Sightrunning is quickly becoming one of the most popular activities for traveling runners, and our quality brand is established and thriving in the locations these runners visit. City Running Tours was founded in 2005 in New York City.

Explore the roots of America through events that occurred in New York City from the time the city was an early Dutch Settlement, through British Rule, Revolution and the birth of a new Nation.  You will see how immigration influenced and made up the very foundation of the city.  People from around the world came at different times and for different reasons, but all left and continue to leave their marks on business, politics, food, neighborhood life and the very character of New York.
