A friend of mine suggested this run as a unique, yet relaxed, 5k in downtown Austin. Our guide was Lee and he crushed it! I learned a lot about a city I've lived and worked in since college which is saying a lot as I'm quite active. Essentially, it's a refreshing way to see the city if you're a local... More

I enjoy running & I love tours, so this was perfect! Even though I've lived in the Austin area for 7 years, I learned a lot of new things & saw areas I haven't been to before. It was a little over a 5K, which was great! The pace was very reasonable & comfortable, with walking & picture stops sprinkled... More

I organized a large conference in Austin and wanted to give the attendees a few options to get out of the hotel & enjoy the city. The City Running Tour - Austin was a fantastic choice! Lee was great to deal with ahead of time & even more fun in person. The participants were thrilled with the run, the pace,... More

Lee is the man. Do not miss this tour. Fantastic. I did this my second day in Austin and it really helped me get a feel for the place and I got some great recommendations. Also, Lee will point out celebrities sighted in passing.

Great way to see the city and burn some calories! Even if you're a beginner runner they do a great job of keeping pace. I highly recommend Lee if you can get him!! He is absolutely hilarious, super knowledgable of the city and can also tell you all the cool music hotspots that the locals go to. :-)

Went on a private run with Lee, he was extremely knowledgable on the history of Austin. He made the run fun and went at my pace. Lee was a strapping young fella with who had great energy!

Lee, the tour guide, had a vast knowledge of all the little nuances of the city that really make you appreciate some of the local history. He also did a nice job of taking us to places all over the city, so we could get a lay of the land. Really personable and a highly recommended way to start a... More
