You might not be a professional marathon runner, but the recent gigantic running hype in Hong Kong has definitely drawn your attention! Missed the chance of being part of this sports mega event in town? Be it a witness or runner, why don’t you consider the marathons in our neighbour countries and enjoy a short and sweet “runcation” holiday?, the global leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, has selected three most worth participating marathons around Asia. Now, you have more reasons to keep the pace fast. Get set, go!

Marathon with the Best Service, Tokyo – 25 February, 2018

Marathons are usually long and exhausting. However, marathon in Tokyo, held in February, might not be the case. The organizer knows how to make everyone feel like a champion. There’re signs and volunteers everywhere to cheer you up, so runners will never feel left out even in the middle of the race. After the long run, you can enjoy the free foot bathing and acupuncture if needed. To enjoy the incredible services, what you need is a lot of luck – less than 12% people will be selected to participate the race!

Where to stay? Superb is the name of the service at Oakwood Premier Tokyo . With an extraordinary high score (9.1), this luxury serviced apartment with hotel-like services, is designed to offer travellers a getaway in the centre of Tokyo – with great staff and service that will never let you down.

Night Marathon, Singapore – 19 May, 2018

Afraid of the bright and shining sun during the run? The night marathon in Singapore held in May, one of Asia’s largest night runs, makes you no excuse. Far more than self-achievement, runners are able to enjoy the scenic landmarks of Singapore, such as Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by The Bay and etc.

Where to stay? There’s no better way to rest in a stylish and cosy apartment. Featuring contemporary-style furnishing and brightly-colored decor, apartments at Citadines Mount Sophia Singapore have a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious sitting area – you’ll feel like home even when attending a foreign race.

Running on the Great Wall, China – 19 May 2018

Since 1999, the one-of-a-kind marathon gives run lovers an opportunity to run into history! Before enjoying the iconic landscape from the monuments in history, athletes first need to pass over 5,164 steps and cross into the stunning Tianjin Province – that’s why it has been dubbed as one of the most challenging marathons in the world. Memorable experience deserves some extra efforts!

Where to stay? Yin Courtyard is set in an old Chinese Siheyuan with simple home-like renovation. This classic accommodation was an ordinary home of old Beijingese and was refurbished and opened in 2017. The wooden design and the big patio were well maintained. What is better than living in it to experience the history?
