A fun, educational, casual run that introduces you to downtown Austin. Lee was energetic and kept everyone amused. Oh, and the beer was good!

Even living in Austin for the past year, I really enjoyed this. I learnt a few things about the city that I now live in, got to share that with people who were seeing it the first time, and of course got to have a few tasty beers along the way

This was our first running tour anywhere and it was a blast. Lee was a great guide and we saw a lot of the city we never would have seen or known about! The pace says 10 min/mile but you stop a good amount to take pics and the pace is much slower so anyone really can do it! You... More

I visited Austin mid February 2015 for running the marathon. I enjoyed very much the kindness and good sprits of the staff, and, of course... The great beer! Plan to repeat the experience every time! Ulrich

Get rid of Austin saturday downtown traffic visiting it running the streets. Enjoy delicious tastes of beers while you are knowing historic places and monuments. Warm you legs, sweat your tee, cool your throat and give joy to your heart before going to rest.

Really great experience. Wanted to work a few kinks out prior to the race on Sunday. Pace was slower than expected but it worked out well. Got to try out some cool bars in Austin we hadn't been to before. Lee did a great job with the fun facts to make it interesting and educational. Staff was great and the... More

Was a fun group, mostly because the tour was awesome. First timer going to Texas for the Austin Half Marathon and was a must tour! 3 miles of fun followed by beer at a bar of some sort. Check it out. You won't be disappointed! -STL

We had a really great experience with the Austin City Running Tour. It was a cold and rainy day, but Lee's expertise and energy made the tour fun. I've been coming to Austin since I was a kid and have lived here since July, but I was surprised how much new information I learned about the city on the tour.... More

This was my first 5K in Austin, and it was also my first Beer Run (The local beer and joints were great). I had a blast, even in the freezing temperature. I plan to do it again when I visit Austin next summer or winter. It's a must for the fitness minded visitor or city explorer.
