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

Lee was a great leader and explained everything along the way, making the run much more enjoyable! My field hockey team went and enjoyed not only the encouragement but the information given!

It was a great way to get some exercise but at the same time get to know the city. My entire field hockey team went and Lee was great at motivating and keeping a good pace for everyone. It is a must for Austin runners at any level!

Being new to Austin, I wanted a way to learn more about the city...and it's beer. So, my sister and I tried the 5k Beer Tour.

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
