Austin not only offers more than a century's worth of history as the capital of Texas, but also lays claim to the title of 'Music Capital of the World', 'Silicon Hills', and the most progressive city in Texas because of the local's devotion to the mantra 'Keep Austin Weird'. With bright clear skies, sunny landscapes, and a bustling downtown, Austin is best seen while afoot. By offering an assortment of themed runs, CRT Austin allows you to explore the history of Texas' statehood, Austin's vibrant music scene, and a beautiful run around Lady Bird Lake that ends with Austins's famous Bat colony exodus from the South Congress Bridge. By running with City Running Tours, you can see these things first hand with a knowledgeable guide who shares your passion for running. « less

My husband and I came to Austin to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays. This run was a great workout, a history lesson and SO enjoyable!!! Lee was so easy going and kept us at a great pace the entire run. I never thought we could see so much in just an hour! One of the best parts of our trip... More

I'm not sure how many brides-to-be are as luck as I am to have friends that will put up with her adventurous ideas - but when I suggested we do a 5k together during my bachelorette party, a few of them must have thought I was nuts. Then again - they didn't know how awesome our Beer-Run experience with City... More

My boyfriend and I went on a beer running tour while visiting Austin and had a really terrific time! It's actually inspired us to do similar tours for future vacations. Abby was a fantastic guide and we learned so much about the city. The pace was pretty easy and allowed for conversation which was nice since I wasn't looking for... More

I just moved to Austin this past week, and my friend who road tripped with me from L.A. found this tour and thought it would be a great way to break into Austin culture. The run wasn't strenuous, but it was nice to get a few calories burned to make room for the delicious food we ate later. Lee was... More

After eating my way through Austin's fine eating establishments during my week-long stay in the city, this running tour served as a much needed escape from my gluttonous tendencies while mixing in some fun facts about the city that I would have never learned in a guide book. Lee was great and energetic--his passion for the city of Austin is... More

You don't have to be a serious runner to enjoy this tour. Ours ended at a "pub crawler", a trolley-type bar, pedaled by the people on the tour. Great fun and easy, for all ages over 21! We will sign up again when our whole family is in Austin. Lee did a great job making certain everything moved smoothly from... More

To be fair it is the only 10K I've run - but I can't imagine a better one. My friend and I ran the Black Star 10K that started near the convention center, passed by the capitol, UT campus, historic Hyde Park neighborhood and then finished at a local Co-Op brew pub. As someone who does not typically enjoy running... More

I live in Austin and just wanted to push myself to run more, but was pleasantly surprised by the new information about my city I picked up on the way. Our guide, Lee, was super encouraging despite the fact that my friend and I weren't seasoned runners, and made the tour fun even when it got hard to keep going.... More

As an avid runner who also likes to imbibe hoppy, delicious beer, when I heard that city running tours not only provides a scenic tour of the city on foot but also ends the trip with a happy hour, I was intrigued. The experience did not disappoint. Lee, our guide, led us on a journey through the bustling city as... More

I went out on a Downtown 5k tor this weekend and had a blast jogging with the guides and other runners. Not only were we able to see the city while getting a workout in, but I was able to learn a lot of fun facts and laugh as we did it. I've done the duck tours in Boston and... More
