      Great experience to get to run down the mall and then the majority of the run actually being in the park.

      "They are well planned and organized..." - 2023

      They are well planned and organized. Couldn’t be better.

      "Our host at the hotel and running event, Jacqui..." - 2016

      Our host at the hotel and running event, Jacqui, was a touch of first class. She made us comfortable and at ease for this event.

      "Absolutely great race location..." - 2016

      "Superb help and guidance during the stay..." - 2015

      Was an excellent event which Marathon Tours representative provide a superb help and guidance during the stay.

      "Liked best? The whole experience of international running..." - 2015

      Liked best? The whole experience of international running……….learning so much about another culture and being able to see another part of the world through running.

      "The race was great..." - 2014

      The race was great. Good choice, and I’m glad you offered a half marathon. It’s much easier to do than a full marathon while on a destination trip since the recovery and prep is less, therefore more time to do other things around it – sightseeing, etc.

      "A great race and location..." - 2014

      A great race and location. Extremely well organized and well marked.

      "The staff at the hotel were just wonderful..." - 2014

      The staff at the hotel were just wonderful. I can’t even begin to say enough about them. Also thought the race was well-organized and I loved the route through the parks.
