We had a very good tour / run with Faye. She ran at our pace and was very knowledgeable, even with somebody that was from the area.

This was such a rejuvenating way to spend a Sunday morning! Our tour guide, Fay, did such a wonderful job! She made sure everyone had enough water and we all were comfortable with the speed. It was a small group, but I could see us wanting to be friends after the run. It was just wonderful and I can't say... More

It was a great way to get oriented to the city and learn some nice place to go running on my own. The tour guide, Faye, was great!

This was my first time doing a city running tour and it was a blast! We loved our tour guide, Rich - he was awesome. A little history, some running and what is better then ending at Yards Brewery? It was a fun way to learn new things about the city. I will definitely do another one soon!

This was my first time doing a city running tour and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a great and easy way to see some of the city. The only drawback was if you weren't running along side of the tour guide you missed her descriptions. Not sure how they could improve that aspect. I am not a good runner,... More

I'm so glad I signed up for this. Even though I'm from Philadelphia I learned a lot on this tour. It was nice to run a route that included places I don't get to see that often. Will definitely do it again!

A wonderful tour of historic Philadelphia. I had limited time in the city and really felt after this tour that I had a chance to see many of the key spots in the city. Very informative. A lovely run, thanks!

Annie was an amazing guide and made the perfect route to see everything that was on my list. I learned so much about the city, historical landmarks and pop culture. She was so easy to get along with that she felt like a was running with an old friend. 12 miles felt short because I enjoyed the tour so much!!
