TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Buenos Aires is a magical place! We will start the tour at the most iconic place of Buenos Aires, El Obelisco which is located in the Plaza de la Republica. From there we run straight to “plaza de Mayo” the place where everything happens here in Argentina. It’s from this place, the city grew to be what it is today, its where Evita talked to her people and its where the people go to protest against the government. All in all a place that is a very important part of who we are.

History is around the corner with our many old churches and buildings in Buenos Aires. You will see the typical cobbled streets of the city and the Bares where the porteños go to talk about Soccer and Politics. The two main subjects we talk about.

The old port that has become the “new city” will be our next destination. The old and the new become one and the river merges with the city and its people. We will cross the famous Puente de la Mujer or womens bridge. The unused docks have been turned into offices and restaurants but you can still see the original cranes that were used to load and unload the ships.

Our next stop will be Retiro and Plaza San Martin, one of the transportation centres of the Buenos Aires and one of the most visited parks with its beautiful trees like Araucarias and Jacarandas. Tthe statue of Jose de San Martin the genera that freed us from the Spanish crown, is also a must see as we run here.

Avenida 9 de Julio - the “widest street in the world”, we say is the last stretch of the tour and it is named after the independence day of Argentina. Usually you have to stop in the middle before you can cross it completely, unless you Run!!! We will see el Teatro Colon which is really beautiful and it´s said to be one of the 5 best operas and classic music theatres in the world because of its acoustics. From here is just a couple of blocks to Plaza de la Republica and Avenida Corrientes where all the most important theatres are. Our running tour finishes where it started.

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No, we do not cancel our tours if it rains, storm etc. Sometimes we have very strong storms with a lot of wind and rain, in that case we should reschedule the run. 

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    In Buenos Aires we have mild winters and very warm summers, so weather conditions vary significantly. It is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Buenos Aires, so that you know what temperatures to expect.

    During the colder months we always recommend people to wear long sleeves 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. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen (at least SPF 30/50), so that sun burn is avoided. A hat can also be very handy in summertime in general.  

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    We will provide you with bottled water during the tour. Also in some tours there are a few public water fountains along the way, 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 6:30 min/km. But it accommodates to the groups pace.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera/mobile phone and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer with 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.

tip  BOOKING TIP:
BOOK EARLY - GIVE US SOME TIME
We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
