Penthouse Travel Sporting Tours


Location: South Africa

Penthouse Travel Sporting tours is the most prominent South African marathon tours company, specializing in running travel packages to both local marathon events and as an official tour operator to the world’s most well-known and sort after-international events.

Our team comes with a wealth of experience as we have been looking after INTERNATIONAL and LOCAL Comrades runners and their supporters since 1984. We are passionate about Comrades and offer a stress-free superior package that includes tour guides, and accommodation close to the race start/finish, which eliminates the need for a long coach journey on race day. Something you most definitely do not need prior to or after running for up to 12 hours!

Our travel manager is a runner herself, has traveled to many marathons and ultra-marathon events, and has participated in international events with our clients. She, therefore, understands how much time and passion goes into your training.

For peace of mind, travel with an established, secure, and professional trusted company which is registered with both ASATA and IATA.
