If you can get yourself to the Alamo at 8am and jog 3.75 miles (with over 15 stops and longest stretch was about half a mile), you need to do this tour! The guides who ran this tour were phenomenal! They are informative, articulate and entertaining (one of the guides is a prosecutor for the city as his full time... More

A family member and avid runner suggested this tour to my husband and I on our last trip to San Antonio. Being that I am a new runner I was a little intimidated but went for it(I have run only 5Ks for about a year). As expected the pace was quicker than what I'm used to running but the guides... More

This event is a really fun way to see sights in downtown San Antonio and to burn off some of those vacation calories! The guides were very friendly and accommodating and knowledgeable about local history. I will definitely be doing this again the next time I'm in SA (as of this writing, repeat runners can participate for free :-))

August 23, 2014 Run...Had no idea what to expect but didn't want one of those typical touristy "coming up on your left is the blah blah blah". It was an informative run/tour but to my pleasure, it was presented by a couple of working stiffs like myself that just do this on the side who talked to us like you'd... More

Awesome way to start the morning :) The tour guides were both fantastic. The run has about 15 stops, so no worries if you don't feel up to running a straight 5K.

I was so impressed with this run! They are very knowledgeable and I learned tons about San Antonio. I was worried it would be lots of stops and not enough of a run but it was a good run! That being said they were also great with all different abilities. One guide runs at the front, and one at the... More

I grew... More
