A running tour is a guided tour of Atlanta for the active person/group. Your amazingly knowledgeable tour guide will point out a plethora of Atlanta facts and history while running through the beautiful city. It's a great activity for those visiting Atlanta or those who live in the area but want to learn more about their home town.
Kristy Duckworth has been a runner for 13 years. Although she took a hiatus from
the sport in college (GO DAWGS!), she quickly returned to her running roots and
decided to sign up for a local half marathon. Since then, she's completed 10 marathons
and 10 half marathons.
A resident of Midtown Atlanta, you can frequently find her pounding the pavement all over the city. In 2011, she decided to merge her two biggest loves (running & Atlanta) and create Atlanta Running Tours.
What pace do we run?
Your pace! You set the pace and decide if/when/how often we stop to walk. It's up to you!
What if I need to use the restroom?
Let your guide know and they'll find a restroom for you along the course. There are also public restrooms and water fountains in Centennial Olympic Park.
I forgot my running gear! Where can I pick some up?

Atlanta Running Tours this morning was so fun with you! Thanks for the tour & goodies!
Carol – Atlanta, GA
I've done 2 runs with ATL Running Tours and both were exceptional! Each was much more informative than I anticipated, due to Kristy being a fountain of knowledge regarding Atlanta, in both current happenings and historical facts. I would HIGHLY recommend booking a trip with this company, no matter what level of runner you happen to be!
Mark Ward – Cedartown, GA
Thanks again for the tour this morning! i had a great time and can't wait to wear my shirt!
Traci Rose – California
Learned a lot about Atlanta running with Kristy. Atlanta Running Tours is not just for out of town tourists!
Lindsday – Atlanta, GA
I enjoyed running through the ATL with someone who could provide a little color commentary and show me parts of town I might never have gotten to. Not sure when I'm back downtown, but when I am I'll give you a call.
Pat – Fairfield, Connecticut
I took a 3 mile running tour with Kristy on a 4 day trip to Atlanta, and it was the highlight of my trip. Kristy is so friendly and welcomed me to the city. She was so knowledgeable about the beautiful Atlanta downtown. Even though I've lived in Atlanta previously, Kristy taught me so much about the historical buildings and sites. I can't wait to go on the 6 mile tour the next time I visit.
Aaron – Kirkland, Washington
Kristy was ridiculously nice and knew so much about Atlanta! My only regret is that we should have signed up to run with her on the day we arrived instead of the day that we were flying out of town, because she told us about so many fun things to do in Atlanta. I will definitely be back to sight see after finding out all about this cool city!
Salina – Marion, IA
The Atlanta Running Tour is absolutely awesome. I had an excellent run this morning, and I learned so much about the history of atlanta while taking the tour. Kristy is so nice and patient as I had to walk a bit on the tour. I would definitely recommend the tour for anyone living in and/or visiting Atlanta. I plan to go again when I have friends in town. Again, I highly recommend the running tour.
Tiffany – Atlanta, GA
I am a former resident of Georgia and I was amazed on how much I learned. You run by landmarks and places that you never knew existed. In addition, I was pleased to get in my morning workout while having fun at the same time! I particularly enjoyed running through Centennial Olympic Park. The route was very well designed and I enjoyed every minute of it. When visiting Atlanta, consider this a MUST DO!!
Brett – St. Petersburg, FL
She has the Southern Charm since she is a native Georgian and is very knowledgeable about Atlanta. Both my husband and I grew up in Metro Atlanta and as young children visited Atlanta frequently. But we have never enjoyed learning so much about the history of Atlanta and the beautiful walk around it as we did with Kristy. We give Kristy and her company 5 stars out of 5 stars for her enthusiasm, knowledge, and hospitality as Atlanta was once known for.
Rae – Jonesboro, GA
We did a 6 mile tour with Kristy through Atlanta. She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very personable. She has a great knowledge of the local history and had no troubles integrating that along the run. It's definitely a great way to get familiar with Atlanta, particularly if it's your first time visiting the city.
