Great Run Series

Since 1999, we have been proud to be the Official Travel Supplier to the Great Run Event Series (which includes the World's Greatest Half Marathon...The Great North Run).

The Great Run Company specialise in the development, design, organisation and rights management of mass participation and televised sporting events.  The journey began with Brendan Foster (Chairman) being inspired to take up running after watching a barefoot Abebe Bikila win the 1960 Olympic Marathon in Rome.  During his time as an athlete he ran in the Round the Bays event in New Zealand, and decided to bring the concept back to his native North East.

From its flagship Great North Run event, the company has grown to consist of a portfolio of events that now extend over multiple days and include not just mass participation events but family activity, with elite competition on the Great CityGames track and associated Great Swim and Great Cycle events.

XTERRA European Tour

Appointed in March 2017 as the Official XTERRA European Tour Travel Partner, our primary aim is to enhance the experience of all XTERRA competitors and spectators by combining our vast triathlon-related travel knowledge with the personal approach that matters.

XTERRA is the world’s leading off-road multisport event. XTERRA combines swimming, biking and cross-country racing in a stunning extreme sport for enthusiasts as well as for professionals. It is a full-featured version of the traditional triathlon for real survivors.

Ironman Series

Since 2005, we have been proud to be the Official Travel Partner to the European IRONMAN Tour.

Whoever finishes first, We'll call him the IRONMAN. During an awards banquet for the Waikiki Swim Club, John Collins, a Naval Officer stationed in Hawai`i, and his wife Judy, began playing with the idea of combining the three toughest endurance races on the island into one race. They decided to issue a challenge to see who the toughest athletes were: swimmers, bikers, or runners. On February 18, 1978, 15 competitors, including Collins, came to the shores of Waikiki to take on the first-ever IRONMAN challenge. 

European Triathlon Union

Since 2012, we have been proud to be the Official European Triathlon Travel Partner.

The European Triathlon Union (ETU) was established in 1984 to develop the future of triathlon across Europe.  There are currently forty two national federations affiliated to the ETU and that number is steadily increasing as we work hard to continue to develop and support emerging national federations.

The ETU is the European governing body for the Olympic sport of Triathlon and for all related multisport such as Paratriathlon, Aquathlon, Duathlon, Long Distance Triathlon, Long Distance Duathlon, Cross Triathlon and Winter Triathlon.
