Start your day in New York City off with a morning run through Times Square. While going on a run in a new city can be intimidating, by joining a group of fellow runners and a guide you can squeeze in a jog while also sightseeing. Plus, a running tour enables you to maximize your time: see more than you could on a walking tour while still avoiding getting stuck in traffic.
Join City Running Tours on two days of guided running tours throughout New York City's most well known landmarks. Day 1 will take you on an 4 mile adventure through the world's most well know green space, Central Park. It's hard to imagine that everything you see while running through park was put there by design, but that's exactly what you'll experience on this running tour. The lower portion of the park features the most ambitious landscape architecture ever implemented in the United States and magically escorts the viewer out of the city and into a peaceful park surrounding. Day 2 brings you on a 4 mile tour over the most iconic landmark in all of New York, the Brooklyn Bridge. At any time of day the bridge provides great views of Manhattan and Brooklyn and offers a look back at the origins of modern day New York City, when Manhattan and Brooklyn were still separate cities. Run with us and check off your bucket list as these will be two days that you will always remember!
Combine your daily workout with a one-of-a-kind sightseeing tour: this unique 5k will introduce you to the Lower East Side’s colorful murals and street art, all while helping you break a sweat and stretch your muscles. Meet your group in the neighborhood, come prepared with comfortable running gear, and stow your belongings. Then, hit the pavement. As you jog through the streets, you’ll pause to admire pieces by artists like Tristan Eaton, Shepard Fairey, and more.
You can do it virtually on your own. We will send you customized tools so you can use for your virtual race!
