TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Highlights include views most people either overlook or never get to see. On this running tour, you will run through the industrial era and to present day Buffalo where focus is on recreation and urban life. All along the tour, runners will enjoy amazing views of the city from the very edge of Lake Erie.

The best way to start the day is by running along Erie Canal Western End – the place it all began. New sights mixed with echoes of the past including the Art Deco City Hall.

You will see Canalside, the new fun place along the water. The site of concerts, group outdoor exercise, and much more! Also visit the Naval Ship Museum, see the Buffalo home of Cheerios, and answer some Buffalo History questions for some truly small prizes!

This is a small group tour, which means that you will run with other runners and we run at a comfortable pace. It’s a great way to meet fellow runners and enjoy the history and vibe of Buffalo.

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.
