On this running tour you can experience Porto in the morning before anyone else; with us you can feel the city waking up.
Departing from the city center, we will walk through the empty streets of Porto with the first rays of sunlight hitting the buildings. The runners follow narrow streets to reach the Douro River, the lowest point in the city, and as soon as we turn the corner, you will be spoiled by the most beautiful view, which only becomes even more unforgettable with the morning sun! A short run along the river shows you our bridges, the tram and the hustle and bustle of the city in the morning. We return to our starting point via some stairs, which will guarantee you a pleasant and warm finish.
The running tour also passes through the Art Galleries District, ending in time for you to have your well-deserved breakfast and enjoy the rest of the day in Porto.
Jennifer Guidry –
I booked two runs in Porto while vacationing in October. I was super excited to be able to continue my training for a Half Marathon while on vacation. Francisco was super communicative well in advance which made me confident in my decision to book two running tours. I am the only runner in my traveling group so it was awesome to be able to run with a guide who made me feel safe, welcomed and totally pumped to run while learning about such a great city! Francisco knew my schedule was tight and was able to guide me on a great tour of Porto in the wee dark hours of the morning (6:15am start) before sunrise. The second day I needed a longer run and we took a route closer to the water which allowed me to get a solid long run (and my last long run before my Half Marathon in the states). Francisco’s knowledge of the city’s history and athleticism were inspiring. He went above an beyond to make my time in Porto awesome even outside of my run by providing a few local favorite restaurants. His recommendations were spot on! I recommend Go Running Tours – Porto to anyone wanting to see and learn more about the city’s history in a friendly, casual and healthy way!! Obrigado Francisco! I will definitely be booking another Go Running Tour on my next travel whether abroad or state side!
