Testimonials

I was in Nashville for business and wanted to run around the city to see some sights, but I did not want to do so alone. I booked a personalized running tour and I am so glad I did. The communication from the tour group was fantastic as they emailed me information about my guide, where to meet, what to expect, etc. Joe was my guide and he was phenomenal! He was so easy-going, funny, and knowledgeable about the city. He ran at my pace and I learned a great deal about Nashville from him. Thank you so much Joe for the fantastic run! I would highly recommend Nashville Running Tours to any runner visiting the area. It’s a great way to see some cool parts of a city.  - Adam C., Missouri


When I travel to a new city I'm always wanting to go for a run outside and check out what the city has to offer and avoid the grind of running on the treadmill. I just never know where to go and end up not running or suffering on the treadmill. That all changed when I visited Nashville and Joe from Nashville Running Tours allowed me to break free and not just get a run in but see the highlights of Nashville. I wish Joe and his crew were in every city I travel too.  - Garrett W., New York


As an avid runner and business traveler, I often found it difficult to navigate where to run when I’m in a new city. Through Nashville Running Tours, not only did I find a great way to get my run in, but I was also able to experience Nashville in a way only the locals would know. My normal 3 mile run was transformed into a memorable experience.  - Randi S., New York


On my most recent trip to Nashville our conference organized a group running tour with NRT. Thanks to the running tour, I was able to get a difference perspective on the city and see some new sites. This is a great way to get out and explore Music City and enjoy the company of other runners!  - John M., Mississippi
