We were excited to find this unique way to experience the Freedom Trail... It felt great to get a run in while learning about Boston and American history. Ginger was our tour guide, and she was friendly and informative. We highly recommend this run, whether your with a significant other, family, or by yourself. The shirts are nice and make... More

I ran on 7th Sep with Eddie as the guide. It was a really great morning, seeing a lot of the history of Boston as well as fitting in some exercise I'd not yet had time to do. The run is well paced, it's not too hard as you're stopping regularly but at the same time you get to see... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Ginger. As a new Bostonian, it was an excellent way to see the city & have a closer look at some of the sights. Ginger was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I appreciated the size of the group (about 18 people); it made it easy for everyone to stay together. I will definitely consider doing... More

I lived in Boston for 8 years, have done many tours, but this one is easily my favorite. Amazing to run the Freedom Trail, get your history on, and break a sweat (have no fear, beginners, it's a nice pace). There's no better way to see all the colonial sites, see the neighborhoods, get up close, and end with a... More

We ran on a beautiful Saturday morning in a group of apx. 45 people - a combination of visitors and locals. In just two hours we saw the highlights of the Freedom Trail and got in our morning exercise. The running part of the tour isn't hard - folks of almost any fitness level and age can participate. There are... More

Ginger was an incredible tour guide who ran a great pace, had great energy and definitely knew her history! Her enthusiasm for making the morning run fun was contagious and everyone was all smiles the whole way (including the final uphill push). Just visiting for the weekend, this is a great way to see some of the historical sights of... More

My husband, 12 year old son and I ran the Freedom Trail Run on a beautiful Sunday morning in July! What a very fun way to see the sights. Eddie and his assistants were so nice, knowledgeable and just a lot of fun! The run was casual, not too strenuous, but we definitely felt like we got some exercise. The... More

Our family (14 yo, 11 yo and 8 yo) had a private run. After a little miscommunication in the beginning, we got our run scheduled and it was definitely worth the wait. Emma was our guide and was fantastic! She is very personable and clearly has a wealth of knowledge about the city and presented it all in a fun,... More

Enjoyed the Freedom Trail 5K run - Ran it with my family (hubby, 11 yo and 13 yo girls) and my nieces / nephews (in their 20's) - everyone enjoyed it, even those who worked in Boston learned something new! I highly recommend!

What a great way to get out in the morning air, get some exercise, and learn a lot that we didn't know about the history of Boston! We were lucky to have clear dry sunny weather, the city and the historical sites are less crowded early, and our guide, Shelly, was upbeat, charming, and full of interesting information. Pretty perfect... More
