Comrades Marathon

Comrades Marathon & Running Holidays

If you have a passion for running, why not combine a running event in one of our iconic destinations, with post-race sightseeing or a safari.
 
In South Africa you can enjoy participating in the Comrades Marathon - one of the world's most famous ultra marathons. We can arrange your accommodation and race transfers, as well as assist with pre-race registration & route familiarisation. Our private guides can also provide transfers for your family on race day, if needed - but you are responsible for your own race application.
 
The Comrades Marathon is run between Durban & Pietermaritzburg, with the direction changing each year. Another iconic race is the Two Oceans in South Africa, which is run around the spectacular Cape Peninsula. There are also a variety of other races - from marathons to half marathons and 10 km runs - including the Marakele Marathon that runs through a game reserve in Limpopo.
 
The Lewa Marathon in Kenya can be combined with a Big Five safari in the famous Masai Mara. The Kilimanjaro Marathon takes place in Tanzania and combines well with a safari on the open plains of the Serengeti, or head to the turquoise beaches of Zanzibar.
 
You can participate in the scenic Victoria Falls Marathon, followed by a safari in Zimbabwe or Botswana. Or combine the Mihingo Marathon in Lake Mburo National Park in Uganda, with a safari, gorilla tracking or white water rafting down the River Nile.
 
Latin America and India also offer a host of running holidays, including the high altitude Inca Trail Marathon in Peru.
 
Your Comrades Marathon, Two Oceans or other running holiday can be tailor made to meet your exact requirements. Call us on 01582 766122 for ideas and a quote.
