TORONTO Running Tours

A lot has to happen in two centuries for a sparsely populated, lakeside settlement to grow into a metropolis that consistently ranks among the world's most livable places. Remarkable (but not always well-intentioned) people and circumstances built Toronto in a relatively short time. At City Running Tours, we retrace their steps through our well researched and expertly led, guided running tours. 

Eclectic neighbourhoods, diverse culture and a remarkably colourful history are just a few of the reasons Toronto welcomes more tourists than any other Canadian city. With clean, well maintained streets, an extensive network of ravines & trails and a newly revitalized waterfront that's part of the largest continuing urban project of its kind in North America, Toronto is perfectly suited to runners of all abilities.

About TORONTO, ON

Established in 1793 as the Town of York, the small community on the banks of Lake Ontario still housed less than 750 residents when 1,700 American soldiers on 14 armed vessels entered its harbour during the war of 1812, looting residences and burning important buildings as they overran the town. 

In the 200 years since, Toronto more than recovered, becoming North America's fourth largest city, supporting a population nearing three million inside the city limits alone.

One of the most multicultural centres on the planet, Toronto is home to an eclectic collection of neighbourhoods, connected by a well maintained network of sidewalks, trails and ravines.  Nestled on the banks of Lake Ontario, Toronto's climate is milder than most other Great Lakes communities, making it an ideal running destination nearly any time of year.

City Running Tours Toronto was established in 2016.


As an Irish person who had just arrived in Toronto for a holiday, I was brought along on Dan’s Irish History running tour with a friend who lives in Toronto. The tour was amazing...
— Karen, Galway, Ireland
I’m a born and raised Torontonian, but I didn’t hesitate to sign up for this tour. Everything I learned tonight was new to me. It was funny, interesting and makes me want to learn even more.
— Cathy, Toronto
I had two friends visiting from the States and we had a wonderful time on this run. Dan makes sure everyone is comfortable with the running pace and is a great story teller.
— Cait - Toronto
It’s not just that Dan’s knowledge is exceptional, somehow he manages to bring the story to life, rather that just tell the facts.
— Peter, Toronto
Definitely worth it! He came right to my hotel, couldn’t have been easier.
— Kellie, Michigan
Informative guide, good fun and keeps you fit too. Would thoroughly recommend the historic tour. Good value too.
