Adventure Travel

Do you love running, hiking and adventure travel? We can help you combine those passions for a truly unforgettable life experience. Joe Gigas, the former New Jersey Marathon and current Beauty and the Beach Run™ Race Director and an experienced and certified endurance running coach and race director, is planning his world-wide running calendar for 2016 and has already announced his intention to race in Bermuda in mid-January.

The combination of an experienced race insider and certified endurance running coach provides a terrific opportunity for athletes looking for a unique experience to join Joe as he runs the world several times throughout the year! Joe’s connections, training and racing knowledge and passion to give back to this special sport is always available to our travelling companions. You pay the tour operator for the cost of the travel and tour and that’s it. Nothing extra!

We coordinate running and hiking trips around the world which are of special interest because of the: venue, region of the world, weather and natural beauty. We request customer wish list input each year and combine it with our wish list to arrive at 2-4 running/hiking adventures and then put the details together for those chosen adventures. While we hope that we never need it, we have First Aid, CPR and Wilderness First Aid Certificates and carry adventure medical kits on all hikes and trail runs.

In the past we have run/hiked in: Bermuda (marathon, half marathon 10K and 1M), the Bordeaux region of France (Marathon du Medoc), the Costa Brava region of northeastern Spain (7 day trail run), National Parks in the southwestern USA (Utah and Arizona), and routes in the Alps of eastern France and western Switzerland.

For most of our trips we arrange all of the major trip details such as lodging, transportation and dates and then work with travel experts and tour operators to put it all together for our groups. You are free to choose our travel experts for air transportation and occasionally pre-event lodging or use your own travel resources, however you must book with the chosen tour operator for the land portion of the run(s) or hike(s) and the associated lodging and ground transportation – except for our trip to Sedona, Arizona, in the USA. For our Sedona trips, which are relaxed trail runs and/or day hikes, we will recommend several local lodging options that fit your interests and budget, as well as local transportation options, if you wish, or you may use your own travel planning resources and we’ll plan daily runs and/or hikes to suit your interests and abilities.
