Saratoga Running Tours
Meet at iRun LOCAL for a 1 hour, guided running tour of historic and beautiful downtown Saratoga Springs. See Health, History, and Horses come to life as you run by historic mansions, the oldest hotel in Saratoga Springs, the local arts scene, the Saratoga Race Track, and where music legends like Bob Dylan founded the folk music scene.
On this small group running tour you will visit a few of Saratoga’s most iconic destinations, meet new friends, and break a sweat. Meet your guide in the heart of Saratoga Springs at iRun LOCAL at 425 BROADWAY. Come prepared in your workout gear and set off at a conversational pace for a loop back in time for approximate 3.5 miles. Experience the sights of the historic Art District, cruise past homes build in the 1800s, and snap a picture at the oldest continuously operating American sporting event - the historic Saratoga Race Track.

Can walkers sign up?
This is a running tour, so you'll need to be able to comfortably run 3 miles. We run at a relaxed pace (typically 9-10 min/mi.) and re-group along the way, so no one gets left behind. If you've done 'some' running recently you can definitely do our run!

Children of any age are welcome to run with their parents. Kids in strollers are free.
What happens if it rains?
We still run. All runs are held rain/snow or shine! If conditions are not to your liking, we'd be happy to reschedule you to another run if you contact us at least 24 hours before the scheduled start. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to re-book.
May I book a private group tour?
Absolutely - please email us with your requests at email@example.com.
