No.1 rated training app Runna & Sports Tours join forces!

Sports Tours International, Europe’s no.1 Tour Operator for runners, and ground breaking training app Runna have joined forces to help everyday athletes become outstanding.

Runna will help Sports Tours customers prepare for the biggest marathons and half marathons in the world by providing personalised training plans and holistic coaching including strength, nutrition, and injury management advice.

Every Sports Tours runner entering an Abbott World Marathon Major in 2023/24 will receive a free trial subscription to the no.1 rated Runna app, while the wider Sports Tours community will benefit from expert content provided by the Runna coaching team that includes British Olympian Steph Davis – Team GB’s fastest marathon runner at the Tokyo 2020 games.

Sports Tours and Runna are also launching an exclusive package to the 2024 Paris Marathon for Runna’s vibrant running community. From group training sessions before the event to pre-race seminars and a post-race party, the three-day trip will be an opportunity for Runna users to train for one of the most prestigious marathons in Europe.

Ben Parker, Runna Head Coach, said: “Whether it’s finishing a World Marathon Major for the first time in Berlin or completing their Six Star journey in Boston, we’re incredibly excited to help Sports Tours runners achieve on the biggest stage possible.

“Partnering with Sports Tours has also allowed us to bring the Runna community together by creating an event for everyone to target. In Olympic year, we can’t think of a more fitting location to bring our community together than Paris.”

Natasha Haggart, Marketing Director, Sports Tours International said: “We already take huge pride in providing industry-leading support for runners at the biggest marathons on the planet.

“Runna’s world-class coaching team will take this to a whole new level, by providing bespoke training plans and coaching advice as our customers prepare for the ultimate challenge of running a marathon.”

Founded by Dom Maskell and Ben Parker – two best friends with a dream of sharing their love of running – with early backing from double world-record holder,  and ultra-athlete Joshua Patterson, Runna uses advanced coaching technology combined with real-world conditioning, running, and strengthening plans and workouts from top running coaches to personalise every user’s experience based on their ability, goals, and schedule.

As the official overseas tour operator to the TCS London Marathon and partner with the Six Abbott World Marathon Majors (Berlin, Chicago, New York, Tokyo, London and Boston), Sports Tours International has sent runners to the biggest mass-participation in the world for 50 years.
