Run Tour & Run Tourism Development

Running is more than just a way for people to keep in shape. More and more, runners are choosing to use this passion as a way to explore the world.

The tour operators and destinations who are best able to capture this high-income, eco-conscious market will position themselves well for the future as travelers increasingly look for experiential, low-impact, sustainable tourism activities to pursue.

Why Develop Run Tourism?

Run tourism is a unique niche that allows countries to welcome in tourists that have a positive impact on the local economy while having a negligible impact on the environment. This combination of high-dollar tourist with the rise and importance of sustainable tourism and slow tourism makes runners an ideal niche to target for tour operators and regions going forward.

And Long Run Travel can help you develop this.
