Boston, MA (October 18, 2019) – Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) is the exclusive tour operator for the Bermuda Triangle Challenge (BTC), which will take place during the Martin Luther King Holiday Weekend (January 16-20). A VIP Package is available offering features that makes a runner’s race weekend extra special such as accommodations at the deluxe Hamilton Princess & Beach Club – the official race headquarters.

She will be the pre-marathon dinner speaker for Marathon Tours & Travel, as well as other runners and companions participating in the special event.
MTT’s Founder and CEO, Thom Gilligan, conceived of the three-day BTC idea more 10 years ago. Since then, runners have flocked to this island paradise to enjoy the warm Bermudian hospitality.
“It’s ideal running weather and the island presents the perfect opportunity for New Englanders (and others coming from cold winter temperatures) to escape to this magical place, “stated Gilligan who will personally host the 2020 trip for his clients.
The BTC is a three-day event, which includes the Bank of Butterfield Front Street Mile on Friday evening (January 17), the BF&M 10K on Saturday morning (January 18), and the Half-Marathon and Marathon on Sunday morning (January 19). Those that compete in the Mile, 10K and Half-Marathon or Marathon will complete the BTC and receive the honor of an additional medal!
About Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT)
Founded in 1979, Marathon Tours & Travel (MTT) was the first global company to specialize in travel services specifically for runners. Located in Boston, the home of the world’s oldest marathon, MTT is the official North American travel agency for many of the world’s most popular running events including the BAA Boston Marathon, Virgin London Marathon and many others.
In 1995 MTT created the Antarctica Marathon & Half-Marathon, which generated a new genre of adventure runs.

Pursuantly, the Seven Continents Club was formed to recognize these runners and to offer special VIP services to international globetrotting distance runners.
