What to Expect

For a tour with breath taking views over Edinburgh look no further. This tour will set your heart racing (perhaps due to a wee hill), and will leave you in awe at the incredible beauty of Edinburgh, gracing us with views beyond Edinburgh and over to Fife.

We believe to truly experience and connect with your surroundings you must sweat in them :-)

We are passionate about running and exploring new places, in an environmentally sustainable manner. Running tours are the perfect opportunity to keep fit, see the sights and learn a little bit about your surroundings. Our running tours allow you to get your bearings, exercising your heart and brain at the same time.

Our aim is to provide you with insight and show you the beauty of your surroundings. We will guide you along fabulous routes and point out places of interest during your running tour. We like to laugh, so there is always optional silliness and plenty of pictures along the way (life is too short to be serious!)

We go where the tour buses can't and you will see more on a running tour than you would on a walking tour, so lace up your trainers! Life without running, fun and adventure is a mere existence. Why walk.... when you can run!

  • 1-2 hour guided running tour throughout the picturesque and historically rich city of Edinburgh
