal, it has been a bit bumpy the last few years with DVT’s and injury but we got there in the end and  I could not have done this without Travelling Fit. As you know I have run many marathons around the world mostly on my own but the ones I have enjoyed the most are when I travel with you guys (New York, Berlin, Tokyo and London); you take away all the stress of where to stay and how to get to the start line to name a few, and of course you attract all the right people (us runners). Anyway, I will be looking for the next challenge, hopefully to travel with you guys again in the near future.

The 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.

We really enjoyed the area and hope to go back for a visit. The Vineyard hotel was spectacular we had lots of fun. Good choice thank you.

Our Antarctica trip was the trip of a lifetime. I can honestly say it has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Words can't do justice to how incredible this trip is. From the vastness of the white continent, the cuteness of the penguins and their chicks, the whales so close you can smell and touch them, the seals, the blue coloured icebergs - to the cold, fresh air and freezing polar plunge to the warmth and camaraderie of fellow runners and new friends, it was incredible. We went to Antarctica to run a marathon and left in awe of this amazing continent with its stunning, majestic beauty. Thank you to Travelling Fit for organising this magnificent experience. It was a dream come true. We are so fortunate to have visited Antarctica. Put it on your bucket list - it will live in your heart forever.

Thanks 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.

Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for organising our trip, we didn't have a single problem the whole time we were away. Everyone involved in the marathon including the runners were amazing and a joy to spend time with. I have never seen so many hugs and tears shared when we disembarked the ship in Ushuaia. Why you would choose to do one of the other "fly in/fly out" events is beyond me!

Its now a little over 2 months since the New York marathon. I just wanted to say thanks to you all for making this event so easy. Great accommodation at the Hudson and the add-ons with the running top, bus ride, pre-race briefing and the post-race drinks, plus the photos that came through all added to the excitement of the event. That’s now 2 marathons I have done via Travelling Fit (Paris in 2014 was my first). Seriously looking at London for 2018 now!

This has been my 3rd NY Marathon and the team were excellent. The team at Travelling fit really bring the essence of Australia to New York everytime. Having everything organised and planned made the trip a breeze. I had the pleasure of bringing 9 runners over as a coach and they all had a great time. The tour of NY on the bus was fantastic they guide was awesome one of things we will never forget. The Short group run Friday morning was also fantastic to meet the other runners and a chance to get out on the track a bit. Our whole team loved the friendship of the crew and our hotel the Lucerne was ace. Thanks again we will be back

It was absolutely the best! Thanks again!! It was great to meet the wider Travelling fit team! My mind was utterly blown at the level of organisation! I saw the enormous A4 planner, and even just that there were 4 buses going from the Sheraton on race day, not to mention that you had social shin digs on every day! Amazing! As for London vs NY....what a production NY put on, not just an expo and run, but the opening ceremony, pasta night, 5km! Trust Americans to put on one amazing party! I did really enjoy the scenery on the London course and think it was a prettier run, but my legs liked the variation of the hills in NY and the spectators were outstanding (even the orthodox Jewish suburb was fascinating!) I had my reservations over whether I'd like NY as much but to be honest, I'm glad I did them in the order I did, I loved both but wonder if that would have been the case if I'd done London later.  It is a very heartfelt thank you for a wonderful time! I have been telling people my feet didn't feel like they touched the floor for the run, the same feels pretty true post event too! You guys rock! Thanks!

I’m pleased to report that we had a great time and the itinerary ran like clockwork!. On-time flights, no lost bags, very comfortable lodgings in the Lucerne, and the marathon was a blast. On a personal level it was very satisfying to get to both the start line and the finish, and the hospitality shown the Travelling Fit team was terrific. Thanks for all your support and assistance over the past 12 months. You and your group will be the first to come to mind for any plans or recommendations about this kind of holiday that might pop up in future.

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.

Thank you for your help in the run up my Kangaroo Island adventure. It was a very special event and I am very glad to have taken part in such a unique running event . Yet again Travelling Fit ensured a smooth journey (though I can't say the same for the ferry crossing back to the mainland!!) . I'm already looking at what I can do next! Thanks again.

