Overview
Join me for a 4 mile run sprinkled with stories most Philadelphians don’t even know! Rather than feeling like a tourist, you’ll become a local weaving through the streets of Philly with me. In addition to being America's first capital and Ben Franklin’s hometown, did you know Philly invented the Cowboy Hat and Fast Food? We explore those little known facts and hundreds more. I'll tie together the unique Philly story as we run through its 5 main squares and tap into common themes like freedom, inclusion, reinvention, pop culture and many American Firsts. Philly's beautiful, flat & straight streets are full of history - perfect for running tours! Whether you're here on vacation, business or even a local, there's no better way to learn about Philly while breaking a sweat! This tour is more fulfilling than running on a hotel treadmill and better than getting lost in the city alone. You'll receive a detailed map overview (PDF) of 50 sites from our run to help you explore further!

This was the perfect way to explore Philly's hidden gems. I had so much fun learning about the history and culture of this beautiful city through Ian's engaging stories... all while keeping fit and earning that quintessential cheesesteak! Couldn't have enjoyed this more, well

It’s a great idea to explore the city by running! I m a very active person, those traditional walking tours are good but a bit boring sometimes. Phillyrun is very different and yet great way to see the city. Definitely worth it!

I loved my running tour of Philly! We started in Washington Square and from there ran to the 4 other “squares” while Ian told me all about the interesting sites along the way. I’ve visited Philly several times before and still learned a lot and finished with a newfound
