You’re in Great Company

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

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll hurt! The challenge was immense, I had only ever run a couple of marathons, but training for run777 taught me what my body was capable of. Even before starting the 7 marathons I had smashed my PB by 20min, lost two and a half stone, and at 37yrs old, was in the best shape of my life. This fundamentally changed me, what an adventure, what a lifetime experience.

An explosive week of variety, camaraderie and views! A real rawness to these events, a feeling of getting back to what is important and actually taking time to breath. The camaraderie was cracking, the crew were excellent and the views and terrain were out of this world.
