Testimonials

Thanks for all of the hard work that you put into the inaugural Australian Outback Marathon event, you were exquisite hosts and we look forward to travelling with Travelling Fit in the years to come at a future Marathon event. We thoroughly enjoyed itinerary 1, and it was the highlight of our trip to Australia. It was wonderful going on the majestic and awe-inspiring tours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. We also enjoyed making new friends, and meeting ...

William Tai – Canada

THANK YOU! I had an AMAZING experience. Everything was well organised, professionally set up and I had to do little, just organise flights, payment and turn up. Exceptional support from all involved, great comradarie, professional workers, friendly atmosphere, provided a variety of experiences, catered for a variety of people. THANK YOU!!!...

Karen Eakin – NSW

Words are really not adequate to express how much we loved the Outback marathon - not just the race (which has to have been one of the most glorious races on the planet, surely), but the whole few days. What an incredible and wonderful group of people, and so diverse, but all having one main thing in common. Our deepest gratitude to you all, for your outstanding organisation, support whilst we were there, and overall excellent friendship. We will...

Michelle Johnston and Richard Lewis – WA

Just wanted to drop you a line to say what an experience we had over the past 4 days. After 8 months of training my big day had arrived. Not knowing how these events run l was quite nervous leading up the run, but as soon as l hopped of the bus in the morning with the music blaring my body relaxed and before I knew it l was off running my first half marathon. I guess what l am trying to say is that this is one of the best experiences we have had ...

Jarrod Dempster and Amy Shakespeare – VIC

I am not an experienced traveller and so was a little nervous about finding my connecting flights, but all went well. When I left on Thursday morning Wellington was 12 degrees and raining. When I arrived at Uluru it was sunny and warm (probably in mid-twenties). My arrival flight was full of runners and we were picked up and transferred to the Desert Gardens. I checked into the Desert Gardens, picked my race pack, went for the planned ...

Charlotte Spurway – New Zealand

Can I take the opportunity to thank you all at travelling fit for a wonderful experience last week in the outback event. We had a great time and really appreciated all your care. A few good memories that will be high on the recall list for ever. Well done. ...

Ali Woodward – VIC

Let me once again congratulate you on the wonderful Marathon we all experienced. Regarding the testimonial, let me say that " I always took pride in participating in Exotic Marathons in Exotic Locations like the Medoc, Safaricom in Kenya and Reykjavik. After participating in the Australian Outback Marathon, my definition of EXOTIC had changed. There can be nothing more Exotic than this. My wife and I enjoyed this so much and rate this as the best...

Krishna Prasad – India

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and your team for organising such a fantastic experience!! There was obviously  a lot of hard work behind the scenes but it was a seamless event and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I am going to buy a new pair of running shoes today as I had to bin them the evening of the marathon  but I feel I left them at their spiritual home- they had done their job with little left to give! It was...

Doreen Macgillivray – NSW

Cassie and I wish to sincerely thank you all for all the hardwork you all did to provide us with an incredible experience and as a mother and daughter will never forget. We still have smiles on our faces when we talk about our amazing 4 days, the people we meet, the things we did. It was amazing to be a part of such a visionary event, we will be forever grateful for your efforts.The natural beauty, vastness of what we ran in served as a reminder ...

Kate Brereton – VIC

Thank you for a life changing experience...

Nicola Delve – NSW

My running buddies and I flew across Australia from SA, NSW and TAS to meet at Uluru and run in the first Outback Half Marathon. The event was really well organised and had a fantastic feel. The didgeridoo starting gun, ochre red sand, and awesome views of the Olgas and Uluru made it a truly unique experience. If you like your runs to be memorable, this event is for you! Thanks Travelling Fit for enabling another of my running dreams to come ...

Catherine Ford – VIC

I was overwhelmed with how well the event was organised, and how delightful the race itself was - beautiful off-road course (I hate racing on bitumen), perfect weather, nice people to chat to before and after, helpful and friendly Travelling Fit staff, good food. It was definitely one of my most memorable and enjoyable race experiences....

Andina Faragher – ACT

Hi Tina, it was great to catch up with you, Michael & Mari-Mar. Thanks for a great experience and a holiday to remember; Ursula and I really enjoyed the whole package, the Uluru sunrise tour, evening BBQ at Sails, The Pasta Party, The Race, the Outback Pioneer unofficial post race party, and not forgetting the Sounds of Silence extravaganza, a wonderful finale to a great event, thanks to all....

Joe & Ursula Clark-Murphy – WA

What an amazing experience to run my first 1/2 Marathon at the inaugural Australian Outback Marathon in spectacular Uluru. On a perfect morning for running, I set off with some nervousness wondering what lay ahead of my first 1/2 Marathon. I would have to say I loved every minute of the experience, except perhaps the headwind we encountered at about the 17-18km mark!! The red earth was an amazing sight, along with the camels we came across at the...

Sandy Broadhead – VIC

Your Outback was great fun, and the organisation could not have been faulted..well done, and I hope it augers well for the future of the event. I enjoyed the accommodation, and I am glad I arrived early, as I appreciated more of Uluru and I would encourage more early arrivals next year! Take a good break and I hope it was financially viable, it must have been like organising an army over a year or two!...

