Awesome concept! I love the idea of combining exercise with sight-seeing. It's so much more fun:-) Philippa, the guide, is a great person and super friendly. She adjusts the running pace to your personal fitness level. She even took pictures during the run.

Had such a fun evening run, learnt so much about places I walk past everyday, some of which I had never taken note of. Gives CT CBD new meaning. Run CT is a must not only for CT visitors, but locals too. A fantastic, unique concept. Brilliant way to see CT on foot and keep fit.



Really fun way to see the city, definitely beats sitting in a bus for hours.
