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.

This was a really fun experience! Ginger was an excellent tour guide, the group was great company, and running the Freedom Trail made for a wonderful way to see historic Boston. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who runs, even a little. If you enjoy history, and the random odd fact as well, this tour is for you!

This tour was excellent! Perfect way to see the city! Everyone runs at their own pace and there are many stops along the way. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We ended by taking the ferry across the Harbor. Good time!

I was going to be in Boston and found this on the internet. What a great way to see the city in a short time and learn some basic history. Taking the ferry across the Harbor after getting some hot chocolate was an extra bonus! Ginger was our tour guide and she was knowledgable about the facts she shared along... More

I'm not much of one to pay for a guided tour of a city, but I was with my sisters in Boston and we thought this would be a great way to see some Boston history. It was very well organized and a great overview of the Freedom Trail. It is not physically challenging or a competitive race by any... More

Highly organized, wonderful way to spend 2 hours running / slow jogging the freedom trail. We hit 16 sights and our guide Ginger shared a fun story mixed with historical background about the site. I ran with a group of 11 very nice people from all over the USA! The t-shirt is so nice as was the water / drink... More

i was meet by Ginger and a few other fellow runners at the meeting point on a very cold Saturday morning - but very soon you are warmly welcomed and people are open to each other - so in that atmosphere it was a pleasure to run and learn about Boston. Our guide Ginger was great and the tour shows... More

My friend and I were in Boston for only one day last weekend. In order to see as much as possible AND get some running time in, we signed up for the Freedom Trail Run. Not only did we get to see many of Boston's historic landmarks, but we learned a lot about our country's history. Our tour guide (Eddie)... More

On the first Day of November I joined Eddie,Ginger and my fellow group of runners on the freedom trail run. It was an excellent way to see the sights with great information imparted to us at every stop. The run was a good pace but always catering for all levels of runner so even the semi walkers were always with... More

Took this tour on a Sunday morning in October. The tour was great and Ginger, the guide, taught us a lot. Glad we did this tour because we will able to cover the whole trail in about 2 hours. The boat ride back was good way to end it and you get a great view of the city. The longest... More
