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 had gotten out of running and after this tour I am jumping back in full force. Start out at the state house, travel through cemeteries where some of the... More

Having only three days to explore Boston, doing the Freedom Trail Run was a great quick way to get an overview of the whole trail and then go back and view the parts I wanted to see later. I'm over 50 and just started running earlier this year. It was fairly easy to do. It'll always be one of my... More

I grew up in Boston but heard this tour was fun from friends. It was a great way to brush up on my history. I was nervous about the running as I'm coming off an injury but guides were at the front and rear of the group so a slower pace wasn't an issue. I would highly recommend this tour.

If you enjoy jogging and enjoy a little history, this is a great way to see Boston. I loved the tour. There were many stops; not difficult; Ginger was a very friendly tour guide! Thanks, Ginger!

I googled this run and it did not disappoint. It does total a 5K but when you just run from one historical spot to another this would be running light as my says. This is about the tour guides and there information and they were really enjoyable to listen to and a fun morning. The sprint at the end was... More

At the beginning of the tour the points of interest are close together; so, we would stop often enough to listen to the guide and have some time to relax. The longest non-stop portion is over the bridge to Charleston; very smooth enjoyable run over the water. For me, the most difficult was running up the hill to the bunker... More

Hands down a non conventional active fun way to do the freedom trail run. Yes I being 55 and consider myself active found it a good pace. Towards the end my ol knees not feeling great my husband and I opt to go with the second guide to a short cut path. Very well planned tour and will do agin.

I enjoy walking tours of many cities, but have realized that you only get a small taste of what a city has to offer. Add the running atmosphere and history of Boston and you get the awesome Freedom Trail Run which let's you see more than any old walking tour. Ed and Ginger were knowledgable and great guides.

What a great idea! Loved this tour. My wife and I have been to Boston many times, and this was one of the most enjoyable things we've ever done. Eddie and Ginger were fun and knowledgable. Would recommend to anyone who can handle the running, which is not too fast and has many interesting stops along the way.
