We offer eight different routes, including urban and trail routes.
Run Cape Town – Sightseeing on the Run is the original running tour operator in Cape Town. We have been offering trail and tar running tours around the beautiful city of Cape Town and the greater peninsula area since February 2013. 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 on the city streets.
Choose an “urban trail” or 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 urban gardens as well as world heritage sights and quaint neighbourhoods. Alternatively, 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 of Table Mountain National Park, on Table Mountain or 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, which we send to you digitally after the run, so all you need to bring is your running gear.
Our tours are offered seven days a week (*depending on the route) and generally take 1.5 – 2 hours. They are designed to be round trips, starting / finishing at the same spot. Where possible we meet at the guests’ place of accommodation and run from there, however at times it is necessary to meet at a pre-arranged meeting point at the start of the running route. If you are training for a specific event or would like to do a longer tour we can tailor-make a special route to suit your needs.
Grab your running shoes & join us for an authentic, active Cape Town adventure, exercising your body & mind at the same time!
*tours to the top of Table Mountain are only offered Friday - Sunday
