Owner description: City Running Tours offers both guided group and personalized running tours to accommodate any athletic ability, style, training regimen or specific landmarks. Our goal is to shape each tour based on our client's needs both as a runner and a tourist and because of this, they love the intimacy, breadth of knowledge, and the unique and local perspective that our running tours offer. We are a team of running enthusiasts providing an opportunity to experience a city in an exciting way. We connect with like minded individuals from all over the world because of our passion for running as well as the city we call home. Through this reward, we are able to showcase the history and culture of a city while promoting a healthy lifestyle, instilling self confidence and making people feel like themselves. Our service is ideal for the business traveler who is tired of the hotel treadmill, the marathon runner who is training for a race, or the recreational runner who wants to explore new and interesting routes. Experience New York City at street level through the eyes and legs of someone who works, plays and runs there. Share your love of running with us as we share our city with you!

I found the City Running tour on line. I was looking for a way to run in the city, with out getting myself lost. I got to do a little running and was filled with knowledge along the way. Michelle was very lovely, and the two soon to be guides that were training and joined the run were very friendly and offered some great idea's on places to go during my stay.

We absolutely loved our running tour of the East Village (5K)! I wish we could have stayed longer to do another one. City Running tour had lots of other tours available of NYC which sounded really exciting. Our guides were excellent, knowledgeable and really really friendly. They made sure we could all keep up with the speed and nobody was left behind. I cannot wait to take one of their tours again, it is the best way to see a city!

We signed up for the New York City Running Tours and are so glad we did! It was our family's first trip to NYC, and we scheduled the running tour for early in our trip. Jamie and Ben, our tour guides, met us at our hotel and had a great run set up for us. We ran along the Hudson River, then to Battery Park, the 9/11 Memorial, Wall Street, the Brooklyn Bridge, a short run in Brooklyn, the Manhattan Bridge, Chinatown, Little Italy, and back to our hotel. Jamie had lots of interesting facts about the places we visited. The run was at just the right pace for our family. The best part is that we got an overview of the city, making it easier for us to navigate our sighseeing, as well as our daily runs, for the rest of our trip.

Thanks to City Running Tours for the fun and educational experience. Definitely the highlight of our trip!

Thanks so much to Katelyn. A perfect Monday morning as the Sun was rising. Battery Park, Financial District and ov er the Brookyn & Manhattan bridges, Chinatown and Little Italy. Amazing experience and highlight of my holiday. Katelyn was very friendly and helpful and a joy to run with. Perfect way to get a taste of New York without feeling like TOO much of a tourist.
