Lindsey Hurley - Saint Clair Half Marathon Tour
What a fantastic weekend away. Having just returned from another GetRunning tour, feeling triumphant (and a little hung over), I am reflecting on all that I have gained on these tours, a few more race finishes, a relaxing vacation, and not least, amazing friendships. GetRunning seems to attract a great group of runners on every tour, and Saint Clair was no exception.

John Strowger - GetRunning Tours
I have really enjoyed all of the GR tours I have been on, sure, they give you a (mild) focus to your training, and take you to exotic places you might not otherwise go to (a classic case in point being Chicago for me, what a city, and what a marathon) and I suppose there is a run involved and everything, but the best bit is the people, and what (usually) comes next.

Heather Carter - Paris Marathon Tour 2013
Imagine turning around and having the majestic Arch de Triumphe behind you as you line up at the start of your next marathon. They say Paris is the city of love but if you love running then this is the place to be - on a GetRunning tour.

Karen - Saint Clair Half Marathon Tour 2013
Destination: Blenheim. Reason: Saint Clair Half Marathon. That is it, that is all there was right. Not quite. Yes, transport, accommodation, tour guides/hosts Gaz and Kerre and an entry into a stunning half marathon were all included but it didn't end there.

Raelene Grinter - Auckland Marathon 2013
So nice to meet you this weekend and many thanks for all your encouragement and support and making me feel welcome even though I'm an out of towner and hadn't been running with your crew. The GetRunning support was awesome from the people on the bus, to the special area with our own porta loos and the support stations, especially liked the oranges and the tent after with the most fantastic massage.

John Silk - Kerikeri Half Marathon Tour 2013
The Kerikeri Half Marathon is run through beautiful countryside over undulating roads with views over the Bay of Islands, enthusiastic local support and treats along the way, ending in the township with crowds of people out to enjoy the day. You can make it tough and go for a PB on this course or take it as easy as you like.

Liv MacPherson - Saint Clair Half Marathon Tour 2013
I came to GetRunning eight months after the birth of my third child. I have never been athletic, but I'd had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to enter a half marathon one day. The training seemed impossible to fit around a busy family life, but I was curious to see if having a running coach would give me the motivation I needed.

Libby Macgregor - Kerikeri Half Marathon Tour 2013
Being a novice runner and uneducated about words such as ‘undulating’ it was with a degree of trepidation that I approached the KeriKeri half marathon...

Al Macgregor - GetRunning Tours - International & National
I have been on many half Marathon and full Marathon GR tours, both international and local, and I can truly say they are very special events. They have made a big impact on my life and have become much looked forward to adventures that pull me out of the daily grind and treadmill of life. They are my escape and are good for my health (mostly).
