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 at "the cathedral".
Standard meeting point:
We will be meeting right in front of the main entrance of the Cathedral.
Main Plaza or Plaza de Armas
Google Maps link: The Cathedral
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 Cusco we have mild winters and warm summers, so weather conditions do not vary significantly. But it is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Cusco 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 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.
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 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.
IS MOST OF THE ROUTE HILLY?
Cusco was built in hilly terrain, and that gives us a couple of small uphill streets, but nothing to worry about . We always adjust the pace so everybody can enjoy the city.
DO WE RUN WITH A LOT OF TRAFFIC?
Cusco is a very busy city, and most of the sights we are visiting are within the city. We always try to avoid traffic, but at some points we will cross some busy streets and we need to be careful.
