International Marathon Tours

Running Marathons Internationally

Sophros Fitness likes to dream big. I believe that whatever you put your mind to, you can achieve. Running a marathon in itself is a challenging and rewarding goal, and I can help you reach that goal.

But I also know the power of running goes beyond just crossing a finish line. How exciting, then, to let your own personal marathon race be part of the human race.

marathon trainingMarathon running transcends the usual barriers of language, customs, and geography. When we lace up our shoes and pin our race numbers on our shirts, we are all in it together, all striving for the same goal of being the best we can be. Running a marathon in a foreign country gives you a unique perspective on yourself, your place in the world, and the common goals that join us together. Yes, crossing the finish line at a marathon is always an accomplishment, but it can be an even greater thrill to feel yourself part of a worldwide movement.
