I did the Volunteer/Washington Park Urban Trail 10K Run with City Running Tours. It was my favorite thing that I did on my first visit to Seattle! Dennis and his friends were very nice and fun to run with. I learned so much about the city. The course was beautiful with lots of variety. We ran on wooded trails, floating walkways and through lovely neighborhoods. Dennis took photos along the way and emailed them to me so I had nice mementos of our run. I was training for a half marathon and needed to add more miles after we finished so Dennis and his friends devised a nice 6 mile run along the water that took me back to my hotel downtown. It was perfect! I would highly recommend City Running Tours and look forward to checking them out in other cities.

This is perfect for the traveling runner! Whenever I visit a new place, I like to explore my surroundings by running. Why not have a guided tour? The tour of the parks was loads of fun, finding a super cool floating bridge and info about the places we visited that I'd never get from running solo. Our guide Dennis was very knowledgeable about the city and very good with communicating with us pre and post run. No need to be intimidated about speed, it was very do-able and all about an enjoyable morning. The one drawback is the price was a bit steepish, but I'm glad I did this and will have good memories and photos.

I did the 10K Volunteer and Washington Park Urban Trail Run, and had a great time! Dennis was knowledgeable about the sights we passed by. I also loved that he carried water and a camera, so I didn't have to worry about it. He also was extremely communicative about registering prior to the event, as well as pacing and directions as we were running. My only suggestion would be have more photo opportunities! Still, I'd highly recommend it, and would love to do it in other cities, too!

I live near Seattle but had never really explored the Fremont neighborhood. This is a really fun way to do so. If you are more of a jogger don't be put off-the pace belongs to the people! Lots of pics near the landmarks and memories of something fun I did with my sis. I will definitely book another neighborhood run.

What an awesome way to see a city! I did the Beer 5k with both Dennis and Rita, which took us through Fremont, a fun and funky area in Seattle along Lake Union. Lots of art, culture, fun facts, and Dennis' puns and jokes. Run was not challenging, but had some nice, short, hills near the start. The start and finish was at Fremont Brewery, where I give the Randal IPA two thumbs up! I will be posting a full review complete with the awesome pics Rita took at westtoast.com later this week!
