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

When my sister suggested doing a 5k running tour of Austin, I thought it was some sort of sick joke. Then she said the magic word: "beer." Finally, I could be judged in a positive way for running from bar to bar. The Beer Run, lead by the charismatic Lee, was an amazing way to see Austin. The pace was... More

We actually just moved to Austin earlier this year and thought it would be fun to take this tour and learn more about Austin and who doesn't like beer. The run was done at a very easy pace for you non runners out there but not too slow for the more avid runner. We did learn some pretty cool facts... More

I've lived in Austin for over three years, and this past weekend many of the mysteries that I had held for all of this time have been solved, such as…'what's that tower just over the 1st street bridge? What's the story behind the Driskill Hotel? What's the deal with all the bats!?! Lee led a really informative and well paced... More

I loved seeing Austin this way. It was great. Everyone was so nice and I really feel like I was able to experience the city in a very unique way. I would suggest this to anyone looking for something different.

City Running Tours is a great way to get to know the city. My wife and I came to Austin for the first time for a weekend, we're both avid runners so we thought this would be a good way to start out the trip. Couldn't have asked for a better time. We got to see a lot of iconic... More

I've lived in Austin for 5+ years and used to go running downtown by myself. I just love the feel of the concrete and the city waking up in the morning. City running tours gets it too! When I saw their downtown run I signed up immediately and brought one of my friends along. Our tour guide Lee was awesome!... More

I did the downtown running tour this past Saturday and it was a blast! I have lived in Austin for 14 years and I still found the run educational! I would definitely recommend City Running Tours for locals and tourists alike as the run was a comfortable pace and the tour was so interesting and entertaining I almost forgot I... More

Pitchers of beer + running in mid-June Texas heat...good idea? Wrong. GREAT idea!! I was wanting to do something fun last weekend, but also knew I needed to get in a workout. I didn't want to sacrifice either, so luckily I found City Running Tours and saw they were doing a Texas beer 5K. With my curiosity peaked, I signed... More

Lee at City Running Tours made our Texas Beer Run 5K a lot of fun. He set an easy, conversational pace, filled our heads with interesting Austin trivia then filled our bellies with good local beer. If you have to run, this is the way to do it.
