The reason I started my own running tour company in Porto
It was during 2015 that Porto Running Tours project became reality and started out as a micro local business to help runners get familiarized with Porto in the north of Portugal. As a former corporate employee, I occasionally travelled to other cities in Europe, as part of the job and always found it difficult to plan my runs ahead, in a new city. So I always ended up running in circles near the hotel I was staying. When starting to think about a new career path, I realized this dream of starting my own company which is, environmentally friendly, healthy and a fun activity - combining 2 of my favourite activities: running and meeting new people.
The top reasons to why I think you should book a running tour in Porto
During a running tour, you see and learn twice as much in half the time (when compared to walking tours). And you get to share a good workout with a like-minded person, boosting some endorphins as you run Porto together. Porto is a very compact city, therefore we will be able to cover the most beautiful sites, viewpoints and monuments during this 10k run.
What should I do/visit after doing my running tour in Porto?
There is a lot to do and enjoy when in Porto. You can, for example, go for a wine tasting experience over at one of the 16 Port Wine lodges across the river, take the historic tram to the river-mouth and walk along the oceanfront all the way to the city park. Or why not enjoy the sunset at the beach or replenish your energy levels at lunch with a Francesinha (traditional hot sandwich for meat lovers). Visit the amazing Palácio da Bolsa - home of the merchants association of Porto. Or enjoy a cimbalino (cup of coffee) at one of our historic cafes.
