Running as part of a vacation has seen strong growth in recent years. Individuals wanting to complete marathons in different cities, states, or countries can do so with the numerous marathons offered in the United States and abroad. The Boston, New York and Chicago marathons are three of the largest in the country. Not suprisingly, Honolulu is a top marathon destination of choice as well, due to Hawaii's travel appeal. Companies such as Marathon Tours and Travel [1] operates tours that take traveling marathoners around the globe.

Marathons are not the only possibility for running on a vacation. Endurance races are also available, and running shorter distances are also available. Run the World LLC [2] operates interesting culture/running tours to international destinations, and allows a traveler to run, but still soak in a large part of culture, which is often missed on a marathon trip.
