“We are delighted to welcome Marathon Tours & Travel to the England Athletics family as our Official Travel Partner. This is the first time we have brought together all travel services under one partnership, and we are incredibly excited to be working with such a prestigious travel group.

Brendan Fox, Managing Director for Marathon Tours & Travel expressed:
