HOW TO TRAIN FOR YOUR SPRING MARATHON DURING THE WINTER MONTHS: WITH OUR AMBASSADORS!
Travelling by yourself can be one of the most exciting and uplifting experiences, no matter your age, and can massively benefit your mental health, helping you grow as an individual. It is an opportunity to switch off and disconnect, improve your self-confidence, appreciate your own company and meet new people. We encourage solo travellers to join our tours and take advantage of our travel packages that offer a free ‘Twin to Share’ service where you pay to share a room rather than the supplement for a single room. This option means that we pair you up with another athlete of the same sex so you can enjoy the event without having to pay the single occupancy supplement.
‘Twin to Share’ is a free service that we provide where we pair up people within our group of runners or cyclists of the same sex to share a twin room (a room with 2 single beds). This allows people to make new friends and to make the trip more affordable by not having to pay a supplement for the single occupancy of a room. Please remember that all our customers are taking part in an event, so it is important that everyone gets a restful night.
Here are some recommendations to ensure you get the most out of your trip;
Please do not book this service if you are aware that you have personal habits which could disrupt the other person’s rest and therefore enjoyment of the event. We recommend that you book a single room in this case.
We welcome all nationalities across our running and cycling events and aim is to take care of all the event related logistics so you can focus on realising your goals from setting a PB to just having a great time with some like-minded people.
You can be as independent as you want to be with the freedom to explore or join our host and the rest of the group to enjoy some group based activities.
To ensure that you get the most out of the event our staff provide welcome meetings and race briefings on many of our tours. These meetings also let you meet the other people in our group so our tours are ideal for anybody from solo travellers to groups.
Our office-based teams in Manchester, Dublin and Paris are available to assist if you have any questions before you travel and our expert reps will be on hand to support and guide you during your trip and are there with you from the start line to the finish line and will support throughout, in our dedicated Cheer Zone so that your friends and family are supported too, and if you are a solo traveller, we will give you an extra cheer!
This is the first time I have used Sports Tours and I am really impressed. The efficiency, the friendliness, the off-the-cuff vital advice all made this toughie as enjoyable as it can. Few companies have retained their ethos since covid and this is one of them.
The organisation from the Sports Tours team was amazing from start to finish – every member of staff from the airport team, mechanics, organisers, drivers and drink stop team could not do enough for us all and they never stopped smiling! Please pass on my thanks to everyone! All 8 of us finished (somehow!!) and if we are ever stupid enough to ride it again we will be using you guys to book.
For 3 years, through cancellations, lockdowns and multiple flight cancellations, Sports Tours International have remained responsive and professional – all staff and especially yourself, Vicki, very helpful and efficient, and the organisation and hotel set-up was first-class, I’d not hesitate to book with Sports Tours again.
Every year we take thousands of participants and spectators to some of best and most popular events around the world. Whether it’s achieving a new goal, or a challenge on your best times, we create great experiences and memories that will last a life time.
