TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

We’ve hit the pavement hard to plan the perfect routes on this flexible but focused 6k tour of San Diego. It packs in everything amazing about downtown & the marina that you want to see, without making your mind or feet feel too overwhelmed. There is a unique calming quality to this coastal city that makes this informative, inspiring and fun 6k running tour just breeze by, even when we’re winding our way through the bustling business district of California’s 2nd largest city! To go sight-running through everything downtown has to offer, check out our 10k tour that incorporates both the heart of the city and the beauty of the Embarcadero. If you’re looking for a slightly shorter and more focused tour, this is the one for you. We’ll still get plenty of action as we traverse through historic downtown on a customized exercise and education fuelled experience for you and your group.

The beauty of our private G0! Running Tours is the ability to build the run around your interests, and this tour is the perfect example of that. We’ve charted several different awesome routes that we can choose from that celebrate the different sides of downtown San Diego. If you’re into urban street running and old town history, we’ll focus our feet on routes that take us alongside century-old brick buildings like the Santa Fe Train Station and through the Gaslamp District and Little Italy. Even though this run will focus on the city streets and architecture, downtown is nestled on the bay, so we’ll definitely get to enjoy some of the sea breezes of the embarcadero as well. Your guide can also tell you how to best enjoy it after our run.

If, however, you’re all about being ocean side on your run, let’s take a calming 6k jog on our maritime route. We’ll still peek into the city and make sure to explore the streets of Little Italy, but this expedition is all about enjoying the lively embarcadero, marina, waterfront parks and Seaport Village along the bay. We’ll run through history, past pirate ships, 19th century Sailboats and modern military marvels like the USS Midway. On a sunny day, the bay is always full of boats, parks are spouting towers of water and people watching is at its best. From professional kite flyers and musicians to street vendors and artists, there’s always something interesting to see. As we run along the water on our journey, we’ll also enjoy amazing views of the city skyline and take some great pictures to remember your run along the SD bay. So, whether you choose to stick to the city, run along the bay, or ask us to combine the best of both worlds, this 6k (or so) is an awesome introduction to the best of downtown San Diego and the bay.

    DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    NNo 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. We will notify you if conditions do require us to cancel the tour.

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    While you can usually expect to wear a comfortable t-shirt and shorts, it is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to San Diego, so that you know what temperatures to expect. During the colder weeks 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.

    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 or 10 min/mi.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light. We can only store some small objects in our backpack (mobile phones, keys. etc.,).

    HOW LONG DO THE TOURS TAKE?
    This depends on the length of the tour (how many kilometers / miles) you choose and your preferred pace. This information is available in the tour description as a guideline.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Of course! 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. We have photo stops planned at the most scenic locations along the way and will also take pictures and email them to you after the tour.

    IS THERE WATER OR FOOD ON THE TOUR?
    We will provide bottled water and a delicious San Diego made “Perfect Bar” for energy!

    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.
