Global Adventures

We've expanded globally! Global Adventures are all-inclusive week-long running adventures in the most incredible locations all around the globe.

An important update regarding Covid-19

With things continuing to change daily, we are taking each Global Adventures trip on a case by case basis until the outbreak is resolved. Aside from the Iceland events, all other events have not been cancelled. However, we have landed on a schedule for making a final decision one way or the other.

We figure most people have a 45 day window to receive full or partial refunds on lodging and other travel expenses. Because of this, we will make our official decision to hold or cancel each race on the corresponding dates below, roughly 35 days before the event. All registered runners will receive communications outlining their options at that time. Until then, assume the race is on unless you’ve heard differently from us.

*These are the dates by which we will decide if the race will have to be cancelled:

What does this mean for the remainder of the 2021 race season?
We will be opening registration for our 2021 race season just as we do every year. While we are doing our part to follow health and safety recommendations and contain the spread of COVID-19, our plan is still to bet against the apocalypse. 🙂We expect to still be here in 2021. We plan to make some adjustments in the short term, but are looking forward to a return to normalcy as soon as possible. We have extended some of our price jumps, and will continue to adjust those and communicate to you as needed.

If you have questions you can also reach out to the event director, We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls and emails, but are working our hardest to get back to you in a timely manner. We promise we will respond, please be patient. It may take 2 or 3 days for us to respond.

Thank you for being a part of our community. We will see you out there!

Why travel with Vacation Races Global Adventures?

Sample Itinerary
Here's what a typical day would look like (from the Banff 2019 adventure): 

After waking up and eating breakfast, we’ll head out for our trail run - a 5.4 mile trail run to Bow Falls. After the run we’ll hang out at Bow Lake as we eat a catered lunch, before continuing on to visit the Athabasca Glacier in the afternoon. Experience a glacier up close like you never have before! After the glacier experience, we’ll finish the day by driving up to Jasper, checking into the hotel and eating a delicious dinner.
