Frequently Asked Questions
I am a first-time marathoner. Do you accept first-timers on your trips?
Of course. Many runners like the thrill of running their first marathon in some exotic location.
I only run half-marathons or 10Ks. Do you offer non-marathon trips?
Many events offer shorter events in addition to the marathon. Running shorter distances are even more fun when you are on vacation and the shorter distances are popular with the “supporters” on the trip.
Can you offer guaranteed entry to the Boston Marathon?
We cannot offer an entry since you must qualify for the Boston Marathon or be associated with one of the event’s official charities.
Do you offer just the entry?
No. We do not offer entry only into those hard-to enter-events.
I want to travel to a fun destination marathon but I plan to go solo. Is Marathon Tours & Travel the right choice for me?
Absolutely! We take the hassle out of travel and provide the memorable and safe experience that is achieved by traveling with like-minded, adventure-seeking runners. It’s fun seeing the sights and running with a group. If you prefer double occupancy packages but are traveling alone, ask us to see if there is a single traveler that can share a room.
Can I bring family and friends?
Of course. The event consumes a small portion of the time spent during your trip. There is always sightseeing and general activities that appeal to all travelers. Some of our trips especially appeal to families such as the Gold Coast Marathon (August) Safaricom Marathon (June) or the Walt Disney World Marathon (January). We also have quite a few runners who make that special trip with a parent.
