Founded in 1979, Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) was the first company in the world to specialize in travel services for runners. Located in Boston, the home of the world's oldest marathon, MTT is the official North American travel agency for many of the world's most popular running events including the BAA Boston Marathon, Virgin London Marathon and many others.
A full service travel agency, MTT has many long-standing professional relationships with airlines, hotels and travel wholesalers.
In 1995 MTT 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 Seven Continents Club was formed to recognize these runners and to offer special VIP services to international globetrotting distance runners.
