Sports Tours International Spring Marathons

Sports Tours International Invites Runners to Back-to-Back April 2019 Marathons in Rome and Paris

Two European capitals are gearing up for April 2019 when hordes of marathoners create their own spectacles while running through the ancient streets first of Rome and a few days later of Paris.

In 2018, the two cities combined hosted some 56,000 runners who took up the challenge of cobblestone streets and promenades flanked by some of the world’s most remarkable antiquities and architecture.

Sports Tours International, the pros at securing hotel packages and entry into prestigious running and cycling events around the globe, again this spring has lined up hotels (breakfasts included) convenient to the marathons and the services of its seasoned reps who will pamper and prep runners in advance of these events.

Rome Marathon 2019 is first up on Sunday, April 7. Every year 16,000 runners from over 130 countries come to Rome to explore ancient ruins such as the Roman Forum and the Colosseum during the Maratona di Roma weekend. Runners may obtain in advance a three-night (April 6-8) plan that includes overnight accommodations for three nights at the four-star Mercure Centro Colosseo, daily breakfasts, local assistance and a pasta party with beverages. The per person rate is from £529. Sports Tours International can also book entry into the marathon from now through Feb. 28 at £75 and from March 1-25 at £85. For details see here.

After running in the Eternal City, marathoners have until April 12 to get to the City of Lights for Paris Marathon 2019 on April 14. Sports Tours International stands ready to arrange accommodation in other places along the way. In Paris itself packages are available for two, three or four nights with two hotel options from £219 per person. With accommodation and daily breakfast come running rep services and guaranteed entry into the race. An early booking entry fee available for a limited time is £75 per entry. Staff service on the Paris Marathon includes a Marathon race briefing, daily hotel visits, an escorted trip to the Marathon Expo on Friday and Saturday and an escorted trip to the Marathon start.

The Paris Marathon, attracting over 40,000 runners annually, was established in 1977 during the beginning of a craze for big city, international marathons. There are now more than 23,000 runners from abroad, making up 40 percent of the field. The 26.2-mile running and sightseeing journey begins on one of the world’s most famous streets, Les Champs Elysées. From the foot of the Arc de Triomphe the route heads towards the Place de la Concorde. From the Rue de Rivoli runners sweep through the Place de la Bastille. Then comes a glimpse of greenery in the Bois de Vincennes which has views of Notre Dame and Eiffel Tower before reaching the finish line on the Avenue Foch.

Sports Tours International’s operations executive Simon is a huge fan of this race. Find out why he loves it here.

14 MINIMALIST TRAVEL POSTERS

Minimalism is all the rage at the moment thanks to writers like Fumio Sasaki, so why not apply that approach when planning your next vacation? There’s so much information out there that it can seem overwhelming when you start researching places to go, with so many offers, travel guides, blogs, photos, videos, podcasts and all the rest. Sometimes you just need to drown out the noise and focus on what’s important.

That’s why Expedia has created these minimalist travel posters to help you see the essential elements on 14 of the top vacation destinations in the world. They’ve picked out the most important aspects of each destination, namely where you should go first, what food you should eat and where you can get that one stunning and shareable photo for your Instagram or Facebook page.

If you go to Berlin, for example, a whistlestop tour using these posters would take you to the aptly-named Panoramapunkt for a panoramic view of the TV Tower, followed by a trip to the past at the historic Brandenburg Gate. For food options, currywurst is a spicy taste of Berlin life and culture, while you can finish your stay with an energetic and symbolic bike ride down the Mauerweg, which follows the route of the old Berlin Wall.

Swapping Germany for South Africa, Cape Town has plenty to offer, even in the snapshot form of a minimalist visit. Speaking of snapshots, Bloubergstrand is the place to go to get that iconic photo of Table Mountain while you’ll also want to keep your camera to hand when you’re at Boulders Beach so you can get a shot of the penguins. Yes, there really are penguins there. The Neighbourgoods Market in Woodstock is a good place to get souvenirs, while the recommended dish of the trip is potjiekos, a traditional meat stew.

As you’ll have seen from these two examples, there’s so much you can fit into even a minimalist travel poster if the destination is as exciting as Berlin or Cape Town. Others getting the minimalist treatment include Havana, London, Paris and even the Serengeti and Siam Reap, the Cambodian home of 800-year-old temple Angkor Wat. You can probably guess what the iconic photo from that trip would be.

So check out all 14 of these minimalist travel posters from Expedia and see which of the legendary destinations captures your imagination. Given that you can take in all the sights in just one day, you could even do a tour…

DJ Snake also scored his first No. 1 record last year with “Let Me Love You,” featuring Justin Bieber, which has been certified 4x-platinum.
