I love running!
I love Edinburgh!
Why not combine both and share my love of running? That is exactly what I have done, in two ways. I have thought about doing the first venture or offering running tours for a number of years, and it was something I was really keen to get off the ground after I had done one myself on holidays; Rockin’ Running Tours in Memphis. What I found great about taking part in a running tour in another city was to quickly take in a lot of the sites in one hit, get a locals perspective on the city including some insider tips for the best ribs as might be the case in Memphis and get my daily run in at the same time. Win:Win!
Moving to Edinburgh was the perfect opportunity. Not only do I have a great job managing a great hotel in such a great location, Crowne Plaza Edinburgh – Royal Terrace; but all the main sites are all within a few mile radius with various options to extend out.
I have just started offering the tours and already getting some great feedback, so now it is just a matter of letting the word spread and start sharing the love. Check out my tours at http://edinburghruntours.com/ and follow me at @edinruntours on twitter. Share the idea with all your running friends, I’ll be so happy to show you or them around Edinburgh soon.
