Endurance Sports Travel's first tour was in May, 2002. After winning IRONMAN Brazil 3 times, Ken Glah started Endurance Sports Travel to make traveling to IRONMAN Brazil both convenient and fun for athletes and spectators. After spending more than 20 years racing around the world, Ken knows from experience what it takes to travel overseas with all your triathlon gear and family as well. Soon after that first trip, Endurance Sports Travel was asked by the race organizers of IRONMAN 70.3 Pucon in Chile and IRONMAN Switzerland in Zurich to help athletes interested in their events. As athletes requested more destination races EST continued to expand. When you travel with Endurance Sports Travel you not only get to experience the culture of the area you are visiting but also get to interact with other EST clients from all over the world. Our main goal is exceptional customer service so whether you are traveling with us for the first time or the 10th time, we will do our absolute best to help you achieve your goals.
