More sightseeing on the run

Last summer we wrote about City Running Tours, which offers guided running tours for sightseers in New York, Chicago and now several other US cities too. Turns out there’s also a similar venture in Rome that provides running tours in multiple languages. Sight Jogging offers visitors to Rome a selection of 14 different routes to choose from, led by experienced trainers who hail from a variety of countries and speak many different languages. One popular route is a 6.2-mile tour culminating at St. Peter’s Basilica, for example; another is 5.2-mile jaunt to the Villa Borghese. All routes are rated for duration, difficulty level and types of attractions covered (“artistic and historical,” for example), and guides can tailor the route and pace to the runners’ ages and fitness level. Sight Jogging lends heart-rate monitors to all runners at no extra charge, and baby strollers and bikes are also available for those who’d rather not run. Prices range from EUR 70 for one person up to EUR 140 for four. In this era of health-consciousness and multitasking, it’s no surprise that running tours are catching on. One to bring to a tourist destination near you! Spotted by: Bjarke Svendsen
