Sweat & Sightsee with a local runner to not only get your miles in, but also experience all of the highlights of Central Park in a unique way!


  • Escape the city on a run through the trails in the Ramble
  • Enjoy the tranquility and community created in Strawberry Fields
  • Watch the sea lions do their early morning laps
  • Run over Bow Bridge, the most photographed location in the park
  • Discover the rich history of the Seneca Village Site


'Nature first, second, and third -- architecture after a while' was the motto of the Central Park architects. It's hard to imagine that everything you see while running through Central Park was put there by design, but that's exactly what you'll experience on Central Park Highlights running tour. Enjoy a casually paced run through the Lower section of Central Park, including, Strawberry Fields, Bethesda Terrace, Seneca Village Site, The Reservoir, The Ramble and more.  The lower portion of the park features the most ambitious landscape architecture ever implemented in the United States and magically escorts the viewer out of the city and into a peaceful park surrounding.  There are a few planned stops along the route where your guide will point out items of interest as well as good photo opportunities. This tour is not a race and is suitable for all running abilities. More than one guide will be provided depending on group size as well as varied paces. Please do not worry - you will not be left behind.
