England Athletics announces new partnership with Sports Tours International

England Athletics is delighted to announce Sports Tours International as its official active holiday partner. As a result of this partnership England Athletics registered athletes and affiliated clubs will be able to access special offers including if clubs plan to travel to overseas events.

The arrangement will help club members who like to participate in international running events, heading for training camps at fantastic warm weather destinations such as Club La Santa in Lanzarote or entering races organised by the Running Bee Foundation in the north west of England.

Sports Tours International has partnerships in place with many world-famous running events around the world such as the TCS New York City Marathon, the Boston Marathon and the BMW Berlin Marathon.

England Athletics chief executive Chris Jones said, “We know that many members of England Athletics affiliated clubs enjoy competing in overseas events and heading to warm weather training venues. This is something that includes those club athletes looking to find events and training facilities to enable them to achieve the highest level of performance and also those who enjoy using athletics and running as a way to make the most of their enjoyment of travel.”

Brendan Fox, Director of Sales and Customer Engagement at Sports Tours International said, “We’re delighted to be the official travel partner of England Athletics and are looking forward to supporting athletes and clubs alike with enhanced and discounted access to our current portfolio of events, competitions and training camps both nationally and internationally. Additionally, we have some very exciting plans as part of our partnership including the launch of a new virtual competition – details for which will be released within the coming months.”

In addition to running, Sports Tours International also offers trips to cycling, triathlon and swimming events, such as the Tour de France, IRONMAN Lanzarote and Swim Serpentine.