Thanks, Mari Mar!  You were always positive, upbeat, supportive and made everybody feel like your most important client!  You're really very good at what you do.  I was particularly moved by your short speech about what TF means to you, combining your passions for running and travel, and your desire to share that with others and help people achieve some dreams.  So thanks to you and the TF team for all your hard work!

"Run the World with Travelling Fit" and you shall never regret it. This experience will never be forgotten. The care and attention put into making sure our every need was taken care of was second to none. The other obvious thing, was that we were made to feel a part of the team even though we were new comers and others had travelled together before. This was due to the warm and friendly nature of Travelling Fit and crew. Thank you.

Julian and I were honoured to be part of the first "Run the World" Marathon experience, in Iceland. The organisation, by Travelling Fit, from the time of our first enquiries, right through to the completion of the tour, was exceptional. It gave us the opportunity to visit one of the countries on our 'bucket list' and fulfil a commitment to enjoy running experiences in new locations. The incorporation of tours, accommodation and selected meals in the package, in addition to the entry to the race, made for a total experience to be enjoyed and shared with a terrific group of  like-minded people. We congratulate the Staff of Travelling Fit for developing the concept of the "Run the World" tour and for their hard work and professionalism in arranging the Reykjavik Marathon experience. Thank you.

Travelling Fit made my experience of running the Reykjavik marathon truly memorable and a once-in-a-lifetime holiday.  Everything was thought of from local tours, to providing us with a commemorative running jacket to choosing hotels walking distance to the start and finish and taking me to some great local restaurants.  Will definitely be back for the next "Run the World" adventure in Cuba.  Thanks for putting on this package and taking me to a place I'd otherwise probably not visited.

Use Travelling Fit! Organising yourself for the MDS is a major undertaking and I think pretty much everyone was fairly stressed by the time they got on the airplane. Not having to worry about organising the travel made it that much easier to go to the race and enjoy it without worrying about travel plans. Travelling Fit is an excellent company and I had no regrets whatsoever using their services. I attended the Travelling Fit training camp which provided me with most of the information I needed to start buying my gear. Probably more importantly, I met some of the runners, who later were in my tent. For me, the MDS was as much about the people I did it with, as the race itself, and this was set up as a result of meeting them beforehand.

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 best

I wanted to write to you to say a massive thank you for an amazing experience in Uluru over the weekend. The Outback marathon was unreal!!! I had such a great time. It was a wonderful, intermit event. The Highlight of the race was having my name announced running through the finish line, that was super super special THANK YOU!!  A big shout out to the photographers, they were so friendly and it was great having their smiling faces out on the course encouraging me all the way, and the photos I received today are amazing, they capture the moment so well.

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.

As a 'non-runner' who trained to do the first two events ( 5 & 10km) it was a fantastic experience to be with a group of people that were so supportive and encouraging of each other regardless of participation levels. The group absolutely was my highlight - made it so much more enjoyable being part of a group and sharing achievements.

Thank you for all your organisation of my trip to Athens. It was amazing! Running into that stadium was wonderful, after 42km my feet suddenly seemed to be gliding it felt so good. All the tours were excellent. I would recommend the Plaka Hotel to any traveller to Athens, it was great.

Once again a HUGE thank you for all that you did for all of the runners in London. It was such a pleasure sharing the experience with the happy group and everything was just so well organised. I couldn't have hoped for a better London Marathon experience, not just the run itself, but the events that you organised with the Travelling Fit runners as well. The organisation pre event was easy and clear to follow, with clear expectations for deposits etc. The Travelling Fit travel consultants were helpful and prompt with communication.

The event package was just what I'd want for a marathon weekend and the information provided beforehand was fantastic. At the event, the Travelling Fit representative was incredibly organised and helpful. Nothing was too difficult for her, and everything was easy for the runners as a result. There was minimal (no) fuss getting to the start line (unlike my usual marathons) and the pre and post race events were terrific.

