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. Each day, week, month and year we get the opportunity to run with wonderful people from all over the world, and we look forward to continuing to make these connections by showcasing our cities through a common interest.
The Brooklyn Bridge is the most iconic landmark in all of New York. At any time of day The Bridge provides great views of Manhattan and Brooklyn and offers a look back at the origins of modern day New York City, when Manhattan and Brooklyn were still separate cities. This short run covers a lot of landmarks, taking you over the Brooklyn Bridge and back on the Manhattan Bridge, then through the streets of Chinatown and The Five Point Area, before finishing up downtown in front of City Hall.

The tour will be a casually paced run that includes both Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges parts of lower Manhattan and Dumbo. There are a few planned stops along the route where your guide will point out items of interest as well as good photo opportunities. This route includes the steep inclines up both bridges.
*The cost is per participant. Kids 12 and under are free.
Although this is not a race we do ask for your running pace so we can be prepared for different ruining abilities. More than one guide will be provided depending on group size as well as varied paces. Please do not worry – we will not leave you behind!
Your running guide will be wearing a City Running Tours t-shirt (weather permitting). Your running guide will provide water for each participant and will be running with a small backpack to hold any items that fit.
