Keep up your daily mileage and take in the sights of a new city with a sightrunning tour, a growing worldwide trend in the travel industry that helps travelers explore destinations on foot.

 

Now sprinting through 50 cities on six continents, sightrunning tours offer runners an active and eco-friendly way to experience the sights, sounds and smells of a new place while also getting a workout in. Companies around the globe provide personalized or group tours with guides who take runners past historic sights and give the history of the city as well as insider information on hot spots. Ranging from approximately $30–100, tours can be designed to visitors’ interests and fitness levels.

 

Go! Running Tours provides an extensive list of sightrunning companies worldwide, making it easier for travelers to find and book a tour with members in Africa, Australia, Canada, Europe and the United States.

 

City Running Tours operates in several cities in the United States, including Annapolis, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland, Providence, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C. The company offers personalized tours, catering to clients’ preferences for distance, pace and sight interests, as well as a weekly schedule of group runs that range from three to six miles.

 

Next time you’re on vacation, forget sightseeing; lace up your sneaks and try sightrunning!
