Running abroad

Whether you'd like to take on a city marathon in New York or go on a running holiday in the French Alps, here are the various options for international running trips:

Self-organised trips
Organising your own trip is quite straightforward and, especially in Europe, can be very cheap. You can use our Events section to find a suitable overseas event - just click on the 'Events by region' option to see what's currently available.

Organised trips
If you want someone to do the organising for you, there are many well-established companies specialising in this area - 'Trips' is the area of the site to head to.

Charity runs
Or you could take part in an overseas charity race by going to our Challenges area. Either use the 'Select by region' option or choose your favourite charity to see if they are involved in any international runs.
