If you’re a runner and you find yourself in a different city, what do you do? You could map out your own route. You could ask someone if there are any good trails nearby. Or — if you’re headed to the Vancouver area — you could hook up with Pacific Running Guides, which offers guided running tours to local and visiting runners.
You can choose among three different options:
- Scenic City: run through scenic and/or historic sections of town.
- Energizer: new runners can team up with a personal trainer in Vancouver’s outdoor “gym” to help create their exercise program.
- Off Road Adventure: trail runners rejoice! The area boasts over 20 miles of off-road goodness.
Afraid you may slow the pack? Don’t worry, the guides are experienced at dealing with runners of different fitness levels and paces. Happily, PRG supplies towels, bottled water, sports drinks, energy snacks, (and transportation if needed) for your tour. Happy trails!
