Vad du kommer att göra

Outdoor and naturally socially-distanced, group runs are an ideal way to explore in the era of COVID. You'll get an instagram-friendly cross-section of Aberdeen, highlighting importance current and historic aspects of Scotland's third largest city. From ancient bridges and universities to cutting edge energy technology, runners will get to explore the city while working up a sweat. Over this 2-hour, 7.25 mile/12km tour, you'll see the oldest sites in the city, natural areas, parks, and the urban core, all while learning from and asking me any questions about the city you can think of. The loop is all paved, though there are road crossings (marked and pedestrian-friendly) and the option for a short park trail.

Designed for running, but open to bicycles if you are ok cycling slowly. Dogs and jogging buggies/strollers welcome.

Listed times don't work for you? My schedule is pretty flexible, so feel free to request a time that is not listed or send me a message requesting an alternate running time!

Other things to note
The pace can be set faster or slower depending on the group's preference, but no faster than 7:15/mile (4:40 km) and no slower than 15:00/mile (9:00 km). The goal is to run while still enjoying conversation, rather than push ourselves as physically hard as possible. There are two public toilets on route.

I've been exploring Aberdeen on foot for ~4 years and have run nearly every single road in the city (I've got the heatmap to prove it). As an avid runner, I compete in local races year-round and regularly guide small groups on carefully curated routes appropriate to their physical capacities. I have run in cities across the world, and make it a point to explore new places on every holiday. Further, as a US-transplant to the city, I am well aware of the highlights that tourists and non-locals would be excited by - I was in your shoes not long ago! I earned my PhD from the University of Aberdeen, and part of my studies link me to local history and architecture. I have experience giving outdoor tours, as well as public speaking and community development, and relish the opportunity to share my city with the world through running

Var ni kommer att vara

The group will meet at historic Castlegate, down to the harbour, and into Footdee - an old fishing village with roots dating back before the 1320s. The coast, with its oil ships alongside the wind turbines, takes us across the River Don to the historic Bridge of Balgownie, then Seaton Park, St. Machar Church, the University of Aberdeen, and ending near the start at Marischal College (the architectural highlight of NE Scotland).

Topher has an insane amount of knowledge of the area, particularly the history and architecture throughout the route. He kindly met me a different spot on the route and changed the day for me - excellent value for money and a great way to be introduced to the city!

Topher is a friendly and easy-going guide who has lots of great info and stories about the places we ran to and round. I'd recommend this to anyone, even if you don't run a lot. Its a great taster to Aberdeen.

Topher was a great host for this guided run around Aberdeen. He was superbly knowledgeable about the history of Aberdeen, and peppered the run with plenty of personal anecdotes. This was a great way to experience Aberdeen off the beaten track, and such a friendly person. Thanks for a great run!

Great experience. Topher took me on a scenic run through Aberdeen. While running he got to tell me historic facts and interesting stories. We had a lovely chat about different topics. And don`t worry about your fitness level too much, we walked a lot as well :D If you are a runner this is a must experience when in Aberdeen.