The small details organised by Travelling Fit weren't expected and very much appreciated, such as the delicious food at the pasta party, even down to having a bath in every participant's room. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

I would just like to personally thank you for the work that you have done to bring all this together. Everything went extremely well right from when we left Melbourne until we returned. All flights connected without any rushing or fears of missing the connection. The stop over hotel in Los Angeles was well located giving us the opportunity to buy a SIM card and have a look at some of the key sights. The marathon at Disney World was absolutely amazing. It was just so well organised right from the time we were picked up at the airport until we were dropped off at the end. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We just felt that they were so pleased to have us there. The marathon was unlike any other marathon I have ever run (It was number 13 for me). Almost everyone was just running to have fun. People were constantly stopping to line up and have photos taken with the hoards of Disney characters scattered around the course. The crowd support was incredible. There was almost a constant stream of people cheering you on all the way around. I would highly recommend this marathon for any one, it was fantastic.

Just a quick note of thanks for assisting with my Walt Disney World Marathon experience. All went well and I'm pleased to say I had a lot of fun doing this marathon, even if it was a new PW (personal worse) time for me. It is an event you can't take too seriously, as all the Disney characters are out along the course, so people stop to have their photos taken. I even wore Minnie Mouse ears while I was running, as most people were dressed up and it helped get you in the spirit of the race. The highlight would have to have been running through Cinderella's castle which was all lit up at around 6am. It just looked truly spectacular... thanks again for doing a wonderful job with my booking.

My Prague experience was sensational, a real eye opener and the Marathon was great to be part of. The organisers here did a fantastic job in running the event. In regards to the accommodation, the location was amazing, I stepped outside the hotel straight into the runners marshaling area which was such a benefit, no belongings to leave, just step outside and be ready to run. The accommodation itself was ok without raving about it however the location outweighed this aspect. I would truly recommend this Marathon to anyone considering, it is a sensational city with a very much favourable Marathon course.

What a great bus tour organised by Travelling Fit. Even after many trips to London I learnt new things and saw many new sights, some of which I returned to after the tour to explore in more depth. Great tour guide, nice level of explanation. Booked with Travelling Fit purely for this [bus transfer] service! Great to have had, made things very "easy". Appreciated, and very glad, that departure time was a little later than in previous years. The Meet and Greet was a lovely evening and so absolutely necessary for a debrief. With this and the pasta night, really made it feel like an experience and not just a run. Well run and loved the penthouse floor views. Will never forget that sunset! You have a great team, I'd be happy to book an event again given the care I received.

We didn't attend any extra Travelling Fit events during the 5 days due to us being really busy seeing friends and family across London and in the country but were very happy to know that it was an option if we were there and felt very comfortable to attend and talk to our Travelling Fit representative, whenever possible. Loved every minute of the Virgin Money London Marathon and now have a goal to run the rest of the marathon majors.

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.

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.

The Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon was by far one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. The Nepalese crew that accompanied us on the trek were very professional and made me feel very comfortable in such an extreme environment. While the trek and event were challenging I would highly recommend the Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon to others. In addition to this Nepal and the Nepalese people are beautiful and certainly made this trip memorable. Thank you for all of your assistance leading up to the event.

Hi all, I know that you provide a service in your business but I wanted to "Thank You" for the organisation of the two events I have been involved in through Travelling Fit. The first was New York and although it did not go ahead it was well communicated and I never felt that I was left wondering with the updates and information sent out. I know there was some angst from some people and I could see that they were ill informed and angry. Their anger unfortunately was directed at Travelling fit from a poor perspective of rationalising that someone should pay for the sacrifice that they lost. I am wrapped about the marathon in Tokyo. Its organisation, the course, the weather and also the job that happens from the perspective of Travelling Fit. I know that putting something like this together is hard (albeit that others don't see that) and I just wanted to send my gratitude to you all for just doing what you do. Thank you again and here's to many more bookings in the future!

Just a quick note to say thank you for organising me for the NYC Marathon last week. Missing out on 2012 - the fun was a long time in coming. I had an amazing time in NYC and loved meeting the other runners during my time there. It was great having such a large Aussie contingency participating - and for my very first marathon - anywhere - I felt completely in the loop and there was nothing missing from the seamless organisation that Travelling Fit provided at the absolute crack-of-dawn on Sunday 3 November.

