The combination of travel and fitness is not new. From spa vacations to hiking, fitness-focused travelers have scoured the globe in search of the ultimate experience in exercise and adventure. Destination races are one more way for runners to see the world around them: on foot, as they traverse courses through city streets, alongside panoramic ocean views and often circumventing the world's most popular travel destinations.

The number of destination races seems to increase every year, with distance choices ranging from 5K runs to marathons. Although local races are convenient and comfortable for many runners, the lure of a destination race allows runners and their families to see the sites before or after an event. The combination of running and travel can be a great motivator for runners and a way to include the entire family as part of a travel experience that everyone can enjoy.

While the definition of "most scenic" is always in the eye of the beholder, here are five destination races around the world that provide memorable vistas and experiences that are impossible to replicate:

The Big Sur Marathon  Recommend more: All  wholesale shoes china  in wholesale shoes store.

Starting in Big Sur, Calif., and rolling along the Pacific Coast Highway to Carmel, the Big Sur Marathon is one of the most renowned destination races in the United States, often selling out in record time. Runners will experience mountain ranges and sweeping ocean views with every step. Running on a closed-off Pacific Coast Highway, 9,000 runners make their way along the challenging course that winds through redwoods and ranches and offers unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean. Runners that are interested in the destination but not the full marathon have six distance options to choose from, including a relay and 5K.

The Venice Marathon

In its 29th year, the Venice Marathon in Italy takes runners from the charming countryside near Padua along what is known as the Riviera del Brenta -- the beautiful riverside area where wealthy Venetians built vacation mansions in the 18th century. The last kilometers of the race are in historic Venice, where runners race alongside the Giudecca Canal to Punta della Dogana, before crossing Grand Canal on a 170-meter pontoon bridge toward Piazza San Marco. The Venice Marathon is held every fourth Sunday of October -- a perfect season in Venice.

The Marine Corps Marathon

The fourth largest U.S. marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., winds through the nation's capital, traversing historic monuments along the Potomac River. The Marine Corps Marathon is nicknamed "Marathon of the Monuments," and its 30,000 runners will experience the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, Arlington National Cemetery, the Pentagon, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Known for energetic crowd support and military involvement, this race is a favorite of local and traveling runners as a perfect fall marathon. The Marine Corps Marathon weekend also includes a 10K race and a kids run.

Great Wall Marathon

While the Great Wall Marathon may not be the ideal race for runners looking for a personal best times, the experience of running from Yin and Yang Square in the village of Huangyaguan to the Great Wall is the ultimate in unique destination races. With 5,164 stair steps along the course, runners should expect to elongate their race times in return for vistas of rural villages, rice paddies and of course, the historic Great Wall of China. The race also offers shorter half-marathon and a 5.5-mile fun, "non-competitive run along the wall." Registration for the race also includes a travel itinerary to explore Beijing.

RunDisney Series

Although the vistas may not be epic, competing in a runDisney race in Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., or Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., provides incredible access to two of the most magical places on earth. Runners dash across the start line wearing costumes and smiles that are unseen in many other running events. The popularity of the Walt Disney World Marathon, Disney Princess Half Marathon and Tinker Bell Half Marathon have runners planning bicoastal race experiences in the same year to earn the coveted "Coast to Coast Race Challenge" medal. In addition to the seven popular Disney races, the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon in Disneyland is now on the menu of choices.

 Leading cloud-based travel and expense management software provider Certify announces the results of its Business Travel Expense Trends report, conducted in February 2014. The survey, which polled hundreds of finance executives and business travelers at companies of all sizes in North America, indicates that business travel is on the rise. A majority of respondents across all company sizes (58%) spent more on travel in 2013 compared with 2012. In 2014, nearly half (49%) of all respondents say they will spend slightly more on T&E, while 30% say they will spend the same.

