25 year London Marathon veteran Matt Graham has seen it all. The excitement that securing a place at the world's top running event means; and the trepidation that follows at the thought of hotel bookings, transfer arrangements and all the other queries around getting to the start line ready to do your best.
Matt (pictured with wife Shirley) told runABC: "Every year, I hear the same questions. Where will I stay? How will I get to the Expo? What about dinner the night before? Pre-race breakfast? Getting to the start? What happens post-race? What about my family – where can they get a good view of the action?"
Over a period of 25 years, the team at Matt Graham Travel has found the perfect answers to the big London Marathon questions. He books the best value hotels, works with a tried and trusted team of ‘stewards’, and has created the perfect programme for transfers to and from Expo, hotel, start and finish.
Matt and his team pay real attention to detail – the ideal Saturday evening carb-loading dinner, the perfectly timed pre-race breakfast, the post-race buffet. Transfer logistics are carried out with precision (and smiles) so from the moment you are greeted by your steward at Euston (or one of the other mainline stations), your only worry is pacing yourself to a decent time at the big event.
Matt added: "I've just taken a booking from Beth who has signed up with me again, fifth year in a row. Beth is a member of the 100 Marathon Club and knows a thing or two about getting your marathon arrangements right. Beth is just one of the runners who come back year after year to enjoy the stress-free service that Matt Graham Travel provides."
