We booked the Burnham Plan run. Brian was our guide, and we was full of interesting and useful information. Very friendly as well. A great way to see Chicago. Highly recommend this if you enjoy running and sightseeing.

I was on my last week before my half marathon when I visited Chicago, so booked my long run with CRT. Great decision! I booked late, but Blake was very helpful and arranged everything quickly. Katie Schmid was great! Very kind and capable! She even carried extra gels and water in case I needed them! Everyone very willing to tailor... More

We went on a run on a cold morning in March, and it was the perfect way to start a day in Chicago. The tour covers a lot of the loop, much more territory than you can cover on a walking tour.

We had a great run with Blake through Beantown to the Haymarket Brewery. He was very knowledgeable, let us set our own pace, and there was a good combination of running and stopping to look at landmarks. Even though it was very cold we had a great time! Beer at the end makes it even more fun.

Thank you so much for your Review of our Haymarket Riot and Brewery Tour. It was an absolute pleasure taking you both on a tour of the Windy City! The Haymarket Riot is a piece of American history that often gets missed amongst all that Chicago has to offer when it comes to Landmarks, history and architecture. I am very... More

My 14 year old son and I took the "Ripped from the Headlines" tour with Blake on a cold Saturday morning. It was our first day in the city and gave us a nice overview for the rest of the trip. I chose the Headline tour because it fit the schedule and I thought it would be more appealing for... More

Hello! Thanks so much for the review here on TripAdvisor! It was a blast running with you and your son. I really love the "Ripped from the Headlines" Tour , both for the morbid 'Headline' making events that occurred here in Chicago but also for the notable architectural landmarks in the Loop like the Monadnock, Harold Washington Library and the...

My first time in Chicago. I met Aaron and we set out for 8 miles. On our path Aaron pointed out buildings and landmarks which at the time meant nothing to me. But when I went out on the following days and stumbled upon some of the places Aaron had previously pointed was key. How nice to now have a... More

Ran with Blake on New Years Eve day. It was a blustery day in the teens for temps, but Blake provided a warm experience for us as we navigated the Mag Mile and points of interest along the storied Streeterville neighborhood. Would book this company again for any of the other special tours.

Hi, Thanks for your review and recommendation of City Running Tours. We always appreciate the feedback and it's great to know I was able to give you a warm experience (despite the cold temperatures!) Streeterville is a storied neighborhood, no doubt about it. Between the former Playboy Headquarters, The Chicago Water Tower, the Hancock Building and Mr. Streeter himself, the... More

Did the Streeterville run on NYE. It was cold but expected that and bundled up. Our guide was knowledgeable and pointed out the sites. Did about three miles.

Hi, Thanks so much for your response. I am thrilled that you enjoyed the Streeterville Tour on New Years Eve. People always ask us about running in the cold, snow, and wind of Chicago in the winter. Obviously should an outdoor activity like a running tour prove too dangerous we will always postpone or cancel if need be, but I... More

Great way to start a morning of being a tourist. I had a very pleasant run with Jack, and besides getting a tour of the Millenium Park area, I got to ask tons of questions about Chicago in general and to chat about the upcoming marathon. I was the only person on the the run that morning, which was surprising.... More

Hi Megan, Thank you so much for your feedback, Jack will be please to know he did so well! I'm also glad he was able to match your pace. Larger groups can be tricky, but we will often have support guides who will run/walk with some of those who run at a slower pace. It's important that tour come first... More