"If business travel is a barometer of the economy, these results are positive, showing that companies are loosening the reins on operational expenses," says Robert Neveu, CEO of Certify. "Most surprising was the level of investment at SMB companies, in which one third of small companies are spending more than $50,000 annually on T&E, while 41% of midsize companies are spending $500,000 and up. Despite the advent of widespread availability of remote collaboration and conferencing tools, companies still value face time when it comes to doing business."Recommend more:  climbing shoes  at 90shoes.com

Spain is one of the most highly regarded travel destinations in the world, rivaling its European counterparts with its rich historical offerings and a fresh modern flair. From passionate flamenco performances to sweet sangria cocktails to some of the most awe-inspiring art and architecture in the world, Spain is a melting pot of beauty, history, culture, and romance. It’s the ideal European destination for travelers of all ages and interests. Now, with Friendly Planet Travel’s newest Spain packages, travelers can experience the country’s most popular sights and sounds for as little as $1,499, including airfare.

“With world-class cities like Madrid and Barcelona, year after year, Spain continues to be one of the most popular European destinations we offer,” says Friendly Planet Travel President Peggy Goldman. “Given its popularity among American travelers and the great diversity the country has to offer visitors, we’ve developed these Spain itineraries so that travelers can have a more complete experience through fun and affordable group travel.”

The new eight-day Discover Spain tour starts with a city-wide tour of Madrid, where travelers drive through the main avenues of Alcala Street and Puerta del Sol, a lively hub of street life, and then pass by Plaza de España, Parliament, and Teatro Real, the city’s main opera house that was remodeled to replicate how the Queen of Spain once enjoyed music. Travelers then visit the Palacio Real, the Royal Palace of Madrid, which is still used by the King of Spain for state ceremonial activities.

After Madrid, it’s off to Córdoba, the literary land of Don Quixote, where travelers explore a 10th century mosque now transformed into a Catholic cathedral, then stroll the streets of the old Jewish quarter. The tour continues in Seville, the capital of Andalucia and the cultural and financial center of southern Spain. The tour includes a visit to the world’s largest Gothic cathedral, the Giralda Cathedra, where travelers can snap photos of the casket believed to hold the remains of Christopher Columbus. The next stop is Granada, home to the awe-inspiring architectural palace and fortress complex of the Alhambra. This old Moorish fort lures in visitors with its massive and imposing exterior and it’s lavishly decorated interiors, resplendent with mosaic tiles, arches, and reflecting pools. Last stop on the tour is the city of Toledo, the forgotten capital of Spain and a center of Spain’s growing cultural splendor. Then head back to Madrid for one final night.

Another new travel offering, fashioned for the more independent vacationer, is Friendly Planet’s six-day Breathtaking Barcelona tour. This tour is designed for travelers who seek the cost-effective and hassle-free benefits of prearranged flights, transfers, and hotel accommodations, but desire maximum schedule flexibility and boundless leisure time for independent exploration or additional optional tours. Travelers can choose to visit La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi’s architectural wonder that’s been under construction for more than 100 years, or stroll along La Rambla, a street where travelers can sample local cuisines while enjoying street performances by local artists. From beautiful beaches to the renowned Dalí Museum, the possibilities are endless for travelers who embark on this bucket-list-worthy vacation.

“Travelers who are interested in the Breathtaking Barcelona tour should book fast,” says Goldman. “The demand for this program has been so great that only a few travel dates remain available.”

The eight-day Discover Spain tour starts at just $1,999, and includes round-trip airfare from Newark (EWR) (or other cities at a supplement in cost) via scheduled carriers, including fuel surcharges, taxes, and fees; all ground transportation and transfers; nine meals, with wine and mineral water served with all dinners; first-class accommodations; comprehensive touring with entrance fees; professional, English-speaking local tour guides; and headsets for enhanced sightseeing.

The Breathtaking Barcelona tour, starting from $1,499, includes round-trip airfare from New York (JFK) or Newark (EWR) (or other cities at a supplement in cost) via scheduled carriers, including fuel surcharges, taxes, and fees; an arrival transfer; four nights of accommodations in a first class hotel; breakfast daily; and a one-day Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour pass.
