What you'll do
*Tour times are often flexible* Art & Nature collide on this full PRIVATE 6-8km (4-5mi.) running tour of the lush gardens, hidden trails and historic landmarks of America’s largest urban cultural park. Fittingly named after the first European Voyager to see the Pacific Ocean, Balboa is a place for explorers of all types. It is hailed as a place where history is majestic, beauty blooms, curiosity is cultivated and cultures come to celebrate. Our tour is a true escape from the city, while still being right in the heart of it. There’s countless things to see and learn among the 1,200 beautiful acres of trails and pathways the casual traveler might not catch. I'll share the parks intriguing 150-year history, full of captivating Wartime and World's Fair stories. I'll give insiders advice on how to continue enjoying the 16 world-class museums, 19 exquisite gardens and other attractions after your tour. We’ll run across the century-old Cabrillo Bridge, jog El Prado through the Plaza de Panama filled with local musicians & magicians. We’ll enjoy roaring fountains and flora from around the world, and jog over the colorful stone surface of the Spanish Village to the Zoo & so much more!
Water I'll have a small pack and can hold a phone/small items. I'll track our run and take pics for you. You can take pics…

I am also an active member of the San Diego Professional Tour Guide Association, so I can also give a tour standing on a bus, but that's not half as fun. Personally, I have a passion for history, running and have excelled in the hospitality industry for 20 years. There really is no better job for me than this! I am truly grateful to be able to create fun and memorable experiences in "America's Finest (running) City"!

Where you'll be
Once you pass through the storied gates of the California Tower, you're transported to another world. We'll explore everything the park has to offer. I could list all the things we'll see, but instead I'll say that I take great pride in the fact that when I run locals through the park, they leave with a whole new perspective and respect for it. A trip to San Diego isn’t complete without visiting Balboa, and there’s no better way to experience it.
