Born and raised in Great Britain, Jacqui has worked on and off in the travel industry for more than 20 years. She has traveled extensively and lived in numerous countries around the world including Dubai, South Africa, Jakarta and Uruguay before settling in the U.S. in 1980. Passionate about running and adventure she has completed more than 50 marathons and has competed in ultra events such as the Leadville 100, the Himalayan Stage Race, Alaska's Iditasport 100 and 350 and the Yukon Arctic Ultra, to name a few. Addicted to the outdoors, Jacqui lives in Boulder, Colorado where she enjoys trail running, hiking, climbing, winter sports and yoga. One of her most memorable experiences is spending the summer of 2010 rehabilitating lions in Zimbabwe.
This was my second trip with Marathon Tours and once again it didn't disappoint. Everything, start to finish, was well organized and the delivery was exactly as outlined. Great hotels: centrally located for easy expo & race access, and to Berlin sites and attractions. Enjoyed and appreciated the reception and pre-race dinner, bus tour, transportation to & from the 6km breakfast run, etc., etc. It was great to meet Nicole (especially after exchanging emails for so many months/years), along with Alyssa, Jacqui, etc. . Also to connect with fellow Canadians Christine and Paul. I appreciated Jeff's personal participation in all the events and his vision for the future of the company and recognition of the staff who will make it all possible.
Everything was fantastic! Jacqui was friendly, knowledgeable and very welcoming and inclusive. Accommodations & meals were great! Will definitely use marathon tours again and recommend to other runners!
Our host at the hotel and running event, Jacqui, was a touch of first class. She made us comfortable and at ease for this event.
This was my first international trip let alone running my first international marathon and I am extremely grateful for the overall experience Marathon Tours (Jane and Jacqui) provided. From the hotel & tour in London, to the hotel and tour in Edinburgh, the trip was absolutely incredible. I will definitely book with you again in the future and also recommend you to many of my running friends.
Jacqui and Kelly are off the charts amazing....their knowledge, care, attention to all the details, and they are just fun people. They are a major part of the experience and I couldn't have imagined doing Africa or another more intimate trip like Easter Island without them.
Need more electrolytes on the course. Jacqui and Karen were fabulous! Jacqui went the extra mile time and time again.
There were a lot of moving parts to this trip but all went according to plan. Jacqui and Karen were awesome! Also, I was very impressed with the quality and quantity of food throughout the trip and all the accommodations. The people of Kenya (and Rwanda) were all extremely welcoming and just plain wonderful. The service provided everywhere we went was exceptional.
Jacqui's stories and travels were amazing. We found great deals in a store she shops in Rome. Jacque walked us to the start of the Rome marathon. I felt she truly cared about us and saw us off. Traveling in a tour group is so much more fun! This was a group of fit people with a bunch of energy. It was not a bunch of "retired-acting" people. I made new friends and felt safer. I'm not afraid to travel alone with Marathon Tours. I can't talk anyone into Africa. I may have to go alone. Thank you for wonderful memories.
Jacqui was amazing. She's approachable and knowledgeable. I appreciate her enthusiasm for running marathons and for runners, and also for taking adventures. All of the tour guides we had were passionate about Ireland and open about sharing their knowledge of the country.
Nicole did set up the train and hotel for our extension to Venice after Florence and that was excellent. We ran into Jacqui in Venice also and even though she was on her "own time", she was fabulous about answering questions we had about future trips and places with Marathon Tours. We also did a tour to/through Vatican City which was very nice.
