Run Cape Town – Sightseeing on the Run offers a bunch of trail and tar running tours around the beautiful Cape Town and peninsula. All of our running guides are locals, as well as being accredited tour guides, thus you get to learn about the history, culture & current happenings of the area you are running through, whether from up on high on the mountain or at ground level through the streets.
Choose from a historical run through the city to orientate you to the city’s layout, allowing you to run through history to learn about the founding of the Cape Colony & to visit important historical landmarks, beautiful gardens and historical neighbourhoods; or get off the beaten track and into nature to enjoy unforgettable views of the entire city from beautiful single track paths on the mountains or in the forests eg. Table Mountain and Lion’s Head.
Our routes are generally 8 – 12km, with slightly shorter routes on the trails where the paths may include more elevation and more technical/rocky bits, however all routes are adaptable to your desired distance. The idea is to run at your pace, so our running tours are for everyone who enjoys running – no particular speed or experience in running necessary! Our guides carry water for guests and take pics as we run, so all you need to bring is your running gear.
Our tours generally take 1.5 – 2 hours and are round trips, starting / finishing at the same spot. Where possible we meet at your place of accommodation and run from there, however at times it is necessary to meet at a pre-arranged meeting point on the running route.
Grab your running shoes & join us for an authentic, active Cape Town adventure, exercising your body & mind at the same time!
