If you didn’t get into the London Marathon 2022, have no fear… here are our top five alternatives!
Another year comes with hundreds of thousands of runners desperate for an entry for the TCS London Marathon left disappointed. But if you weren’t fortunate enough to win a ballot place, don’t despair! From World Marathon Majors to the most laid-back race on the planet, there are still plenty of brilliant marathons worth training for this year. These are our top alternatives to London.
If the draw of London is the atmosphere, Berlin is one of the world’s best supported marathons. The atmosphere in Europe’s party city is electric and the lightning-fast course is home to 11 world records past and present. It is Europe’s only other Abbott World Marathon Major and there’s still time to guarantee your place on the start line with Sports Tours International.
Be blown away by the Windy City! Each year, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon attracts some of the world’s best runners. With 45,000 entrants it’s also one of the world’s largest mass-participation events, every bit a match for London in terms of scale. So, if you’re looking for stature and prestige, this might just be the most sought-after finisher’s medal going.
The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon is set to be the next Abbott World Marathon Major – elevating an already renowned event to an equal status with London, Berlin, New York, Chicago and Tokyo. Cape Town could achieve the coveted major status in just three years and for the first time, we will be sending runners to the ‘Mother City’. Be swept along by the remarkable energy of the world’s most diverse city this September.
A capital city that’s as intimate as a village and as friendly as an Irish pub – Dublin is an iconic travel destination. Launched in 1980, the Dublin Marathon is Europe’s 4th largest marathon and a global running event, befitting of a major capital city. 20,000 runners from over 60 countries will take to the city centre course on October 30th 2022… and you could be one of them.
It’s not too late to take on the most demanding multi-day sportives in cycling🚵. Our entry only packages to the Haute Route Alps, Dolomites and Davos are still available and are cheaper than anywhere else🙌!
