Who Are WRP Tours?

WRP Tours, or Weston Running Promotions to give it its full title – was established in 1989 by the husband and wife team of John and Maggie Joyner – and is based in Weston-super-Mare.

Over the years this family business has successfully organised tours to marathons both here and abroad building up a loyal clientele of runners – many of whom book with us year-on-year.

We work closely with many major charities who have found that we take special care of their runners – many of whom are first-time marathoners.

Five years ago Roland Gibbard joined the organisation and following John’s retirement Roland now heads WRP Tours, assisted by John’s daughter Caroline – thus retaining the family connection.

Roland has competed in marathons both here and abroad with a best time of 2hrs 20mins. He has a wealth of running contacts and experience built up over many years both as a competitor and race organiser. He has worked on a number of big city marathons including the London Marathon plus the 2012 Olympic Games.

Caroline is our office manager and event co-ordinator and has worked on many aspects of the marathon weekend tour. She has an eye for detail to ensure that your stay with us is as memorable as possible.

Complementing the ‘core team’ are a group of experienced weekend staff who have an extensive knowledge of both the marathon and your hotel.
