“Awesome experience”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

I completed the Tower to Tower private run with my son and his friend. It was such a visually awesome experience. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I was worried about keeping up with my kid. I quickly felt at ease when our guide made it clear that we were not going to run hard and we would stop several times so he could tell us about the buildings and take our photos. His knowledge of the history of Chicago and architecture was great. Of all the things we did during our visit to Chicago, this was by far our favorite. We still are talking about it a year later. On our next visit we are going to do Run to Wrigley and I will be prepared to be first in line!

Marlene, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience on tripadvisor. We look forward to your return and completing Run To Wrigley. Some highlights on that route include; the mag mile, original playboy mansion, Lincoln Park Zoo (where you can introduce your son to some of his long lost relatives) (yes I remember you have a great sense of humor), and of course Wrigley Field. As always, we'll keep the pace slow.

“Exercise and Learning!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I wanted to learn more about the city and I enjoy running so when I heard about this, I had to do it! Marlin is very personable, knows a lot about the city and you can tell he loves to tell it. He has a camera with him and will take pics and will email them to you so you don't have to worry about carrying a camera on your run if you don't want to. Its a 5K run so it doesn't take a lot of your day but you will learn a lot and get some exercise at the same time. I was there on vacation and this was a great way to still get my run in and still get to see and learn about the sites at the same time. I will do another tour on my next trip of Chicago. Looking forward to it!

“Great way to see Chicago!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

My husband and I have done two private running tours with Marlin. My favorite was the Devil In The White City run. Marlin was knowledgeable, organized, and friendly. His love of Chicago was obvious and infectious. Marlin carries everything you might need, including a camera. You just have to show up - so easy! We can't wait to return to Chicago to do the two other runs we need to complete the Marathon option.
