This was my first running tour. I did not know the concept existed until I googled it. The part I liked the most for a person that wants to do it all in a short amount of time is how much we saw in the amount of time. Additionally, I was able to fit in my daily run while being... More

City running tours is a great way to see a part of a city while getting some miles in. Our tour guide Dennis was amazing. He made sure everyone was comfortable with his pace and was happy to adjust so everyone could stay together. The Fremont route was cool and something I couldn't have made myself as an out-of-towner. Cool... More

Dennis was awesome! He accommodated my special time request and provided an exceptional tour of the city. His knowledge of Seattle and the history both past and present was excellent! My colleagues thought I was silly for getting up so early to run but after hearing about the tour I think they were sorry they didn't go too! I highly... More

If you are active and looking for a great way to see the city this tour is perfect. Dennis did a great job showing me around the sights and to some cool places that I would've missed if I just explored the city myself. We ran at a comfortable pace and he was keen to stop and take a break... More

All though the whole process I have found these guys to be professional and helpful. I had a great tour with Katie - we started just near pike place market and ran through Seattle Center to... More

I did a 5ish mile running tour with Dennis yesterday and had a great time! We left from a coffee house just north of Pike's Market and wound through town, passing by the Olympic Park, the Seattle Center and various sights downtown. Dennis was very knowledgable about the history and architecture of the city. It was a great way to... More

Seattle is one of my favorite cities outside of my hometown in Oklahoma. This was my 4th visit and 1st time to try City Running Tours. I took the Pioneer Square/Waterfront 5k. The time went by so quickly I was somewhat disappointed when it was over! Kayla was a joy to run with (and knew how to watch for traffic... More

My boyfriend and I signed up for a private 6 mile tour. We were able to pick out sights and it was customized to us. Previously, we were running 2-3 miles as we had just started and the 6 miles was hard but it was totally doable. It pushed us but we were able to stop at lights and occasionally... More

Loved Dennis and the Fremont running tour. The route was really nice--a little bit of everything to show off this unique neighborhood. We learned a lot about the city and the people of Seattle. Of course, rehydrating at the Fremont Brewery was a fantastic end to the tour! Highly recommend.

I had such a great time doing the 5K waterfront tour, we hit so many interesting places. Cayla (my guide) was very knowledgeable, and generally just an enjoyable person to run with. Its a great way to see the city, and just feels great to go on a run when you are away. Plus your right at sea level, so... More
