The Chicago Marathon made your blood boil. The Marine Corps Marathon sold out in a blink of an eye. And after multiple rejections, it looks like you have a greater chance of winning the Powerball than winning a spot in the New York Marathon.

Perhaps it’s time to set your running legs further afield and you can count on Marathon Tours & Travel for a huge head start. A full service travel agency, Marathon Tours specializes in running packages to the most exotic destinations, including Easter Island, Venice and Dubai.

Offering over 25 destinations, you can run through a game park in Kenya, enjoy the red and white libations at the aid stations in Bordeaux or take a step back in time as you clamor up the Great Wall of China. And for runners really looking to go the distance, there’s the infamous Antarctica Marathon (currently accepting waitlists for 2009). Not just for marathoners, Marathon Tours caters to runners of all distances including 5K, 10K and half-marathons.

Marathon Tours’ guides are all experienced runners themselves, who are eager and able to serve as course advisor, cheerleader, and concierge. Taking care of all the nitty gritty details like entry fees, flights, accommodations, transportation to and from the race, local sightseeing, etc. …. so the only thing that you need to sweat over…. is your training.
