DESTINATION SPORT EXPERIENCES TAKES ON MARATHON TOURS & TRAVEL 


We are delighted to announce that we have joined forces with international running travel specialists Marathon Tours & Travel, adding even more global running events and opportunities to our calendar.


We are expanding globally with Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT), who have 43 years as the leader in the destination marathon travel industry for runners and their supporters. With this expansion, our  running portfolio will be rebranded as Marathon Tours & Travel and is now set to offer more than 35 additional new and exciting races to their calendar, including the Antarctica Marathon® and the Patagonia Running Festival Marathon. As part of this development, the combined group offices operating in Manchester, Australia, and Boston will see an expected 50% increase in staff headcount to manage the new portfolio.


Marathon Tours & Travel, founded in 1979 by Thom Gilligan, has grown to success through their offering of the best in customer experience for the thousands of travellers they serve daily. As part of this new deal, Marathon Tours & Travel will be created in the UK and Australia to help ever more runners globally, and to manage the Seven Continents Club®, the only frequent traveller club for endurance event participants. As Thom transitions to the new role of Chairman, he is trusting the legacy of his company within Brendan Fox, MTT President Jeff Adams and their teams. 


Our growth with MTT will allow us to fast-track our mission to offer customers the opportunity to ‘Do Something Extraordinary’. The new expanded group is committed to providing exceptional customer service, helping customers accomplish their running goals, enjoy authentic cultural experiences with like-minded people and remain innovative in the sports travel industry


Marathon Tours & Travel Founder Thom Gilligan said, “It is an exciting time for not only Marathon Tours & Travel, but also the thousands of global clients we service daily through travelling and running, as well through our Seven Continents Club®, the only frequent traveller club for endurance event participants. We now have the opportunity to help even more runners and their travel companions accomplish their adventure travel goals, while continuing to offer exceptional experiences at an excellent value.”


Brendan Fox, Managing Director of DSE shared, “Marathon Tours & Travel is by far the best travel company in the mass participation marketplace. Thom, Jeff Adams and the fantastic MTT team have built an amazing brand. Our new and exciting partnership will help additional runners, cyclists and triathletes travel to more events across the world, giving them the high-quality service MTT customers have experienced over all these decades.”
