Really enjoyed this tour put on by Robin during the early hours of Barcelona's morning. This was a fantastic way to see the sights of Barcelona without too many citizens up and about. We covered Columbus and the Opera, a few Gaudi sites and roman cemetery and pillars. Robin sets an easy pace and it was a great way to keep up with my training while also seeing the city.

Found this running tour by accident (looking for a 10k run the weekend we had planned to visit Barcelona), and I am glad I did! We did 10k run in Old Town, started at 9 am, before the crowds were too bad and had a wonderful run. Robin is an awesome tour guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and fun! If you want a terrific experience (and some exercise on your holiday), definitely book a time to do this! Don't forget your camera--Robin can put a small one in his pack for you! :)

I had signed up for the 25K tour. Robin had advised me to start somewhat early (not later than 8am) which was a good idea. We had much of the city for ourselves for the first coupld of hours. Yes, you are right - I wrote "first couple of hours", because if you want to do this tour - which I can only recommend that you do - you must expect around four hours of running and listening to Robin. Robin was a great guide - he know every spot worth knowing in Barcelona, and he show it to you on this tour. Do the tour early on your trip to the wonderful city - it will prove a great backdrop for your exploration of the city afterwards. I particularly enjoyed our run through the old part of the city, including the Jewish quarter. Expect a lot of 90 degrees turns and stops underway. I also enjoyed our climbing the hill to the Guell Park. It came late in the run, which made it demanding, but it was well worth it. A great workout ending with the best view over Barcelona.

Jacquie arrived early to meet me at my hotel and even brought extra water for me. We went on an amazing 10K run through the Old Town, hitting all the high points just as the city was coming to life. When we met with roadblocks, she gracefully navigated them (literally), without missing a step. Robin had mapped out the run and it was exactly what I had asked for; Jacquie provided the perfect commentary and overview. I felt like I was just doing a run with a friend, a very knowledgeable one. It was the PERFECT antidote to jetlag and planning out where to tour with my family the rest of the week. This tour should be the first thing you do in Barcelona. Stop thinking about it, just book it, and you won't be disappointed!
