City Running Tours Austin was a great way to get in some running and see the city. I planned a 5 mile private running tour and was very pleased with our experience. Lee put up with my many emails and was incredibly flexible as I changed plans (which changed our route). I appreciated having some insights into Austin and seeing... More

Very cool and laid back. Good atmosphere. Went alone on a lark to get back into running, and ended up having a lot of fun with the other people that went.

I highly recommend City Running Tours for anyone trying to experience Austin in an unconventional way. Lee was incredible -- accommodating, interesting, and passionate about running and Austin. I was worried the pace would be too fast for me, but the group ran at a comfortable pace. It was great learning more about Austin this way! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I am a mediocre runner at best. To be completely honest I had no idea how I ended up on a running tour but let me tell you, this is one coolest and most rewarding things I've ever experienced in Austin. Our guide, Lee was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and I appreciate that he kept the group on a comfortable pace.... More
