Book a Personal Running Tour today, and let us show you what makes San Francisco such an amazing city for running. I'm sure you will agree that one of the best ways to see and experience San Francisco is in a pair of running shoes. The weather and climate in San Francisco is almost ideal for running year round. In the winter, the San Francisco bay helps keep the temperature from dipping too far below 40 degrees, and breeze from the pacific helps keep the summer temps ideal for an afternoon run.

This was a lot of fun! I really liked the course and the company! I am especially thankful for making it doable for my husband too, who is not very physically active, as the group would wait for him to catch up and he could enjoy it as well at his own pace. I think it is a wonderful way... More

My eleven year old daughter and myself recently enjoyed a wonderful morning with John and his fellow guides from City Running Tours. We toured the Lands' End Trail with very nice views of Baker Beach, Marin Headlands, and Golden Gate Bridge. Very knowledgeable guides with neat insights of the area, beautiful weather, and scenery. I highly recommend thia adventure to... More

John is one of the nicest chaps we have met on our trip to the U.S. and the way he told us things about SFO was very entertaining. It all worked smoothly, from the welcome-bag we were given upon arrival at our hotel, the meeting at the Golden Gate Bridge and the thoughtfully worked out run among the Piers, North... More

Despite recovering from a cold, John very kindly took me on a gentle 10 mile run around the Embarcadero and through the residential areas of San Francisco before returning me to my hotel. It was a thoroughly enjoyable run and I would recommend booking before you arrive for the first time to ensure an interesting and insightful run around this... More

Running with John Kamola across the Golden Gate Bridge on a sunny morning (without any fog!) was a wonderful experience! I booked this run a few weeks before we left to San Francisco. It was a real easy booking procedure, since you can decide in advance where you want to run and how many miles. Immediately after booking John got... More

I found this service while looking for good places to run during my time at San Francisco and couldn't be happier that I went ahead and signed up for a run. I went for the run on my first day in San Francisco and I can't think of a better way to start your visit. John, along with his excellent... More

City Running Tours SF is a brilliant experience and a great way to see the city. John is a super guy who is really friendly and very clued up on all parts of SF including history etc etc. I would definitely suggest this if you are in SF as it was a great experience and the pace of the run... More
