About This Activity

Come run with us as we explore the landmarks and historical markers that make up Texas's Capital City. Austin is a relic of the Old West but the city has grown by leaps and bounds to become a beacon of technology and progressiveness in the South.

We'll visit Lady Bird Lake, the Capitol building, the Governor's Mansion, Driskill Hotel, Congress Ave. Bat Bridge, Paramount Theater, Historic Bremond Block and various other historical sites and hidden gems, while investigating Austin's new tech industry, green initiatives, entertainment hotspots and, cutting edge architecture.

This tour begins at 10 AM CST on the North side of the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, between Spark Fitness and Luke's Locker (200 Sandra Muraida Way) Austin, TX 78703

Event details and schedule


Austin Weather Forecast 

1) Is tipping allowed? Yes. While tipping is in no way required - your smiles are their own reward - your guides certainly welcome it if you wish to show your appreciation through a tip.
2) Will you cancel in the case of bad weather? The weather would have to be really, really bad for us to cancel a tour. We run in all weather, and we love it. We might cancel if the ground were going to be so icy as to be dangerous. In that event, we notify runners ahead of time and reschedule them for a future date.
3) Is there a place to leave my things? No, our tours do not have coat checks. Your guides can carry small items for you if need be.
4) What happens if I am late? If you are the only person booked for the tour, your guide will wait 10 minutes past the scheduled start time if they've not heard from you. They will make reasonable accommodations if you call to tell them you're on your way. If others are also booked for the tour, we will start at the scheduled time if we have not heard from you. If you call your guide, they will delay the start no longer than 10 minutes, out of courtesy to the other participants. We strive to make sure that everyone has the best possible experience with us.
