What is Marathon Travel?

13 December 2016

Marathon Travel and Marathon Tours are personalised packages for runners, partners or family....

Five countries, Six Marathons

The founders and directors of Africa Marathons have over 35 years of combined experience in the Africa travel industry and have built up detailed and in-depth knowledge of 16 countries on the African continent. We promote and offer packages to running events in 5 of these countries at present : The Comrades Ultra Marathon and the Cape Town Marathon in South Africa, the Street Child Marathon in Sierra Leone, the Kilimanjaro Marathon in Tanzania, the Uganda Marathon and the Victoria Falls Marathon in Zimbabwe. As well as the full Marathons mentioned above, there are also Half Marathons, 10km/5km and fun runs at most events if you are not quite ready for a full distance. All of these events are run against some of the most beautiful and iconic scenery that Africa has to offer. With our parent company, Tailormade Africa, we also offer pre and post marathon packages to take advantage of being in the most exciting, vibrant and wild continent in the world.
