Established over 30 years ago, Sports Tours International is one of the UK’s largest specialist sports travel companies, taking thousands of participants and spectators to sports events around the world, including the ING New York City Marathon, l’Etape du Tour and the Tour de France.

Triathletes in the UK and Ireland will be offered travel and accommodation packages to the London event which takes place in Hyde Park on July 24 and 25th and which will enjoy live TV coverage as the world’s best battle for titles alongside members of the public who will seek to achieve their best in the unique setting of the 2012 Olympic venue.

“The signing of Sports Tours International offers us a proven partner in an important sector.  We need to know that all the excitement of competing in one of the world’s best events is backed by sound travel and accommodation logistics”, said James Robinson Commercial Director of Upsolut Sports UK Ltd today.

London will offer us an ideal platform to launch our association and our international travel services to competitors and spectators alike. Triathlon, cycling and running are at the very heart of what we are about and we look forward to taking care of the travel needs of competitors at every level.
