Cycling tours are popular throughout Europe, but running tours?
That's what two members of a Dutch triathlon club had in mind when they formed "Tourist Run Amsterdam," a company that will launch running tours of the city starting next month.
Licensed guides who are also seasoned runners will provide "running commentary" as they lead tourists on 5-mile jogs through the city to places where cyclists and bus tours can't go. Groups are limited to five. Cost of the one-hour tours is 20 euros ($27 at current exchange rates), and includes a drink after the run and a city map. Details at www.touristrunamsterdam.com.
