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! « less

Bret did a great job showing us around parts of the city we had never seen before, and he was patient with me when I could not run anymore. My mom had a great time seeing the Brooklyn Bridge, and overall, we had a blast.

My mum and I had a fantastic time on our Bridge Run tour, taken on a late August Saturday morning with a really lovely guide named Karl. Starting at City Hall and while we limbered up, Karl told us about the history of the area, all of which was very interesting and was a good way to start the experience.... More

When I was booking my running tour I jokingly put I'd like to run past CBGBs, a famous punk club in New York. Little did I realise that City Running Tours would match me up with a guide who really knew the music scene of New York! Coleman knew all the clubs and landmarks of the alternative music scene, brilliant!... More

This was a great run! My tour guide, Jenn Bridges, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We ran at a good pace, had great conversation, saw lots of the park and took some great photos. An excellent way to visit any city. Very happy I added this into my (already full) itinerary!

The organisation worked all well, I used their webpage and registered and paid there, and had a reply from one of their staff their same day. Even we delayed our trip, I could still use the same registration, and it has been worth to wait. The Central park is a great scenery to run, which was the route I choose,... More

The meeting place was easy to find. The guide, Karl, knew a lot and kept me very interested. We took photos whever I wanted one. The speed was customized to my speed. I highly recommend it. I want to take another city running tour, maybe tomorrow.

I've been to NYC a number of times, but never really explored Brooklyn. And, like many runners, I like running and beer. Put them together and you can certainly count me in. Much thanks to Rebecca for taking two of us on a tour through Brooklyn's sites. She was knowledgeable about the sites and also fun to talk with about... More