I just wanted to convey an absolutely MASSIVE 'Thank You' to you both and the rest of the Travelling Fit team for the most wonderful NY Marathon experience. The girls who looked after us all in NY were an absolute credit to Travelling Fit and always had a smile on their face - I can well imagine that they worked non-stop getting everything ready for us all before NY and ensuring that everything was in place for us for the marathon itself. I had an absolute ball. The whole experience was everything I hoped it would be and more - I can't really put into words how much I loved it! Not having to worry about the logistics of getting to the start line in the morning was fantastic... I had a wonderful race - I have never run in anything like that before in my life! I finished in 4:04, knocking 13 mins off my previous marathon PB so was chuffed to bits... I have recommended Travelling Fit to all my triathlon / running buddies and definitely will not hesitate to book through you again! Once again, thank you to all in the Travelling Fit team for everything!

I would like to say thank you to the Travelling Fit crew for helping me achieve my goal of completing my first marathon especially in New York. It was a fantastic experience and one I know I won't forget. You guys do an amazing job and I cannot speak highly enough of the job you guys did to get everyone there. I am so happy to have been apart of the 2013 experience and am so happy with my time - I never believed I had a sub 4 hour in me especially first go. I also said I wouldn't do another marathon but two weeks later, you never know. Thanks again and please pass my thanks on to everyone from Travelling Fit.

I can't thank the NY team enough and particularly Mari-Mar. When my husband and I were caught up in the LAX shooting and were in lockdown for 10 hours in the airport we not only missed our flight to New York but could not get through to domestic airlines to rebook because of chaos and confusion at the airport. Thanks to Mari-Mar and her team who were so supportive and helpful they managed to organise an early flight out of LAX to get us to New York by Saturday afternoon. I still can't thank you enough as if it hadn't been for you and your quick and efficient help we would have missed out. Your offers of help (we had no luggage for 3 days) was appreciated at quite an upsetting experience. Your support of your runners is just brilliant and I really hope to travel with you guys again! Thank you so much. Thank you so much

Just a follow up email to say thanks for your help and support in organising my New York Marathon trip. It all went really well and the Travelling Fit girls on site were great. I finished the Marathon in 5.09 and was very happy with that effort. The Lucerne Hotel was great and we loved the Upper West Side area (especially the great deli opposite which we frequented heaps).The Marathon was just huge/inspiring/fantastic all in one…..from the Opening Parade on the Friday night , through to the Expo (OMG!!) and the race itself with massive crowds, great music and atmosphere etc. I bought so much expo gear and after the race-finishers gear, that we had to mail a box of stuff back to Australia before we left New York! Thanks again for everything. We were very, very happy with the Travelling Fit package and the support, care and professionalism of the whole Travelling Fit team. Was it all worth it?…a million times over!!

Just letting you know I had a great time at Marathon du Medoc. What a great event. It would be the best marathon I have ever done. Everyone was so happy, the day was overcast and I think about 21 degrees, perfect for running. Everything was well organised, the ladies at Le Continental in Bordeaux were so helpful. My race pack was waiting for me when I arrived at the hotel. The walk and lunch on Sunday was great, although it was a bit hard to start walking after doing the marathon the day before, but as my legs warmed up I was right. The lunch was fantastic. The French certainly know how to put on a feed. Thank you for all you help and I will definitely use Travelling Fit in the future. I am looking forward to my next adventure with Travelling Fit.

Thank you for a great Marathon Medoc. We loved every minute and never thought a marathon could be so much fun. It was wonderful not worrying about time for once in our life! Usually a marathon is 42km of pain - but before there was any pain during Medoc we stopped and had a wine, cheese, oyster, steak or ice cream. Absolutely perfect! It is impossible for you to improve - you do everything so well. Just keep it up. We are your biggest fans.

