Marathon Tours & Travel was recently awarded as the first Official Travel Agency and Tour Operator for the Abbott World Marathon Majors. We are thrilled to expand our reach to help even more runners achieve their goals. Our packages are designed with the runner and their travel companions in mind.


Founded by Boston runner and travel visionary Thom Gilligan in 1979, MTT is a longstanding recognized leader and innovator in the destination travel industry for runners and their supporters. With some of our earliest trips being to the New York City Marathon and Boston Marathon, we have decades of experience working with some of the largest marathon events in the world.

Expanding to better meet client needs, MTT is now truly a global running travel company with offices in Boston (USA), Manchester (UK), Adelaide (Australia), and Shanghai (China). We host a variety of our own events and are an approved International Tour Operator to many marathons and other running events, including the AbbottWMM races.


The Seven Continents Club® (SCC), founded in 1995 with the creation of our inaugural Antarctica Marathon®, started with the aim to help those interested in running a marathon on each of the seven continents accomplish their goal. Now with over 11,000 members from 100 different countries, the SCC has evolved to become a VIP global frequent traveler club for runners that have a passion for traveling to the top destination running events around the globe. One of the many benefits of the SCC is the early registration period for events that are in high demand, such as the AbbottWMM. If you’re interested in joining our package with a guaranteed entry for the AbbottWMM races or other highly sought-after events, the SCC is best way to secure a spot with MTT.

As the non-runner of our group, I found the experience so amazing and memorable. Thank you so much for an outstanding job, making my husband’s dream of completing the six majors come true. It was an absolutely wonderful time and it was wonderful to meet up with other runners from previous excursions (London) here in Tokyo. – 2023 Tokyo Client
