In the event of dangerous weather (thunderstorms with lightning, extreme heat or cold, etc.) the provider will cancel the tour and reschedule you.
  • Arrival: Plan to arrive 10 minutes in advance.
  • Parking: It is strongly suggested not to drive to the meeting location, as parking is extremely difficult to find on the streets of NYC, and parking lots in midtown are extremely expensive.

  • What to wear: Athletic clothing and good running shoes
  • What to bring: A water bottle
  • Restrooms/ lockers/ changing rooms: There is no bag storage, so come dressed and ready to move! However, the guides wear backpacks and have room to carry small items like keys and phones — just ask during check-in.

Mike was an outstanding guide on our running tour of Central Park. He kept us entertained with his knowledge of the park, the surrounding buildings, and famous NYC people. It was a relaxing way to see Manhattan and we highly recommend this tour.


Despite the rainy weather, our running tour with Krisztina was amazing! She was so professional, energetic, and informative. Our pictures were even taken by Mike, who was also great. A+++


Our family had a fantastic time on the running tour. The guide provided great explanations about the sights we saw and it was the perfect way to start our day together. We highly recommend this experience for families visiting NYC.
