It was a great way to see Chicago in the morning, running into sunset, Blake was a very good guide, adapting to my speed the whole time and giving much insight and even bringing water along.

Our morning running tour was really enjoyable and we learned quite a lot about the history of Chicago. Our guide, Michael, was knowledgeable and friendly, and seemed to be having as much fun as we were. Although I'm an experienced runner in decent shape my aging knees found some of the stairs a bit of a challenge, but Michael was... More

Michael was our tour guide and he was just great! This was a great way to experience the beauty of Grant Park and get some exercise while you're at it! We did not run the whole time. We did stop at certain points where Michael gave us an explanation of what we were seeing. I highly recommend City running tours... More

This was a great tour. Marlin was welcoming and made sure the pace was right for everyone. This was the best way to see the park from top to bottom and explore areas that I probably wouldn't have seen on my own. Marlin added color and historical information along the way. You can't get this type of interactive experience from... More

It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned runner or one whose pace is pretty slow (like me). If you want a tour on the streets of Chicago with a Chicago native and with wonderfully interesting sights and stories, then Chicago Running Tour is for you! I was on the Tragic Events tour with Marlin. I was concerned because I... More

This was by far one of the most fun tours I have been on! I had no one else to do this tour with me, so it was fun to join up with others for this run. It was a good pace, not a slow run that I thought it could possibly be. They took great pictures, have a lot... More

This is a very nice way to spend a morning, I learned about Chicago and I'm a local. Crisp sunny morning run through the park as you learn about history and modern day culture.

I had the pleasure of running the Grant Park tour yesterday -- this is such a great way to explore the park! There are statues, gardens, and sights that I've never seen while living in Chicago for over a decade. Marlin and Michael were excellent tour guides, making the experience fun and informative.

I could not have been more impressed with this tour! Marlin & Mike were fantastic guides and def went above & beyond any expectations. Prior to the tour starting, being a runner, I wondered how a 5K can possibly last two hours. However, the tour was well planned & kept us actve the entire time. As promised, they sent us... More
