How the Tour Works

The running tour works exactly the same way as any other type of training run except we’ll be traveling to a new featured location each Saturday this spring. The local routes can be run at any time and in any order however, group runs will be on the event date. All you have to do is make a commitment to getting started. Not super fit yet, not a problem, use our map tools to plan a distance you are comfortable completing. Participation in the tour is absolutely free but only bib holders receive coffee perks.

  • Do I have to purchase a bib number to run the coffee house tour? No. Participation without a bib number is free, however, our local coffee houses partners have extended special drink discounts when you show your official bib.
  • Do I have to run a 10K? No. How far you run, walk or skip is completely up to you and your personal fitness level. Our course maps and street decals mark each mile on the route. If you only want to walk 2-miles, flip a u-turn at mile one and retrace your steps to finish your route.
  • Do I have to run the training routes in sequential order? No. Once each route is published it can be used as a training route at any time.
