Sports Tours International Invites Runners to Half-Marathons in Spring 2019 in London, Paris and Berlin

MANCHESTER, UK, Oct. 26, 2018– Three European capitals offer dedicated runners the chance to ply their passion by running half marathons in combo with sightseeing.

Through the UK-based Sports Tours International, runners can combine a city break with a competition that distance-wise isn’t too challenging.Sports Tours International (https://www.sportstoursinternational.co.uk/) specializes in helping runners and cyclists gain entry to coveted competitions worldwide.

“The main difference between a full and half marathon is the impact on the runners. Those doing full marathons are advised to keep off their legs in the days leading up to a race. This isn’t great when traveling with a non-runner who’s keen to see the sites of London, Paris or Berlin,” said Ross Litherland, Sports Marketing Manager for Sports Tours International.

The first race on Sports Tours International’s spring 2019 half marathon calendar includes London’s newest half marathon:

The route that starts at Tower Bridge courses through four London boroughs: Southwark, Lewisham, Tower Hamlets and Greenwich, ending by the Cutty Sark. Travel packages including guaranteed entry for overseas runners are from £369 per person double. (A non-running partner can deduct £150 from the advertised prices as a non-runner discount.)

Included are guaranteed entry into the 2019 Vitality Big Half, daily breakfasts and all hotel taxes. In 2018 there were more than 11,000 runners of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, many of whom came from the four London boroughs the event passes through. They were led from the front by Sir Mo Farah who beat a world-class field that included 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon winner Daniel Wanjiru to win the race. The Vitality Big Half has been created by London Marathon Events Ltd., the world’s leading organizer of mass participation sports events that include the Virgin Money London Marathon, the Prudential RideLondon festival of cycling and Swim Serpentine.For details see https://www.sportstoursinternational.co.uk/events/the-vitality-big-half/

Occurring on the same day across the channel is…

March 10 - Paris Half Marathon 2019, supported by a two or three-night lodging package at Hotel de La Porte Doreen near the event start and finish. Arate from £215 per person double includes accommodation and daily breakfast. An early bird race entry fee booking is £50. The ‘Semi de Paris’ is an IAAF Bronze Labelevent famous for its iconic landmarks and romantic culture. Some 40,000 runners are expected to course through continuous musical entertainment. For details see https://www.sportstoursinternational.co.uk/events/paris-half-marathon/

The third event now open for registration is…

April 7 - Berlin Half Marathon 2019 that repeats a tradition first begun in 1985, today attracting over 30,000 runners annually, with 200,000 spectators cheering runners on. Sports Tours International’s guests lodge for three nights at the 4-star Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten in the heart of Berlin, ideally placed for the Berlin Half Marathon weekend. The per person double rate is from £279. Included are the option to buy a guaranteed entry into the 2019 Berlin Half Marathon; the option to purchase a timing chip, event t-shirt and medal engraving as optional extra’s; and services of a Sports Tours International Representative over the marathon weekend. An early booking fee is £40.00 per entry. For details see https://www.sportstoursinternational.co.uk/events/berlin-half-marathon/

Sports Tours International Rolls Out June UK Running Festival – Tour of Tameside near Manchester

MANCHESTER, UK, May 8, 2018– Runners of all ability levels are invited to sprint through time near a Bronze Age burial mound, a 5th century Roman ditch and the ruins of a 12th century castle in a four-day running festival June 14-17, the Tour of Tameside, in Tameside near Manchester, UK.

Sports Tours International (https://www.sportstoursinternational.co.uk/) as the host of the June 14-17, 2018, Tour of Tameside can sort out all of the entry and travel arrangements for this annual celebration of running expected to draw hundreds of international aficionados this early summer. This is just one of a series of events owned and operated by Sports Tours International that specializes in helping runners and cyclists gain entry to coveted global competitions.

“We don’t just take runners to events around the world; we organise events ourselves and our expertise shows. Here at Sports Tours International we live and breathe sport,” said the company’s Head of Product and Operations Alex de Waard, from offices in Manchester, minutes from Tameside. He notes that that there are direct flights from North America to Manchester, the UK’s second largest city.

A variety of running routes and terrains on roads and hills will challenge participants physically and mentally, with all stages carefully chosen to be achievable for runners of all abilities. The Tour of Tameside, founded in 1983 by Olympian and marathon legend Ron Hill, was re-energized when Sports Tours International took over the reins. This running event has been called “The Ultimate Running Challenge.”

The Tour of Tameside begins with a 10k cross-country run on the eve of June 14. The trail takes in two superb local country parks and a variety of running terrain including a steep gradient and long flats on surfaces ranging from tarmac to cobblestones to woodchip paths. A six-mile Hell on the Fell Race is held on June 15 with an evening start that pits runner against the landscape, taking on the steep climb and steep descent – a guaranteed challenge for all ability levels. It ends later that night with a ceremony crowning the male, female and age category winners. The Hero Half Marathon has a mid-morning start on June 16. Runners will cover the 13.1 mile half marathon journey on a trail that parallels a disused railway line. The Tour of Tameside’s finale is the Dr. Ron Hyde 7-Mile Race on the morning of June 17. Afterwards, all runners and their guests will retire into Hyde Town Hall for the post-race presentation ceremony and to toast the four days of running.

Sports Tours International suggests that after this excitement in Tameside concludes that runners and their companions tag on a break to Edinburgh and Scotland in the north, explore Britain’s beautiful Lake District or scoot on down to London.
