Abbott World Marathon Majors

Abbott World Marathon Majors

The Abbott World Marathon Majors (AbbottWMM) is a series consisting of six of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world: Tokyo Marathon, Boston Marathon presented by Bank of America, TCS London Marathon, BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, Bank of America Chicago Marathon and TCS New York City Marathon. The organizers of these events are united in their effort to advance the sport, raise awareness of its elite athletes and increase the level of interest in competitive marathon racing among running enthusiasts. Two marathons currently in the Candidacy stage include the Sydney Marathon and the Cape Town Marathon. For athletes across the globe, competing in an Abbott World Marathon Majors race is a significant accomplishment. Once you have successfully completed the six events, you will earn the Six Star Finisher Certificate and Six Star Finisher Medal.

Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) has a deep history of bringing runners and their companions to races on all seven continents including those in the AbbottWMM series. MTT’s first group lined up at the start of the New York City Marathon more than 45 years ago. Today, we are the official hotel provider of the Boston Marathon and are approved International Tour Operators for Tokyo, London, Berlin, Chicago, New York City, Sydney, and Cape Town offering guaranteed entries with our accommodation packages. We have a continued commitment to help all runners, from leisurely marathoners to Age Group World Champions (AGWC), pursue their AbbottWMM Six Star goals.

Working closely with the AbbottWMM Team and the individual races, our goal is to enhance runners and their traveling companions’ experience while they pursue their aspirational running goals. We provide guaranteed entry to each of the AbbottWMM races, offer convenient hotels and activities customized for each location. We strive to provide clients with a high-quality experience at a great value where they can enjoy camaraderie amongst their peers, while enduring minimal stress.

With offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, we are able to provide the highest level of service to our clients, both runners and their supporters. Our global reach includes members of the Seven Continents Club®️ who reside in more than 100 countries, plus those residing in countries that lack tour companies specializing in services designed specifically for runners and their travel companions.

Recently it was announced that MTT is the co-title sponsor of the AbbottWMM Age Group World Rankings and Championship Program.  We are thrilled and honored to be part of this prestigious event, which occurs annually with 2024 taking place in conjunction with the Sydney Marathon.  The fourth annual championship will feature more than 1,800 of the world’s best age group competitors, who qualified from over 370 races worldwide during the previous 2023 season. In response to the demand, MTT offers a VIP Package specifically for AGWC athletes that includes hotel accommodations, special social events including a welcome reception and pre-race dinner, transportation to the start, and access to the VIP Finish Tent. Learn more here.

Additionally, we are proud to be designated as the Official Travel Partner for the Abbott World Marathon Majors. To continue serving the needs of those on the Six Star Finisher Medal journey, we created packages specifically for runners and their companions who gained entry through the AbbottWMM drawing process. This uniform package is offered across all our offices for each of the AbbottWMM races, and feature accommodations, a pre-race dinner, post-race celebration and more.
