Founded in 1979, Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) was the first innovator of creating a business that specializes in travel services for runners. Located in Boston, MA - the home of the world's oldest marathon - Marathon Tours & Travel is the official North American travel agency for many of the world's most popular running events including the BAA Boston Marathon, Virgin Money London Marathon, TCS New York City Marathon, and many others.
In 1995, Marathon Tours & Travel created the Antarctica Marathon and Half-Marathon, which generated a new genre of adventure runs. The Antarctica events enabled runners to set and reach the once unthinkable goal of finishing a marathon or half-marathon on all seven continents. Pursuantly, the official Seven Continents Club was formed to recognize these runners and to offer special VIP services to international globetrotting distance runners.
Most recently, Marathon Tours & Travel has launched The Runners Country Club, which was created to add new and adventurous destinations to our portfolio. The creation of this was due to input from our clients. Moving forward we will use the feedback and input, especially from our SCC members, to create the adventurous and exciting new opportunities for those like us who love to travel and run!
Our team of Trip Designers, Trip Leaders, and Trip Specialists makes each program we offer unique and special. We have sought out the best in the industry to make your experience all that it can be and then some. As a full service travel agency, Marathon Tours & Travel has many long-standing professional relationships with airlines, hotels and travel wholesalers.
