What people think of Run Cape Town

“I enjoyed every minute on this tour. My tour guide Philippa took great care of me and explained me many interesting things during the running in terms of culture, history and local gossip.”

“It was a great run this morning through Cape Town, learnt a few new things, saw parts of the city for the first time and had a great time. Definitely to be repeated.”

“… physically demanding and informative at the same time. A great combination if you ask me!”
