Run the World Adventures, a collaborative effort between six boutique companies that offer trail-running vacations in some of the world’s best destinations, launched in summer of 2014.
Run the World Adventures was created by a passionate group of runners who understand what makes a running vacation fun and carefree, with just the right amount of adventure.
“We came together because we are runners who share a common view that traveling on foot is the most natural way for humans to explore this earth and its diverse culture and landscapes,” says consortium co-founder Pablo Rodriguez. “These trips are adventures, but also your vacation, so we take care of the logistics and planning for you and you just get to run and enjoy it. ”
Just like any other vacation, select the destination that calls to you, the activities that thrill you and the duration that will challenge and exhilarate you.
The trips take you to places that aren’t in the guidebooks and that you can only reach by foot. Since the trips are not competitive, there’s no pressure to run fast or rush through the terrain or meet a certain time cutoff. All the guides are highly experienced and make your comfort and safety their number one priority.
Run the World Adventures is committed to making your travel experience as easy and carefree as possible.
Your only job is to show up ready to run!
Each vacation, which you can book privately or join a small group, showcases a region’s most beautiful and unique aspects. Some trips may be customized to match your ability level or ideal balance between time spent running versus exploring the destinations and culture along the way.
