This one and a half hour A to B running tour begins at a subway stop in the Plateau and ends near St-Laurent Boulevard and Sherbrooke St., also near a subway stop. The tour goes for approximately 8 km (5 miles). There will be brief commentary stops every few minutes.

Participants are expected to be able to run at a pace of 7 minutes per kilometre (11 minutes per mile) or faster. That means they are able to run 10 km (6 miles) in just over an hour.

The starting point is right outside Mont-Royal metro station (there is only one exit from the metro) in the heart of the Plateau Mont Royal district. There is some street parking available, but we recommend you come by public transport as this is an A to B run.

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

How does a running tour work? Will we stop during the tour?

Running tours can take on two different styles. In the case of a group tour, during the run the guide will stop periodically to give commentary and to check in with all members of the group. In the case of a private tour for one or two people, the guide can talk as everyone runs together, but will also make stops for longer explanations.

I’m worried about pace. How fast do you run?

These are indeed running tours, and it’s important to make sure you will be comfortable with the pace and the total distance indicated. Each tour clearly states how fast you should be able to run, and for how long.

If you have any doubts at all, perhaps a private tour is more your speed! During a private tour, the guide will adjust to the pace that you are comfortable with.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Yes, advance ticket purchase is required. The guide will not be able to accept payments on site. Also, to maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.

What do we do in case of bad weather?

The tours are held rain, shine, or snow. We advise you to check the forecast the morning of the tour and dress appropriately.

Only in the case of a severe weather warning where the safety or participants would be put in question will the tour be cancelled.

What should I bring with me?

Other than appropriate running gear for the weather conditions, you could bring a reusable water bottle for use at water fountains, and personal effects. The guide will be able to carry phones, keys, and other small items for participants.
