Book a Personal Running Tour today, and let us show you what makes San Francisco such an amazing city for running. I'm sure you will agree that one of the best ways to see and experience San Francisco is in a pair of running shoes. The weather and climate in San Francisco is almost ideal for running year round. In the winter, the San Francisco bay helps keep the temperature from dipping too far below 40 degrees, and breeze from the pacific helps keep the summer temps ideal for an afternoon run.

Great way to get a run in!

I really enjoyed my run along the Embarcadero down to Fisherman's Wharf. It was raining when we began, but what runner hasn't run through rain? It was a great run at a comfortable pace with good information and conversation. Wish I had time to do another, longer run!

When recently in San Francisco, I joined John on the 5K tour underneath the Bay Bridge and on to the Ballpark. The route was very good for running and it was real fun to see a famous American baseball arena. I really recommend to run in SF with City Running Tours !

As runners, we really wanted to run the Golden Gate on our anniversary trip to San Francisco, but in planning I had some difficulty figuring out all the rules to do so, as well as where to get on/off. We were also concerned about winding up in a bad area, or getting lost. In my research, I came across City... More

Great run with John! He was most friendly and shared a lot of information with us as we ran along the San Francisco wharf. A good pace was kept with fellow marathon runners as well as for my daughter who was a beginning runner. We stopped to take pictures of the seals, and to hear the history of the sourdough... More

I ran the "Sourdough Bakery and Fishermans Wharf 5K Run" together with John, my running guide for the day. Because there was no one else running with me, I had the feeling of a private tour. It was a pleasant run, ideal before having breakfast. John was knowledgeable and told me a lot of interesting things about the City and... More

This was our first running tour and it was great. We booked a private 6 mile run with John. He came by our hotel 6:00AM sharp and took us to a great run from there to Golden Gate, running through Presidio. We had a surprise stop visiting Lucas Films offices, we had a blast! John knew a lot about the... More

My run with John was conversational, fun and informative. He goes at your pace and is so personable that the time flies. A lovely way to spend an early morning in San Fran!

Booked a private 6+ mile run for my wife and I with John. Left 8:30am from Union Square and we found that it was an excellent way to familiarise with the city and see a few cool things before the tourists took over. John chose a good route and proved to be very knowledgable guide on all things SF. We... More

Whenever my husband and I visit a new place, we like to explore the area with a running tour. It's a great way to see the city and learn about favorite spots from a local perspective. On this trip, our guide John, took us on a 3 mile run. We started at the Ferry Building and ran out to Pier... More

So many positive things to say. Love the early morning start times. I took the Fisherman's Wharf tour, and it was perfect to see the area without tourists in the early morning. I also really appreciate that the tour is led by a local, who knows the city well and can offer more interesting information. Even though I booked a... More
