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.

Grant Sidwell2018 Finisher + 2020 Runner

run777 was a rollercoaster of emotion, an immersive journey of self-discovery and an accelerated bonding experience: forging fond memories, fortitude and friendships to last a lifetime!

Rob Cloete2018 Finisher

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.

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.
