Had a great time on the spoon and cherry run. Learned interesting facts about the city from a whole different perspective. Great guide. Very worthwhile! Way better than running on the treadmill in the hotel!

I took the Spoon and Cherry tour while I was in town for a conference. It was seriously one of the most fun tours I've ever taken. My guide Tony was knowledgeable and fun and our little group was chatting away in no time. I would totally recommend this tour and I am thinking of checking out tours in other... More

The City Running Tours Minneapolis Spoon & Cherry Run was my first running tour and I had a fantastic time. Our running guide was super friendly and informative. I saw and heard things about Minneapolis that I would not have discovered running on my own (although I enjoyed doing that, too). This tour combined two of my favorite things -... More

This was a real fun way to see Minneapolis. Nate was an excellent guide - lots of cool facts and attentive to the comfort of the runners. Have visited MSP many times - and saw lots of new stuff. Ending beer tasting and pint was at a cool place.

It was super interesting and fun. James our guide was a friendly, cool guy. He helped us pace so it was challenging but not too much for an amateur runner (me). James taught us some awesome things about Minneapolis and about running. I loved visiting Fulton Brewery which I had heard a lot about. It was novel thing to do... More

My friend and I did the 5K Uptown and Lakes run this past weekend. It was just okay. Our guide was not very personable and in dire need of a shower. I was hoping for more fun facts about the area, but heard very little. The package also promised a bottle of water and a Clif bar, and we received... More

The organisers did a good job accomodating various running proficiency levels. The scenery was good, and it was a fun event (even during some snow).

I'm not an avid runner, in fact a little overweight and just wanted to do something fun and healthy, so talked my sister into her first 5k. It was great to run around Mnpls with a guide giving us the history and taking our picture at a lot of places. Highly recommend the run to every one, it's a ton... More

Even with temps in the teens, we had a great time seeing the city & getting a little exercise. Fun for a group. Don't need to be "runners" to enjoy. Relaxed pace & beautiful route.
