Freedom Trail Run is the ACTIVE way to tour Boston! Our two hour guided run is relaxed & super-interesting and will show you Boston in an up-close and detailed way that's unlike any other tour. During the run, we stop at over 16 major historic sites to learn interesting facts (and take pictures!), and wind-up getting a great workout by the time we finish. Registration includes the guided run, return boat ride, drink and a great shirt.

I've lived in Masschusetts my whole life but never followed the freedom trail. As runners, this was the only way to go for my husband and I. In a city with the most historic running event in the world, the Boston Marathon, there is no better way to visit and learn about the most historic places in our country's great... More

Had an awesome 5k run with Ginger! She was very knowledgeable throughout the most unique tour I've ever been on. Would definitely recommend this run to any runner interested in seeing the historical sights of Boston.

What an awesome way to see the Freedom trail early in the morning before the crowds and not wander aimlessly. Love the cute little nooks and crannies that we got to see that I would otherwise just pass on by. The bread store was awesome. Eddie-o did us well with his recommendations.

First we all get together and get the guidelines for the run. We stop 15/16 times during a 5k, which makes it fun, not hard at all! Plus, it is not a competition, you jog to enjoy the sites, at your own pace. Pictures are taken during the run, they can later be checked on facebook. The guides are super... More

We had the pleasure of running along Boston's freedom trail with Freedom Trail Run on a beautiful Saturday. Our guide told us the history of all the sights as we stopped at them. Plenty of stops so even beginner runners can keep the pace. A boat ride back to downtown Boston,a drink, and an event shirt were extra bonuses. Lots... More

A fantastic tour! Amazing guides take you for a nice easy run through some of the major historical points in Boston giving you a unique look at this fabulous city's history. It takes about 2 hours from start to finish. A "must do" if you visit Boston! So much fun! It's with every penny!

Though I've lived within an hour of Boston almost my entire life, I've never really done the Freedom Trail. I thought this was a great way to do it. I got some exercise and learned something about the city. Because I'm a bit of a military history nerd, I was able to ask some nit-picky questions which stumped the tour... More

Best tour I have ever been on. If you can walk and or jog casually 4km, you can do this tour no problem. There are many stops so you have a lot of time to catch your breath. The tour guides are great. Very informative and friendly. We got to see all of Boston in a couple hours. It was... More

My cousin and I had a great time on the Freedom Trail Run. The guides were awesome. Eddie, Ginger and Brittany were full of historical information, fun facts, and had great energy while motivating us throughout the run. Loved the t-shirt included and the pictures posted of the run on Facebook afterwards- nice touch. If you don't run at all... More
