What you'll do

New in the city and don't want to run just anywhere? Run where the locals run and let me help you to combine sightseeing of less visited sights with your sport training. We'll start our tour with a little stretching at the stairs leading to the Citadel Park. We'll be then running through the lovely park discovering old fortifications, tanks, modern art sculptures, rosarium and charming alleys. In the meantime, I'll be happy to explain to you the history of the place and its importance to locals nowadays. Then we'll move to city's most luxurious and beautiful district - Sołacz. When jogging in Wodziczki and Sołacki parks, we'll spot incredible landscape architecture, outstanding villas and perspectives. We'll also run to the board of Rusalka lake and learn about its origin. We'll finish after around 7k, 1 hour run at a public transportation stop so that you can easily get back to any place in the city you want.
Other things to note
This running exercise takes about 1 hour and it's a 6k-7k run. I always adapt my pace and distance to the slowest runner in the group.

Hi, I'm Szymon, your host, and with my friends, w're all running freaks. I attended multiple half-marathons , 10k and 5k runs. For living I work as an interpreter, tour host and tour leader and that's why I'd love to share two of my passions - sports and history, and create a tour that would take you on a journey through parks, lakes, monuments and modern art of my beloved city. My buddy Alex is a former member of Polish national team in archery - a true sportsman. Besides this, he works in gastronomy business and has his Italian food shop. Feel free to join us in our morning routine jogging

A lovely jog through culturally rich and picturesque Poznan parks. My guide Alex was very knowledgeable about history and had excellent English. He paused frequently to let me see landmarks and take photos. While the run doesn’t go through the city, it is a genuinely interesting route with monuments from the Soviet period, modern art, massive fort ruins, and a military museum (which you run past and view tanks, helicopters and more!) It was excellent value as they even include a tram ticket at the end. Alex also answered a few extra questions I had about the city as he works in tourism and was very helpful. I highly recommend!

A great way to spent a morning, get to know Poznan away from the center, learn about Poznan and Polish culture from a local and RUN and have fun! Highly recommended and I would do it again any time :)

Such an epic start of the day! It always takes me a little effort to make it to a morning run, but booking this experience killed two birds in one shot: I saw amazing places that I would have never discovered by myself in such a short time, AND I started a day with a pretty good workout. Now I'm feeling super energized and ready to explore (and go back to) the spots that we ran through. Thanks Szymon, I can 100% recommend!

The tour exceeded my expectations. I really got to know the city and see places I would not have otherwise found on my own. Definitely worth it if you are looking for an authentic experience.

Oh my god I so really enjoyed that run! I am a passionate runner myself and I really felt so confortable frommthe beginning! Our guide had the right pace for all of us, we could even had a chat while running! Such an amazing way to see the city - together with our charming, knowledgable runner guide - it was a blast! I will now always look for a running tour in every city I will visit because this one was just an incredible event and I highly recommend it! Thank you very much!

Marvellous tour! I've spent quite a long time in Poznań and Szymon was still able to surprise me with his itinerary. That was a perfect mix of an exercise and sightseeing. We've gone to the places I would have never even thought might be worth seeing. Wonderful park, beautiful villas district, nice lake - you will surely be the only tourists there. Thanks Szymon also for the tram ticket, it helped me to get back to my place!
