We started this Running Tours project 2009 in Barcelona. Robin, an enthusiastic long distance athlete and avid ultra runner stumbled over the new concept of sighseeing a city with running shoes. He was immediately enthusiastic about this idea and decided to bring the idea to Spain - or more exactly to Barcelona.
Robin, who always took his running shoes on his business travels in Europe metropolises for a workout. Many times he was lost when he tried to discover the foreign cities on his own on a run after work. He experienced very fast that it is nearly impossible without being a local or having a local at his side to see more than some main streets up and down. Running Tours Barcelona was born soon and Robin put in all his efforts to make Running Tours worldwide more popular.
Barcelona is of course the perfect city for a Running Tour. 2000 years of history, two World Fairs, the Olympic games in 1992 combined with some amazing architecture, rich cultural heritage and the warm climate makes the mediterranean city perfect for running. Robin and his guides love to show you their hometown. We are all passionate runners and love history in combination with running.
Robin was also the initial founder and later Co-founder of the Go! Running Tours network. Started in 2014, he now started his next start-up to bring Running Tours and other Tour Experiences to the next level.
Bringing high standards and quality of our Running Tours in Barcelona to many smaller and bigger metropolises. Not only for runners.
With RUN FUN SIGHTS
, we want that our guests will be able to book a running tour at any travel destination. Allen from San Francisco once wrote us after a tour:" I keep thinking that you have such a great business model. I travel frequently to new cities/countries, and wish I knew a "Robin" everywhere I go.".
Let us make this wish come true - plus many things more!
