We are Finish Line Travel – we bring small groups of runners from the U.S. to Europe to participate in a running event (10k to a Marathon) and then we tour around the city or country.
The race is the “anchor” of the tour, but the touring is almost as important. We use private, local guides to get beyond the city’s main tourist sights (and tourist traps) and find the hidden gems (there’s only 8 – 16 of us, so we can get where the big tours can’t!) We slow down and get a feel for what each European city is like for the locals.
We get to enjoy “curated experiences” along the way. This is something that the vast majority of tourists never get to see! These experiences are usually a culinary delight which we use to reward ourselves for the running! Some examples are:
Our motto is “Race Fast. Travel Slow.” Slow Travel is immersing yourself in a local culture rather than rushing from one tourist attraction to another. And, as runners, we all want to Race Fast! Read more about our travel philosophy here.
