Sports Tours International Going for Gold

Salford 10KEvents organised by travel specialists, Sports Tours International, have been nominated in three categories in the annual Running Awards 2016. The company, which takes thousands of participants to some of the world’s biggest running events including the TCS New York City Marathon and the Tokyo Marathon, have been short-listed for two of their UK events - the Decathlon City of Salford 10K and the Tour of Tameside.

This year saw the return of the Tour of Tameside after an absence of more than a decade. Hundreds took part in the three day event, running the distance of a marathon over the weekend. The Decathlon City of Salford 10K was held earlier this month, welcoming a record number of runners.
Chris Bird, chief executive of Sports Tours International commented: “Running is a big part of what we do and we’ve been involved in some fantastic events this year so we would like to invite our loyal customers and thousands of participants who have raced with us to show their support and help us celebrate these events. It only takes a few seconds to register to vote.”
