Set yourself a New Year’s challenge with Sports Tours International

Does anything sound more tempting than setting yourself new challenges and running objectives in 2022? Here at Sports Tours International, there’s nothing we love more than accompanying a wide range of runners and their individual skill sets to reach their sporting goals. So why not kick off 2022 with a bang by saying goodbye to your Christmas tree and hello to your running trainers?

The running calendar for 2022 is full of exciting events. Indeed, if you are willing to challenge yourself and step out of your own comfort zone, you’re in the right place! There are lots of big events we know and love that are making a comeback and here, at Sports Tours International, we simply can’t wait for you to get involved. Whilst sticking to things we know can be comforting, especially in these uncertain times, Sports Tours International believe that people are never truly aware of what they’re capable of until they try something new or take things to the next level. With this in mind, why not set yourself some New Year’s resolutions and sign up to some of the brilliant events below that are available for 2022. Let’s make this new year one to remember!

1. BMW Berlin Marathon

When? Sunday 25th September 2022
Why?

The BMW Berlin Marathon is a truly legendary event. Not only is it one of the 6 World Marathon Majors, but it is currently the Marathon World record course, and known as the fastest marathon in the world! The Marathon world- record has been broken an impressive 11 times at the BMW Berlin Marathon, and with the course being completely flat and traffic free, it is the perfect place to set your PB in 2022! The BMW Berlin Marathon will take you through the heart of the historical German capital, with the course taking you past some of East and West Berlin’s most magnificent sights, before a spectacular finish at Berlin’s most iconic landmark, the remarkable Brandenburg Gate. With its electric atmosphere, fastest marathon times, and the unique charm of the city, the BMW Berlin Marathon is a fantastic running challenge and achievement to strive towards this year!

Experience the fastest marathon in the world with Sports Tours International!

2. KBC Dublin Marathon

When? Sunday 30th October 2022
Why?

Take on this ever-growing marathon (now the 4th largest in Europe), around the beautiful streets of Dublin. The 26.2-mile course is largely flat, making it ideal for those attempting their first marathon or wishing to run a personal best. The fantastic course starts in Fitzwilliam Street Upper and winds through Ireland’s Capital, showing you the sights of Dublin, over the River Liffey and through the beautiful Phoenix Park and finishing in Merrion Square. The Dublin Marathon is sometimes referred to as the ‘Friendly Marathon’ because of the warm, friendly supportive nature of the crowds. This is certainly a marathon to add to your list! After an incredible 40th edition in 2019, which saw a record-breaking number of runners take to the streets of the Irish capital, the Dublin Marathon was sadly cancelled for 2 years due to COVID-19. The good news is, the KBC Dublin Marathon is back! In 2022, there will be around 25,000 up for grabs and a new lottery system implemented so we expect that competition for entry will be as fierce as ever.

Join us for a fantastic weekend in the Irish Capital, famous for its beautiful surroundings, its rich cultural history, the folk music, its shopping and perhaps most of all… for the wonderful Irish spirit and hospitality!

 3. Bank of America Chicago Marathon

When? Sunday 9th October 2022
Why?

Autumn 2022 is destined to be pretty MAJOR as far as marathon running is concerned. The Bank of America Chicago Marathon will be the third major to take place in 2022, following Berlin and London. The Bank of America Chicago Marathon welcomes thousands of participants from more than 100 countries and all 50 states, including a world-class elite field, top regional and Masters runners, race veterans, debut marathoners and charity participants.

The city of Chicago is bursting with things to keep you busy. The Marathon itself is one of the fastest in the world, and since Brigid Kosgei’s 2019 run, home of the women’s marathon world record!