I have just competed in, and completed, the marathon des sables . From start to finish you guys have made one of my life long dreams come true. Admin wise you made everything so simple and answered every question in a fantastic time making our journey so much easier. You took the stress out of our entire trip!. Mari-Mar, you truly are one of life's genuine, energetic, caring people. You went out of your way for every single person on this trip, often making sacrifices for yourself. When my bags didn't turn up you kept me sane, helped me get what I needed from everyone else, and to this day I still can't believe my bag turned up three days into the race in the middle of the desert!!! And having to sleep next to Hully's "drink" bottle must have made the whole trip even more memorable! Your photos are perfect, your attitude is fantastic and you made my experience one I will never forget (or stop talking about!). Tent 69 was so much fun and each of us encouraged the others to get through and friends for life were made, perfect match, thank you. We did this race to raise money for charity and Ronald McDonald house Newcastle will be the recipients of over $25000 of which indirectly you have made a massive contribution too, with your support and words of wisdom to both Drew and myself. Sadly Drew had to cut his trip short as his girlfriends sister had a baby who sadly passed away 11 days later. Ironically the family stayed at Ronald McDonald house so out efforts have already seen the good it can do. Once again thank you for everything you did for all 41 people, you are an amazing, inspiring woman who will continue, I am sure, to make other people's dreams come true. Thank you

Thanks for your assistance in the months leading up to the event. I’d have no hesitation recommending TF to friends off the back of my experiences with MdS. With an event of this nature and being a first timer there was a great deal of information to absorb, documents and forms to complete and arrangements to make and to be assisted along the way like you did was ideal. Particularly helpful was the access to seasoned runners via Facebook and the webinar prior to the event and then Mari Mar and others in Morocco. Any question that was not able to be answered on the spot was done soon after. The race was just a brilliant experience. Thanks again,

To you Mari Mar thank you for all your support during the event. You were there morning and night to make sure we were all OK despite going through the same tough stuff we were all sharing and despite having a bad day yourself. You go above and beyond and it is very much appreciated. No doubt I will be in touch again to book another event in the not too distant future.

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.

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.

Thank you so much for everything you did for Dave and I in the planning, organising, chasing accommodation and booking for our trip to China and Singapore stopover. Our holiday would not have been as perfect as it was without your help. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in China and as well as the breathtaking Great Wall run the sightseeing you organised was just so much more than we could've hoped for. Thankyou 🙂 Our stopover stay at Marina Bay Sands was simply incredible. I don't know if I have the words to describe how wonderful a time we had there too. Paying the extra for the Club Room was also worth every cent. If anyone ever asks you about it, a high recommendation from us is an understatement! It was the perfect end to what Dave has described (to everyone we have talked to so far about our trip) as "the best holiday we have ever had"

Great Wall Marathon - China
Peter Wheeldon, Eaglehawk, VIC
It was a real privilege to be able to participate in the 2015 a Great Wall Marathon. Although the run up the Wall was extremely tough, it was also exhilarating with spectacular views and incredible scenery. It was also great running through the villages and getting to 'high five' the young children lining the track! It also gave you a real lift whenever you saw another runner in their Aussie 'Travelling Fit' top! The local guides were excellent and looked after us very well. We had read and heard some horror stories about travelling in China ... however our entire trip went very smoothly and we were always very well looked after. We were pleasantly surprised that most of our tour group were just ordinary, normal people like us ... who just happened to have the courage to get out of their comfort zone and attempt something extraordinary! We were very fortunate to have so many friendly people in our group. Many thanks to the Travelling Fit crew for their friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism in helping fulfill my dream to run the Great Wall.

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

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...

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.

The 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.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for everything u do and did to ensure comfort and good prep for the marathon! I didn't get to spend much time with you and the crew throughout the experience but I never felt uncomfortable. You are very professional and I was so happy to be there helping represent Travelling Fit!! The marathon itself was another great experience!! You will be definitely hearing from me in the near future!! Thanks again.

I rarely use travel companies as I am quite happy to sort out the travel details myself. However, the smooth operation of Traveling Fit has had me back twice, and more trips planned. So, focusing on event travel is your speciality. Stick to it.

I have to say my experience has been great right through. I dealt with various team members of yours and all were fabulous. I would never have run an international major marathon if it wasn't for you guys. Too many uncertainties and trial and errors if I had to do this all by myself. Truly thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Well the dust has settled on our African Adventure, and what a blast it has been! I don’t even know where to begin to try and put into words how amazing it was. Surprisingly it wasn’t all about the marathon..I enjoyed every minute of it – thank you to the awesome runners that made up our fun group, the super cool rangers and the gorgeous staff Entabeni Game Reserve was the perfect setting for this Marathon… from the different running terrains, wild animals and the hill…But after 42km it was all worth it.. that feeling you get when it’s all over will stay with me forever.

