I came to Austin with a friend to have a weekend on the town when we saw Austin running tours on trip advisor. Lee was our guide and did a great job explaining the cool ins and outs of Austin while mixing in his own sense of humor! We had a great time and we definitely felt better afterwards! Highly... More

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

I did the downtown tour. It was a really great time - learned a ton and got in some exercise as well. Lee was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and fun. Definitely will be doing another one the next time I'm in Austin. Thanks!

A group of friends and I took the 5k downtown tour. A couple of us are new to town and it was an excellent introduction to landmarks, history and where the hot spots are. Our guide, Lee, was super funny and informative. He even emailed us a list of bars and restaurants to check out around town. The pace was... More
