TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Hi, my name is Citla and I´m a certificated tour guide who also happen to love running. I´m the City Manager of Go! Running Tours in Mexico City, I’ve been guiding running tours since 2015 and I love the city, it’s a real pleasure for me to show the best spots and places while we run.

So, in these 8 kilometers running tour we are going to discover more than 7 centuries of history, we will visit besides “Zocalo”, the main square of Mexico City, Santo Domingo square a place with a combination of religions with the Dominicans priests order and the holy inquisition. Look into the XIX century in the Portals of the scribes or the evangelists, like the people used to call them. The scribes wrote letters for those who couldn’t read and write. Enjoy the smells of fresh made coffee or tamales while we run across the Alameda Park and discover its life through the eyes of Diego Rivera.

We are also going to see the impressive Monument of Revolution, designed to be a Legislative Palace for the senate of the Republic, nowadays a museum and a mausoleum. Let’s run, learn and enjoy sightrunning in Mexico City’s downtown and become a Mexican on our running tour.

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No we do not cancel our tours if it rains or snows. We consider only a cancellation if we expect a heavy thunderstorm or it is very icy. If this happens we will let participants know in advance either via email or by phone. It is however, very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt…pack some wet weather gear and expect to run.

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    Road running shoes are recommended and whatever you are comfortable running in. It is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Vienna, so that you know what temperatures to expect.

    In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen, so that sun burn is avoided. A hat and sunglasses can also be very handy if you happen to run on a really hot day.

    During the colder months we always recommend people to wear an extra layer in addition to what they would normally wear as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos.

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    Water is not included so we always recommend our guests to bring their own water on a warm day. On most 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?
    Not at all! Our private tours are customised to suit your running pace and we take all the time you need.

    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 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.

    HOW DO I BOOK AND PAY FOR A TOUR?
    All tours are booked and paid for through our online booking system on our website.

    HOW LONG DO THE TOURS TAKE?
    This depends on the length of the tour (how many kilometres / miles) you choose. This information is available in the tour description.

    IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT/RESTRICTION FOR THE TOURS?
    This is at your discretion. It is the responsibility of you as a participant to ensure that you are healthy and able to participate in the tour. Children under the age of 18 are the responsibility of their parents or guardians.

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.
