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.

The tour was interesting, informative and much better than any walking tour I have ever done. We saw so much of Boston in the afternoon and it helped us decide where / what we... More

My 16 year old daughter and I had a great time this morning on this very informative jog. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. Smiley tour guides, great info, ride back on the ferry! We took the rest of the family and friends on the same tour afterwards... Walking if course! I highly recommend this tour, especially if you don't... More

I really enjoyed going on the Freedom Trail Run. It was a really unique way to see the different historical sites of Boston and how they relate to one another. My favorite part was when we raced up the hill to the Bunker Hill Monument. I've lived in Boston for two years and still learned something new.

Run from one historic point to the other with a sporty and knowledgable guide that tells you about the historic points. A great way to discover Boston! I would recommend it to anyone who can run the 5 k. The frequent stops make more accessible to all who do some running frequently.

I was looking for something to do on a Sunday morning in Boston and found the Freedom Trail Run. It mixed my interest in running with a tour of some key sites in the area. Even through you have to run the 5km please don't let that put you off the longest run is under a km and not a... More

This was a great experience for my 11 year old daughter. Hands on history is the best. We had the best guide, Ginger!! My daughter is still coming up with fun Boston facts. Would definitely recommend this for locals or visitors.

Great view of the Freedom Trail!!! Seeing a city on foot is great!! Stopped and saw all main points and learned in and outs about all of it!!! Run at your own pace because at each point you stop and talk.

One of the most fun tours done in Boston. Have to be able to run 5k but if you can, well worth it. Our guide Ginger was really good, wealth of knowledge and fun. Takes 2 hours and times flies or should i say runs by. Highly recommend.

So much fun. I am an avid, but slow, runner that hates guided tours. I had a blast with this. Perfect way to see the sites, without having to spend my entire day doing so. Eddie and Ginger are both so personable, and so very nice. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

My friend and I did the Freedom Trail Run on June 27, 2015. Eddie & Ginger were absolutely fantastic guides. They gave great information at each stop. It was never too much info, and the fun facts and stories kept it interesting and never boring. Even if you don't run often, this is such a great tour. Eddie & Ginger... More