I just wanted to say thanks for all your help organising our trip to South Africa. It was absolutely brilliant! Entabeni was everything that I hoped that it would be and while I didn’t have the ideal preparation for the run (not very well the night before) it was an awesome experience. I enjoyed it so much that I would like to go back next year and have a go at the full marathon. Sue and I both loved Cape Town. It is a beautiful city with plenty to see and do. Our hotel was great and it was only a 100 metre walk and we were on the waterfront. The shark dive was amazing!! It was looking like we wouldn’t see anything for a while and then we got a call from another boat. The other boat had seen 1 shark and they were about to leave so we went into Shark Alley to take over their spot. We spotted the shark straight away so the guys put the cage in the water. We ended up seeing 5 sharks in total. The smallest was about 2.5m and the biggest was 4m. What an incredible experience. Once again, thanks for all your help in organising a trip of a lifetime!

My sister, Lindsay Holland, and I would like to thank you both for the amazing event that you organised in the Outback. We were also both so pleased that we changed back to the full marathon and, although we were Walkers, we did not come last! The organisation was superb. The events that you arranged, especially the Celebration Dinner, were fantastic. The atmosphere of the Marathon, with such friendly volunteers manning the aid stations, was very enjoyable. It was not just a Marathon - it was a 4 day Experience! I would definitely recommend this Marathon to anyone looking for a marathon 'with a difference'.

Just arrived back yesterday from the Australian Outback Marathon and I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all at Travelling Fit for such a well organized and wonderful event. From the first enquiry through to the actual event it has been a pleasure to associate with all concerned. Apart from the actual marathon the highlight would have to be the Sounds of Silence Dinner Celebration Dinner - a beautiful night.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say what an experience we had over the past 4 days. After 8 months of training my big day had arrived. Not knowing how these events run l was quite nervous leading up the run, but as soon as l hopped of the bus in the morning with the music blaring my body relaxed and before I knew it l was off running my first half marathon. I guess what l am trying to say is that this is one of the best experiences we have had in life and to share it with so many other people especially the kids in the photos we are so thankful for yourself and the whole Travelling Fit crew who made this experience for us pretty much a once in a lifetime opportunity. This will be something we will never forget.

Just a quick note of my appreciation for all your help and assistance with coordinating my booking for this year’s AOM. It was great to meet you finally and put a face to the name after months of emailing. I think you and the entire team at Travelling Fit did an awesome job in coordinating and keeping happy some 500 odd runners and supporters, which I know is no easy feat! I hope you got some downtime when you returned on Monday but I would have to say this was THE best organised event/tour I have ever done – all the thinking was made for me and it was fantastic. I look forward to doing another event with Travelling Fit in the near future.

My girlfriend and I recently completed the world famous Australian Outback Marathon. Although it has been a couple of weeks since the run, we just wanted to say congratulations and thank you once again for organising such a wonderful event! We both had an unforgettable time in the Northern Territory and can't wait for the next run. The organisation and service provided by Travelling Fit was world class. All of the Travelling Fit staff and representatives were friendly and approachable, providing a friendly smile at every opportunity. They are to be highly commended for putting on such a tremendous event! A special mention has to go to our travel consultant Lee. He provided us with all of the relevant information in the lead up to the event, and entertained us with some great stories during the 'Silence of Sound' Celebration dinner. The trip provided such a unique experience - one we were privileged to share with other runners from around the globe. They say marathoners are a 'special' breed and they are not wrong. We met so many inspiring people along the way....prompting us to re-challenge ourselves once again. A day after we got home we booked our next marathon in Adelaide in late August. We will continue to spread the word on what an amazing service Travelling Fit provided us along the way. All the best and thanks again.

