“I'm hooked!”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

Jacquie arrived early to meet me at my hotel and even brought extra water for me. We went on an amazing 10K run through the Old Town, hitting all the high points just as the city was coming to life. When we met with roadblocks, she gracefully navigated them (literally), without missing a step. Robin had mapped out the run and it was exactly what I had asked for; Jacquie provided the perfect commentary and overview. I felt like I was just doing a run with a friend, a very knowledgeable one. It was the PERFECT antidote to jetlag and planning out where to tour with my family the rest of the week. This tour should be the first thing you do in Barcelona. Stop thinking about it, just book it, and you won't be disappointed!

“Running tours barcelona”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

What a perfect way to start the day in such a beautiful city! Robin "picked" us up at our hotel and we ran and toured the city for 2 hours. We learned and saw so much before the city woke up and the thrones of people arrived.
I recommend this tour to anyone ...walking or running because Robin was very accommodating to what ever you want!!!
Thank you,once again, Robin for such a great experience!! And for the follow up info!

“A fantastic guided run in the mountains around Barcelona”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

I had an incredible 21K run in the mountains around Barcelona today. It is the best run I can remember ever have taken. Perfect weather, a challenging route, and unique views all 360 degrees. My guide Robin was extremely nice and friendly - and a great storyteller too. I am happy to recommend Robin and his company to friends and runners from anywhere.

I will for sure book another tour with Robin next time I am in Barcelona - maybe even make this the purpose of my next trip.

PS - This is my first time to write anything on a website like this - but I just felt I had to share this with other people who like to see a new city - and its surroundings - on a guided running tour.

“Kills two birds with one stone - you get to work out and see Barcelona!”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

Robin was an amazing guide. He was waiting for me when I arrived at our pre-arranged meeting place. He was informative, friendly and the pace we ran at was very comfortable - we covered about 13k in a little over an hour and a half. It was a great introduction to Barcelona and with the aid of the tour sheet that Robin gave me and by using the app Sports Tracker on my iPhone, which logged my route, I was able to go back and cover the bits I wanted to again at a slower pace and with my camera.
