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. « less

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

I really enjoyed the running tour with John. Since the other people postponed it ended up being a private tour, which I preferred. I haven't been running in a while and I don't run with others so this was a different experience. We kept a pace where I was still able to have a conversation and we walked when I... More

After booking a private tour, I read many favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. My expectations were high and John and his team met them. Booking was easy, the tour was informative and my 6+ mile run was a trip highlight. It was a great experience that you will not regret. His pictures were a nice touch too.

Experience SF like you've never experienced before with John. He's a fantastic tour guide who shares various bits of interesting information about the city and food recommendations that only a local can provide. He is very knowledgeable and knows the picture perfect locations to visit. This running tour is accomodating to each specific runner and his or her fitness level.... More

I absolutely loved my running tours with John! I booked two personalized running tours while attending a conference in San Francisco in May, 2014. I needed to do two training runs for a 50k race I was to run in June. I ran a 10k run and a 21k run with John. The highlight of my trip was running across... More

We visited San Francisco in April 2014 and did not one, but TWO running tours. I did the Union Square and Chinatown tour and had so much fun with John that I made my husband do the Fisherman's Wharf tour the next day with me! John is great. Knowledgeable, easy to talk to, not pretentious. Great suggestions for dining locations... More

Why use many words if there is one that describes it all?! In fact, all I can say is: AWESOME! Though I am not a sports person at all (I just "ran" along with my dad who doesnt speak English) I really and truly enjoyed this run! It was fun and informative and most importantly personalized! I can totally and... More
