Destination Sport Experiences add one of the Abbott World Marathon Majors to their already impressive marathon portfolio.
This new partnership offers runners guaranteed entry into the sell-out Marathon Major as part of a travel package including hotel stay and team activities. Berlin Marathon is one of the most popular in the world and as one of six Abbott World Marathon Majors, entry is usually allocated via a lottery, similar to the infamous London Marathon ballot. The lottery for the 2022 Berlin Marathon - taking place on September 25 - is already closed, but with Destination Sport Experiences runners can still guarantee entry for this year’s race.
What’s more, booking a package with Destination Sport Experiences means the hassle of finding suitable accommodation and organising an itinerary is already taken care of. The Destination Sport Experiences package includes a city centre Berlin hotel stay with breakfast for 3 or 4 nights, a detailed travel itinerary, an escorted trip to the race expo, a guided warm up run and a celebratory get together on Sunday night after the Marathon.
Alex de Waard, Director of Product and Operations, said: “We’re so excited to have our first World Marathon Major added to our marathon portfolio. This is a notoriously difficult event to get into, so it’s a real treat to be able to offer athletes guaranteed entry into the race as well as social activities to create an unforgettable experience from start to finish.”
Destination Sport Experiences was founded in 2021, and the team lead bespoke travel packages for some of the biggest and best sporting events in the world. They encourage athletes to ‘Do Something Extraordinary’ and take the stress out of organising travel and accommodation for worldwide cycling, running and triathlon events.