I wanted to email and say thank-you for one of the best (in fact maybe it is the best) races I have ever run. It was an exceptional experience and the organisation by Travelling Fit was superb. You guys really did think of EVERYTHING and I have never run a race where so much was included from the meal the night before to a really good running t-shirt (usually I wear the t-shirt as pjs!) to all the food at the event and the wonderful support and camaraderie. It was a very special event and definitely a worthy bucket list adventure!

As we return to ‘normal’ life today it would be remiss of me not to take some time to send a quick note regarding our experience over the last five days. I made the decision to sign up for Australian Outback Marathon last August and after some procrastination and in decision, I was lucky to have a friend decide to come along on the journey who was super organised and took hold of the booking process. While I had imagined it would be an amazing adventure nothing quite prepared me for what I would gain from the experience and a lot of this comes down to the amazing organisation of the event and your team on the ground. A particular thanks to our amazing hotel liaison! We were made to feel welcome from the outset at the airport and the delivery of the race packs at the hotel, especially since we were the only two to arrive at our hotel on that flight and were a day early! The accommodation was more than adequate, the meals were fantastic and even catered for a fussy eater, the extra activities were great and another opportunity to meet others. The race briefing and opening ceremony while serving an important purpose of the pre race preparation, created a general excitement among the group. The general friendliness and engagement with the other competitors encapsulated the whole experience. We certainly met some amazing people on the way including the locals. While everyone has their own motivation and reason for completing the race, I hope they all take from it as much as we did! Thanks again and who knows we may be back one day!

We have only positive feedback! The service provided was brilliant - particularly when we were asking for 'unique' entry arrangements for the Athens Marathon. It was wonderful considering we did all of the arrangements via email. Travellling Fit found and arranged additional flights for us and advised us on some Europe based travel. We will certainly travel with Travelling Fit in the future!

Just to let you know that all went very well. My time was the best in about 4 years so definitely worthwhile. The course is quite scenic and was relatively cool, with a bit of wind and some rain towards the end. It was a great marathon to finish the year on. Once again, thanks for organising at such short notice.

Having just returned from the Berlin Marathon experience I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS on a job really well done! The entire time in Germany was made so easy and uncomplicated by your excellent planning and management. It is so good to see company members who clearly love what they do, it sends out good vibes that are infectious. I have no doubt at all that I am going to be a "Travelling Fit" client for many years to come and along the way will be referring as many potential clients to your business as I can. As you well know, referrals are gold but they only come because you are doing a great job, so give yourselves a big pat on the back because you are all running a great business and deserve the success I am sure you will receive. Thanks for making our holiday a most memorable one. I am looking forward to my next adventure with Travelling Fit.

Can you please pass on my gratitude for allowing me to tag along with the Travelling Fit group to New York, and thank you for organising my package. I had an absolutely fantastic time and was totally impressed with Travelling Fit’s organisation. I loved the race shirt, which of course attracted a LOT of calls from the spectators (either by name of or Australia). The bus to the start directly from the Lucerne Hotel was priceless and I enjoyed being able to interact with other Australians via the Facebook page. I’ll think about other marathons… maybe Paris or Berlin… and would definitely book through Travelling Fit.

Just a note of thanks for the great work you and the team have done to make the New York Marathon such a wonderful experience. Lin and I had a fabulous time in NY running the Dash on the Saturday and of course the Marathon on the Sunday. After experiencing the “Travelling Fit” operations for Berlin, Tokyo and now New York, it is clear you guys are doing a consistently professional job, all have been flawless experiences (from our perspective anyway!) Again, thanks to all the Travelling Fit team, you all do a great job of looking after we the sweaty mob.

Thank you for enabling me to participate in the Berlin Marathon. I had a blast and ran way ahead of my fitness level to finish in 3:09. Logistics went according to plan and the hotel was both comfortable and well located. We were so well looked after I felt like an Olympian. I was also delighted to listen to Charlie, one of Deek’s indigenous runners. I congratulate Travelling Fit for supporting the cause. I remain in awe of Deek’s humane contribution to the Aboriginal plight and I respect Charlie absolutely. He spoke brilliantly and connected very meaningfully with the entire audience. A sincere thank you once again and congratulations on running such a wonderful business.
