ABBOTT WORLD MARATHON MAJORS (AbbottWMM) is delighted to announce Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) as its first Official Travel Agency and Tour Operator.

Hot on the heels of MTT’s title sponsorship of the AbbottWMM Age Group World Rankings and Championships, the worldwide travel operator for marathon runners will now partner with AbbottWMM to deliver best-in-class experiences to runners on their Six Star journey.

More than 4,000 runners are expected to complete their sixth AbbottWMM race in 2024, with another 10,000 athletes just one star away from earning the coveted Six Star medal.

Runners earning Majors places through AbbottWMM’s dedicated draws – as well as those notifying AbbottWMM through their runner portal that they are already confirmed for their sixth Major – will be able to access special MTT packages for each destination.

“This partnership was the logical next step in our relationship with MTT,” said AbbottWMM CEO Dawna Stone. “We are continually seeking ways to elevate the experience for runners on their Six Star journey. Joining forces with the MTT team to deliver experiential packages to our community will help us achieve that for this dedicated and inspiring group of runners.”

Jeff Adams, President of MTT said: “Our team is passionate about making our runners’ experiences as smooth and memorable as possible when they join us for race week. We recognize the same enthusiasm in the AbbottWMM team for celebrating their Six Star finisher community and the thousands of runners on that journey. We can now take their experiences to a new level with this partnership between two organizations with that shared aim.”

Chris Miller, Divisional Vice President of Global Brand Strategy & Innovation for Abbott said: “Abbott is all about celebrating what good health can help you accomplish. The marathon is a wonderful example of that, and we are proud to work alongside MTT to continue to ensure runners on their Six Star journey are celebrated for their incredible achievements.”

MTT’s Six Star hopeful packages will be offered immediately to runners successful in the AbbottWMM draws for a places in the 2024 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, Bank of America Chicago Marathon and TCS New York City Marathon.
