45 Years experience
It all began with Vince Regan, our founder, organising our first trips to international marathons back in the 1970s. Vince was an ex-international marathon runner and he could see the appeal for runners in travelling to participate in marathons abroad. This happened just as the running craze started to boom.
One of his first trips was to the New York City Marathon, where Vince helped pioneer the concept of the International Travel Partner which is now very common today for both running and cycling events around the world. Vince also became involved in the creation of the London Marathon and Sports Tours International took the responsibility for looking after the entries for international runners. An honour we still hold to this day.
45 years later we’ve taken thousands of athletes to hundreds of events. We learn on every single trip and this helps us improve our service for all our customers, as we ensure the very best experience and great value for money.
As a result, we frequently receive excellent reviews and feedback from customers. We are very proud of this and New York City Marathon this year was no exception – please see below.
We are passionate about the Sports in the trips that we offer. Our dedicated team working for us in our UK office and overseas are keen runners and/or cyclists. Many train all year, race* or have raced and they love nothing more than using their experience to help customers.
*this includes Cyclo Sportives, Cyclo-Cross, MTB, Track Cycling, Time-Trialing, Ultra Races, Marathons, Triathlons including Ironman, Fell-Races, 10ks and of course fun runs!
As dedicated runners and cyclists, we are committed to providing the very best customer service and ensuring everyone has a brilliant time with us. All staff are first aid trained and our drivers have received advanced driver training and many of our staff are multi-lingual.
Quality control and health and safety
We operate a stringent supplier selection process and all our hotels, transport providers and other suppliers are checked by us.
We actively encourage feedback from our customers and we strive to resolve complaints during the actual tour. If we do not manage to resolve any issues that you encounter to your satisfaction then it’s comforting to know that we abide by ABTA’s code of conduct.