Anne I’Ons – ACT

As we return to ‘normal’ life today it would be remise of me not to take some time to send a quick note regarding our experience over the last five days. I made the decision to sign up for Australian Outback Marathon last August and after some procrastination and in decision, I was lucky to have a friend decide to come along on the journey who was super organised and took hold of the booking process. While I had imagined it would be an ...

Rebecca Purcell – NSW

I so thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and the 11km experience. It was probably the best holiday I've ever had, comparing it to the local and overseas holidays I've had. The hosts were fantastic, the running comrades were so amiable and interesting from so many walks of life and the food was glorious. It was also good to relax in a 5 star hotel. The Itinerary 1 package was extremely well put together and I was so glad I got to enjoy as much of Ayers...

Margaret Dos Santos – NSW

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a fabulous weekend. This certainly was a unforgettable experiences. From hotel staff, fellow runners to you guys everyone was so friendly and helpful. Due to a knee injury (I had no problems with my knee in training leading up to marathon??) I had to walk the last 15km – fellow runners were encouraging and one person even stopped and walked a km with me! and one of you guys slowed down in the car for some ...

Tanja Windegger – QLD

It was not just a run it was an experience. It was very well organised. The excursions were awesome. I walked round Ayers Rock and did a camel ride. I learned such a lot about the area and there were so many free activities at the resort. The final dinner outside in the middle of nowhere was just outstanding. ...

Linda Te Au – New Zealand

I have completed 7 half marathons, all in many different locations including overseas - this was by far the best. The highlight of my running "career"!...

Josie Hunting – NSW

We just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful experience in Ayers Rock! We were both 'virgins' to this wonderful world of running but will definitely be back for more. Rob does a lot of running but I personally, hated it - until now. The location and course was fantastic. I didn't realize how nice it was to run on our very own red dirt! The rain in the days leading up to the event proved a god send. Did I mention ...

Kelly Russell – WA

Thanks for the opportunity to have run in such a spectacular setting. Sometimes I think we are oblivious to the beautiful surrounds that we have to run in and I think this was a good wakeup call. It was also great to mix with some very special people. People that I can admire and aspire to be....

Wendy Stibbe – ACT

It was so nice to meet you, Mari-Mar, Michael and the rest of the Travelling Fit team at Ayers Rock and we just want to thank you once again for such a wonderful trip. Running the Australian Outback Marathon was so very special and it truly was an amazing experience and location that neither of us will ever forget. Who could forget all that red earth, sand and of course those sand dunes. Brent and I had such a fabulous time away made even ...

Joanne and Brent Pitts – NSW

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the team for organising a fantastic event. I have run 15 marathons around the world and the Australian Outback Marathon stands out as the most memorable. I hope the event goes from strength to strength and will be encouraging my friends to enter in the future. Thanks!...

Nicholas Turner – NSW

After the Uluru marathon I flew out to Borneo and France for a few weeks and have only just returned. Anyway, now that the red dust has settled, I just wanted to let you know how fantastic the Outback Marathon event was and that it blew my expectations out of the water! Every detail was covered professionally and impeccably. Being my first marathon, it was the most spectacular backdrop and perfect experience. The atmosphere was friendly and ...

Megan Davidson – QLD

What a weekend you guys gave us last weekend! An amazing experience that I will never forget! Thank you to you and all your colleagues at Travelling Fit for putting on such an amazing Outback Marathon Weekend. The organization and seamless flow of the weekend coordinating hundreds of people to so many events was simply amazing and you guys gave us a weekend to remember forever!...

Kate Ridge – NSW

Thank you for a wonderful experience! This was my first half marathon & I enjoyed the event so much it has inspired me to sign up for another half marathon in October this year - even though I've never really been a long distance runner....

Neroli Brook – Canada

My sister, Lindsay Holland, and I would like to thank you both for the amazing event that you organised in the Outback. We were also both so pleased that we changed back to the full marathon and, although we were Walkers, we did not come last! The organisation was superb. The events that you arranged, especially the Celebration Dinner, were fantastic. The atmosphere of the Marathon, with such friendly volunteers manning the aid stations, ...

Sue Parsley & Lindsay Holland – South Africa

Just a quick note of my appreciation for all your help and assistance with coordinating my booking for this year’s AOM. It was great to meet you finally and put a face to the name after months of emailing. I think you and the entire team at Travelling Fit did an awesome job in coordinating and keeping happy some 500 odd runners and supporters, which I know is no easy feat! I hope you got some downtime when you returned on Monday but I would ...

Jill Saker – NSW

We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the staff at Travelling Fit for organising such a memorable Australian Outback Marathon holiday.  Bob and I have done quite a bit of travelling overseas but nothing compares to this holiday in our own backyard. It was so professionally run right down to the finer details and the service you all provide well you just couldn’t fault it. The accommodation and staff at the Ayres Rock Resort ...

