Founded in 1979, Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) is a longstanding recognized leader and innovator in the destination travel industry for runners and their supporters. Most recently, it expanded globally through a merger with Destination Sport Group (DSG). A British based company, DSG encompasses leading sports travel companies, which helps thousands of clients travel to sport events around the world, specifically in the endurance running, cycling and triathlon sectors through its Destination Sport Experiences (DSE) brand. In addition to its current headquarters in Boston, MA USA, MTT has expanded its worldwide footprint with offices operating under the business name of Marathon Tours & Travel in Manchester, United Kingdom and Australia.
Its office in Boston, MA – the home of the world's oldest annual marathon – will continue to be the headquarters as the official travel agency for many of the world's most popular running events including the B.A.A. Boston Marathon, TCS Money London Marathon, TCS New York City Marathon, and many others.
Marathon Tours & Travel is additionally an event management company. It created and manages the Antarctica Marathon®️ & Half-Marathon and the Madagascar Marathon & Half-Marathon, which are two of several adventure events now offered. Two other important events in their portfolio include the Patagonia Running Festival and the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya.
The Antarctica events, established in 1995, 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.
Our global team (USA, UK and Australia) 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. The experience amongst the current Team far outweighs others in the endurance sports travel industry. We look forward to our continued growth and providing the best high-quality experience at the best value to YOU – our client.
