Over the last six years, we’ve taken runners all over the world to participate in races, creating fantastic running weekends which are as much about exploring, great food and meeting great new people.
Istanbul to Paris, Palma to Lake Garda, these are just some of the locations we’ve been. We take care of everything from booking the hotels, sourcing the very best places to eat and drink, not to mention some fantastic optional excursions leaving you free to enjoy the race and a weekend away.

Ethiopian Training Holiday, incorporating The Great Ethiopia Run, 10km November 11-19th 2019
This 6-day package tour will be like nothing you have ever experienced. You’ll get to travel to Bekoji, featured in the renowned documentary Town of Runners, and run with some of the girls who are supported by the foundation, Girls Gotta Run.
We’ll then visit the Rift Valley enroute back to YaYa Village, a training camp owned by Haile Gebrselassie on the outskirts of Addis from where you can run directly into the forests. It has it’s own gym, swimming pool and cinder running track. You’ll even be able to attend some training sessions with some of Ethiopia’s top athletes and/or have guided runs through the forest.
We then spend the final few days in the city over race weekend where you’ll get to at a traditional Ethiopian restaurant. A once in a lifetime experience.

WHAT GRTW CUSTOMERS HAVE SAID ABOUT OUR TRIPS:
‘I signed up for the GRTW Palma trip because I thought it was a great challenge to do my first half marathon and make a weekend of it. The trip itself was amazing, we had a beautiful hotel, went to lovely restaurants as a group and had time and space to do our own thing. Smaller groups went out on different trips and at times we’d all bump into each other, or give each the run down of top tips we’d experienced in case anyone else fancied doing the same thing. Other times we all just sunbathed or drank cocktails. It was fab! Standing in the sun with our medals, beers and bananas after the race with all the girls and their smiley faces was one of the best moments!’
The evening celebratory meal just topped it off, we had an amazing room in a historic restaurant all to ourselves, drank too much wine and nattered all evening about our race experiences. Everyone was so supportive, and we were all super proud of each other. I absolutely loved it!
‘Great organisation and the general information on where to go, what to do and see was excellent. I came to Lake Garda feeling very relaxed, always good on your first international race/weekend away on your own.’
‘GRTW trips are a must, not only to say that you have participated in an international race but you get to know some amazing women. And aside from the running side of things, you get to experience great food, drink, locations and sporting activities. I am already looking forward to the next one!’
‘If you’re wondering whether to go, just do it! You will have so much fun, sightsee somewhere new whilst running, meet and be inspired by like minded ladies and get a break from the old routine and do something different that you’ll always remember.‘