Darren Free & Robert Hayden

The weekend was probably the best weekend I’ve had in Australia since I arrived here almost 5 years ago. From the moment that I landed to being dropped off at the airport, I wanted for nothing and everything had been thought of by you guys. The tours that I went on were incredible and so well organised. The hotel was spot on, with a really relaxed atmosphere and decent breakfast. The marathon itself was easily my favourite one that I ...

Colin Dunne – NSW

Thank you for all of the great organisation it was really appreciated, all of the staff were so friendly and obliging. I had a fabulous trip....

Tracey Moore – QLD

It was well worth the money. The experience you just cannot describe. I spent time with the winner of the marathon as well as the lady who chose to enjoy the scenery the longest & although on completely different ends of the spectrum I gained so much from my time with them & was inspired listening to their own journey of getting here....

Vicki Tillott – NSW

Thanks for making my first marathon experience so much fun, I would recommend this event to anyone looking for a personal achievement to remember! The landscape of Uluru is an incredible backdrop, and the Travelling Fit team of organisers and volunteers were professional and supportive every step of the way. Thanks Guys!...

Tanya White – NSW

Hi team, I've just returned home from the Australian Outback Marathon experience & just wanted to say thankyou to everyone involved in putting on the event. I traveled to Uluru with two friends to participate in the event & we were all just so impressed at how well run it was. Our 5 night itinerary was great value for money, the tours brilliantly run, the food was exceptional & the accomodation options were terrific. I really can't ...

Nicole Weber – NSW

I wanted to write to you to say a massive thank you for an amazing experience in Uluru over the weekend. The Outback marathon was unreal!!! I had such a great time.

A big shout out to the photographers, they were so friendly and it was great having their smiling faces out on the ...

Sarah Beck – WA

My girlfriend and I recently completed the world famous Australian Outback Marathon. Although it has been a couple of weeks since the run, we just wanted to say congratulations and thank you once again for organising such a wonderful event! We both had an unforgettable time in the Northern Territory and can't wait for the next run. The organisation and service provided by Travelling Fit was world class. All of the Travelling Fit staff and ...

Ross Montague and Ally Trefoni – NSW

Well, my legs mightn't still be aching, but I am certainly still smiling. A huge thanks to you Tina, Mari-Mar, Michael and to everyone else who contributed to last weekend. The Australian Outback Marathon experience was every bit and more that I hoped it would be. I would certainly recommend it to any prospective runners, marathon first-timers or 7 Continent veterans, and I hope to be back myself next year....

Rob Woolley (winner, 2010 Australian Outback Marathon) – NSW

The Australian Outback Marathon event is the most single most fantastic event that we have been a part of. The professionalism and fantastic service we received during our stay in Uluru left us wanting for nothing. The team are personable, funny, witty, professional, friendly people that were a pleasure to be around. Once again thank you for everything and for introducing us to a whole lot of other bunch of great people...

Matthew Brierley – WA

To the whole crew at Travelling Fit.... Thank you for the most awesome trip. It was awe-inspiring, emotional, fun, full on and just genuinely fantastic! The family feel to such a world-class event is brilliant! I've never been to another event where newly made friends see you off at the end of your journey!!! Thank you all again for the organisation and planning. Please put me down for the AOM again, I'll be coming back to do the 6! ...

Jude Planitz – QLD

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your efforts in staging the inaugural Australian Outback Marathon. I (Diana) have a goal to do a marathon in every state/territory in Australia, so when I saw this event advertised, it was not to be missed – and we quickly lined up to participate. We were both highly impressed with how well everything was organised for the event & associated activities – we had an incredible time & ...

Diana & Hayden Marshall – ACT

I wanted to email and say thank-you for one of the best (in fact maybe it is the best) races I have ever run. It was an exceptional experience and the organisation by Travelling Fit was superb. You guys really did think of EVERYTHING and I have never run a race where so much was included from the meal the night before to a really good running t-shirt (usually I wear the t-shirt as pjs!) to all the food at the event and the wonderful support ...

Teri Lichtenstein – VIC

Thank you for a fantastic experience in the desert. The event was incredibly well organised and the atmosphere was excellent. It was a unique, memorable experience that I was delighted to have been able to participate in....

Shaye Hunter – Russian Federation

Just arrived back yesterday from the Outback Marathon and I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all at Travelling Fit for such a well organized and wonderful event. From the first enquiry through to the actual event it has been a pleasure to associate with all concerned. Apart from the actual marathon the highlight would have to be the Sounds of Silence Dinner Celebration Dinner - a beautiful night....

Jackie Ginefra – VIC

Just a total thank you. When I finished that race in 5.12, you made me feel like I had won it!!...

Sally Duncan – NSW

I just finished my 13 hour flight back to the US (ugh!) and so I wanted to write you a quick note to tell you that I thought the marathon was a great experience and the whole team did a fantastic job! Please pass my kudos on to your colleagues. I especially appreciated your attentiveness to our arrangements and it was wonderful to finally meet you in person. I wish I wouldn't have slept so much in the early evening and had more energy to dance ...
