City Running Tours is a team of running enthusiasts that provides an opportunity to experience a city in an exciting way. We connect with like minded people from all over the world because of our passion for running as well as the city we call home. Through this reward, we are able to showcase the history and culture of a city while promoting a healthy lifestyle, instilling self confidence and making people feel like themselves. Ideal for the business traveler who is tired of the hotel treadmill, the marathon runner who is training for a race, or the recreational runner who wants to explore new and interesting routes, City Running Tours offers both guided group and personalized runs to accommodate any athletic ability, style, training regimen or specific landmarks. These runs are personal so it will be the running guide along with the registered clients. We can go further than a walking tour, as far as a bus tour and on the roads that most buses and segways are unable to.At City Running Tours our goal is to shape each tour based on our client's needs both as a runner and a tourist and because of this, they love the intimacy, breadth of knowledge, and the unique and local perspective that our running tours offer. Our clients experience a city at street level through the eyes and legs of someone who works, plays and runs in that city. Share your love of running with us as we share our city with you!

I did the Brooklyn Bridge running tour this morning, and even in adverse weather conditions of sleet and snow, Brett Johnson - my fearless running guide - was equally keen and unstoppable as I was to still go through with it. The tough weather made it a truly memorable experience. Brett not only provided inspiration and encouragement, but also shared... More

My trip to New York City was great and one of the best parts was city running tour. I loved it! Coleman, the running guide did a great job showing things along the route. I got to sight see and run. A great combination!

I stuffed up my booking due to wifi issues but didn't realize until 10:30 the evening before as I hadn't received confirmation. I emailed Coleman direct and he emailed me straight back and was able to accommodate my sister and I for the very next morning at 9am. Total legend guy! I really enjoyed the running tour and the information... More

On November 3rd, 2015 I ran in Central Park with Alex as my City Running guide. The 5 mile run was amazing! While running at my pace through the park, Alex pointed out items of interest and provided historical information and interesting facts about the sights I was seeing. Alex emailed pictures from the run within an hour of the... More

Honestly, this company surprised me. My husband and I did the Culture Clash run and had a bad experience. When we expressed our dissatisfaction with the company, they refunded our money AND offered a personal running tour. We did not ask them to do either of those things! Part of me even thought, "I hated it. Why would I do... More

I cannot recommend City Running Tours (CRT) highly enough after our recent experience in Central Park. Our group, in the city for the New York City Marathon, wanted to take in a light 3 mile run before race day and contacted Coleman at CRT with our enquiry. Added to our request was the fact that we were also shooting a... More

What a great way to see the city! Brett was our guide and was great! He was very knowledgeable about the history of New York. He took us to several off the beaten path places in addition to seeing all the major sites of the area. Everyone was very friendly. This is a must!

I highly recommend the Brooklyn Bridge running tour! While it seems early, it's entirely worth it to see the sun rise over the Manhattan skyline. Coleman was an extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide. The meetup point was confusing as to what side of the Bridge we were to meet, so I unfortunately missed a chunk of the initial portion of...

I spent the weekend in NYC with my husband and another couple, none of whom are runners. I have been to NYC before and run Central Park, so I chose a personalized tour with Coleman, who met me at my hotel at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning. He created a 9 mile run that wove from my Midtown hotel through... More

One of the highlights of my trip was running on the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. I chose a 6 mile personalized run. My guide, Coleman was very knowledgeable and super nice. I would have never attempted to run this route on my own. Felt very comfortable and safe running with a professional guide. Got great shots and learned a lot... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
