Pick-up service from your hotel/apartment or another meeting point is possible and will be checked by the tour provider individually.
If your hotel/apartment should be too far away from the city centre or not close to the tour route, then we will meet you at our standard meeting point.
Standard meeting point:
We meet you at: Mustill Store Parking lot.
The Mustill Store Parking lot which is part of the Cascade Locks in the Summit County Metro Park, or at your hotel/apartment address in Akron.

The tour provider will get in contact with you to provide you with more detailed information after the tour was booked.
Please, bring along your mobile phone in case we need to contact each other.
DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
No we do not cancel our tours if it rains, storm etc. It is very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt - expect to run.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
In Akron we have mild to cool temperatures in spring & fall, cold winters, and warm summers. It is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Akron, so that you know what temperatures to expect.
During the colder months we always recommend people wear long sleeves and in winter layers of clothes and a hat and gloves, etc. as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos and for the guide to talk about the attractions. In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights.
IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
It is recommended that you bring your own water to the run and there are a few public water fountains along some of the tour routes, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot.
HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
The running pace is set on our private tours by you. During our group tour we run a pace of about 6:00 min/km or 9:30 to 10:30 per mile.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
Your tour guide could store a small bag in their car. Please request upfront of the tour.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
Yes, you can bring your camera and snap away. The running guide will also take pictures along the route, and if there is a certain place you would like your picture taken, then simply ask your guide. The pictures will be sent to you after the tour by email.
DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
We offer for our private tours an optional hotel pick-up service. The hotel or apartment building should be on or close to the tour route.
Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment or at the standard meeting point.
