Book a Personal Running Tour today, and let us show you what makes San Francisco such an amazing city for running. I'm sure you will agree that one of the best ways to see and experience San Francisco is in a pair of running shoes. The weather and climate in San Francisco is almost ideal for running year round. In the winter, the San Francisco bay helps keep the temperature from dipping too far below 40 degrees, and breeze from the pacific helps keep the summer temps ideal for an afternoon run.

My husband and I had a personalised running tour with John at the end of March. It was a great way to see the city and John was very accommodating with suggesting a route and going at a pace that suited me (slow) and my husband (fast!). John is personable and has extensive knowledge of the city - we had... More

I knew CRT 2 years ago and since then I always apply it everytime I visit to USA. This was my 4th CRT tours (Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco) for four days, a total of 26 miles runs. I requested John to visit the location where a photo in my jigsaw puzzle (indeed, I had gotten it at... More

A group of us were in san francisco for work, and decided to go on a running tour at the bay. John paced himself with us, got us a morning exercise and helped us understand a bit more of the bay area!

I had a personalized running tour with John on 3/4/14. He met me bright and early (7 am) at the place I was staying in SF. We ran through Chinatown, North Beach, all along the Embarcadero, and finished up by running through the financial district. I had never been to SF and had only arrived the night before, so the...

Long story short: John was extremely accommodating on timing, route, and running conditions and I highly recommend this service if you want to get to know San Francisco while you run. Here's the long story: My dad is currently training for the Boston Marathon and I thought it would be fun for us to set up a run through San... More

I did the Union Square/Chinatown and Sourdough/Fisherman's Wharf 5k runs with John Kamola during my stay in San Franciso, and it was the highlight of my trip. John knew the history of the areas where we ran, and his running experience was great too. I learned a lot about the city, and at the same time achieved personal records in... More

I booked a personal tour in advance of arriving in San Fran and it was the highlight of my trip. Emails were exchanged to iron out details as I were staying in Tiburon, so a wonderful route from Vista point (north side of the Golden Gate bridge) to Pier 39 was finalized (about 10 km). John, my tour guide, was... More
