Good to know

Our tour starts and finishes by the War Memorial outside the Cathedral on Buttermarket, and is equal parts running and stopping. Your guide will be happy to answer any questions you may have or even take a detour to show you something that may be of interest to the group. The tour lasts approximately 60 minutes, though times vary depending on pace, optional detours and number of questions.

The tour is suitable for all levels of runner, from beginner to expert. We will run at whichever pace feels most comfortable for the group and nobody gets left behind. Our tours contain frequent stops so you will most likely be able to run further and faster than you would on your usual run.

Leave only footprints

We're committed to zero waste, sustainable tourism. Our tour includes digital group photos and an animated route video in the price.

"Absolutely brilliant way to see Canterbury. My mind was buzzing afterwards with all the information I learnt but also with the bonus of run. Recommended."

"We loved the idea of a running tour and Andy delivered! He was extremely knowledgeable and it was clear he had thoroughly researched the history and really knew his town."
