You’re in Great Company

Learn what some of our runners have to say about our tours.

Waking up on a crisp morning and doing our 3rd marathon around Lake Como is something that will stay with me forever. Breathing in the cool air, coming over the Alps passing into clear view of Lake Como was just magnificent

Nick Shraga2019 Finisher + 2021 Entrant

Running on top of the Alps and through Liechtenstein with an intense descent, a true challenge and reward in one, made this tour for me. It really is postcard stuff!

Not sure?

You asked, we answered

Here’s our frequently asked questions

Never run a multi-day event

Many of our runners had only run a marathon. Follow our Ultimate Training plan and get yourself ready in 20 weeks. It’s definitely achievable

Like a bit of comfort

Our runs take us through 7 countries in a coach, and at the end of each, you are welcomed into a specifically chosen hotel with a planned dinner and breakfast taken care of.

Traveling is fun with family/friends

We recognise that travel is fun with family, whilst we promise you will make many friends on our tours, sometimes you just want to bring a +1

My life is super busy

Our training plan works with your busy life, keeping long runs for the weekend and incorporating a lot of cross training during the week. Swap out the train for a bike ride or take an early morning swim.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We work hard to reduce our impact on this stunning world so we travel between countries in 1 coach which means our numbers are limited to enable this.

How big are these tours

We like intimacy and getting to know people so we keep it small. Our groups are made up of around 20–25 people which is the perfect size for getting to know each other.
