Run the Sights provides guided running tours throughout the picturesque and historically rich city of Edinburgh and the surrounding area. We also now have running tours in Glasgow and Dundee Here at Run the Sights we are extremely passionate about running and the outdoors and we want to share this with you, whilst having fun at the same time. We go where the tour buses can't and you will see more on a running tour than on a walking tour. Keep fit and sight see at the same time! Why walk.... when you can run! Come and join us for an interesting and great fun way to keep fit and simply the best way to explore Scotland.
