    Get a change of pace with Down Under running tours

    TIRED of running along the same old routes in tiny Singapore?

    Now you can challenge yourself and enjoy a change of scenery with marathons in Australia.

    With Air Sino-Euro Associates Travel, you can join a tour group which takes care of transport and lodging, leaving you to focus on your preparations for the run.

    For runners who fancy visiting Australia's Gold Coast, check out the Gold Coast Airport Marathon tour, which lasts five days and three nights. You can spend the day before the July 6 marathon having fun jetboating or visiting Dreamworld, Movie World and Sea World - at your own expense.

    Another option is the Sydney Running Festival tour, which also lasts five days and three nights. Before the run on Sept 21, you can spend the free day exploring attractions like the Blue Mountains, Jervis Bay, Port Stephens or Hunter Valley, again at your own expense.

    Save $200 when you are one of the first 20 to book either tour package. Prices start from $1,288 for the Gold Coast tour and $1,388 for the Sydney tour.

    The tour package does not include the registration fees for the marathons. Different rates apply for the full marathon, half marathon, 10km run and 5.7km challenge. Early-bird rates are available.
