I was in San Antonio for business and decided to register for the 5K run through the city. Even though I was the only participant on a rather cold November evening, Tina was highly professional and explained many stories and anecdotes about the city. She is very friendly and has a genuine passion about running and about her city. I would highly recommend to spend 1.5 hours running along the river, even to business people who stay few days in town.
Great experience! Next time I will come with all the family!

I'm attending a conference and our organizers are brilliant and hired River Run City to lead a 5k before sessions started. What a terrific way to start the morning. A little history with some extercise. Our guides were knowledgeable, friendly and were experts at keeping all ability levels together. Make sure you schedule this run early on in your trip.

The tour isn't just the River Walk. It takes you to important areas around the city and gives you a taste of the stops you might want to go back and spend some time. It would be a great tour to do early in the trip to get a feel for the city. Tommy and Tina are knowledgeable about the city and also were able to give me a restaurant recommendation outside of the city that was delicious.

Loved the 5K running tour of San Antonio. They are very knowledgable on the city history and you could feel how much she loved San Antonio through the stories and experiences at each stop. I also really loved that the tour took us to many places off of River Walk, places that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Highly recommend this - such a fun way to get in some excersice and see the town!

Great way to wake up to the day- a little running and a some local history! Theresa and Kelly are awesome- they kept this novice runner up to speed. Well versed in local lore and history as well as great running companions. I highly recommend adding this to your itinerary when you visit the River City. I know I'll be doing it again!

Thanks again for everything Theresa and Kelly!
