Break out of your hotel’s fitness center and tread your way through the streets of Manhattan (or Brooklyn or the Bronx) with a tour guide from City Running Tours.

Traveling to New York City this year? For about $50, you can jack up your heart rate and learn all about Gotham’s rich history with the city’s first running-tour organization. You choose your mileage, pace and company (solo or group run) and your running guide will show you the way. The Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Central Park, Greenwich Village and Broadway are just a few of the sights to be savored during this fun excuse for a workout. Cool down afterwards with the small booty the folks at City Running Tours give you, including a tee shirt, a nutritional drink, some running store discounts and the promise of a few digital photos to be sent to you later. On top of your adrenaline high, you’ll feel good knowing that a portion of what you paid will go to charity (St. Jude Children’s Hospital). Not sure where to stash the kids? This, my dear readers, is exactly what kids clubs are intended for!

City Running Tours are also available in San Diego, Chicago, Charleston and DC.
