Malena, Kiawah 2019

I have been completely and utterly spoiled by Destination Marathons. I was so well taken care of at Kiawah, I don't know how I'll ever do another major race without them.

Raymond, Kiawah 2019

I went with my wife and kids on my first Destination Marathon trip in December. We could not have been any happier with the entire DM experience. All of the details were thought of and taken care of seamlessly and I really felt able to focus on my race.

Nicolena, Kiawah 2019

Destination Marathons is amazing <3 they make all your marathon logistic issues disappear and the pre and post race gatherings are so wonderful for any race not in your hometown, this is the way to go!


Tatiana, Atlanta 2020

Cannot wait to use these folks again! They thought of everything for the weekend of spectating the Olympic marathon trials + racing the next day. The little extras and welcoming personalities were the icing on top of not having to worry about logistics at ALL.

Jay, Wrightsville 2019

Great times! Very well organized, and I got to make many new friends along the way. Mark and his team go above and beyond to provide all that is needed for an awesome running vacation.

Robert, Boston 2019

Last year I froze while sitting in Athletes Village in the rain for over two hours. This year I stayed warm and dry thanks to Destination Marathons. My bags were waiting for me for easy pick up after the race.
