Passport; Race Kit; Marathon Tours UK; GO!!

The only thing better than running a marathon is to be a marathon tourist...

Many of us know that warm feeling of satisfaction after finishing a marathon. Then there is the added excitement of running in one of the iconic marathons as a tourist on a well-crafted tour with Marathon Tours UK. 

We think that if you are going to do a marathon, then do it right, and leave the logistics to the experts while you concentrate on the running – and the sights and sounds all around you – as you take your running experience to the next level.

Marathon Tours UK is part of a global sports travel group founded in 1979 with offices in Australia, the USA, and Manchester, and more than 43 years of experience offering travel services to runners and their travel companions to many of the world's most popular running events.

Now is the perfect time to set a goal to run an autumn 2023 marathon and train throughout the better weather and longer days of summer. Marathon Tours UK can make that dream a reality with more than 40 international trips to select from for your next running adventure.

All Marathon Tours UK trips include guaranteed race entry; selected accommodation; an experienced guide; ABTA protection and a Covid-19 Guarantee for peace of mind. Three of the hottest tickets this autumn are the BMW Berlin Marathon, the Dublin Marathon, and the TCS New York Marathon – early booking is recommended for any of these top-selling tours.

BMW Berlin Marathon (24 September) hardly needs any introduction. One of the six Abbott World Marathon Majors and linking the former East and West Germany via the Brandenberg Gate since 1990, this is world record central with a dozen global marks having been established on the flat, fast asphalt surface, including the current men's mark of 2:01:09 by Eliud Kipchoge last year.

Irish Life Dublin Marathon (29 October) is a more homely affair with the true Irish hospitality for which 'Dublin's Fair City' is rightly renowned. This year a record 25,000 runners are expected and many more mature athletes will be chasing Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group qualifying points. Tour packages are available from £299.

TCS New York Marathon (5 November) is arguably the biggest and best of them all. If you are going to go big, go to the Big Apple, where you'll get more bang for your buck on UK bonfire night. Since the first New York Marathon in 1970, held entirely within Central Park, this race has become the world's largest marathon with 53,627 finishers in 2019. The course embraces all five boroughs of New York City with its famous start on both levels of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge and a spectacular finish in Central Park.
