Sports Tours International USA

In 2024, Sports Tours International joined forces with Destination Marathons, creating one of the world’s largest running communities. Every year we take thousands of runners to the most popular events on the planet including the Abbott World Marathon Majors. Proudly based in Charlotte, NC, Sports Tours International is the Official Overseas Tour Operator for the TCS London Marathon.

 

 

 

The story of Sports Tours International is a tale of visionaries. Our founder and  Irishman, Vince Regan started organising his first trips to international marathons back in the 1970s. He was an ex-international marathon runner himself and could see the value in people traveling to far off places to participate in marathons.

Being a well known figure within the running community, Vince also became involved in the creation of the London Marathon and took responsibility for managing the London Marathon international runner programme – a role the company still fulfils today.

In 2024, Sports Tours was proud to join forces with Destination Marathons and its founder Mark Janik as the two companies merged. The driving ambition was to make the biggest mass-participation events in the world more accessible to American runners, starting with the TCS London Marathon.
