What you'll do

Join me for a run in Porto!

I've designed a unique and safe 6 mile (10km) flat circuit for us to discover Porto's charms on.

We'll see alternative landmarks that the regular tours don't​ reach, and I'll explain to you the history of these notable sights such as the Casa da Musica, our start point.

We won't run through places full of tourists; instead, we are going to explore some authentic Porto neighbourhoods, and I'll share plenty ​of​ interesting facts and curiosities about the city.

If you prefer to run another distance, need a pleasant apartment to stay in, or are interested in a different Experience, perhaps even a walking tour, click on my profile photo for more information.

Come with me, and let's run where the Tripeiros (Porto Local People) run!
Other things to note
You'll need to be able​ to run 10km (6.21 mi) on at list 1:30hs.

Hi, My name is Thiago Costa.

I am an Airbnb Guest,​ Superhost, and an expert local tour guide here in beautiful Porto.

I became a jogging runner in 2005, running distances that go from 3 to 13 miles (5km up to 21km).

I have traveled to 27 countries and to over 150 cities around the world and love to explore the places I'm visiting by running.

Besides that, I do my usual street running in my home city, Porto, four times a week, and always discover something new that I can share with you during our jog/run.

Where you'll be

Porto has much more to present that only the historical center. We're gonna start our run in front of Casa da Musica, in the heart of the Boa Vista neighborhood, where the modernity of the new commercial and hotel buildings meets the 19th-century architecture of the former Portuguese bourgeoisie houses, passing thru the Municipal Park, till reach the Ocean and then towards the Douro River estuary​ and finishing inside a local fishermen's harbor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 13 reviews.

Great experience running with Thiago in a previously unfamiliar part of Porto. Thiago was knowledgeable, friendly and thoughtful. He also kept a good pace, so I felt like I got a good workout!

SUPER Expérience ! Je recommande vivement ce tour pour toux ceux qui souhaitent découvrir la ville de Porto autrement ! Nous sommes passés devant des lieux à Porto que je n'imaginais même pas. Pendant ce tour, nous découvrons la vraie vie quotidienne des portugais et non pas seulement les points touristiques remplis de touristes. Lors du circuit de course, nous découvrons des paysage variés passant par la nature et la modernité de la ville. Thiago s'adapte aux personnes pour la rapidité de la course et il est très attentionné à notre sécurité. C'est une personne très convivial, passionné et chaleureux qui ne manque pas d'expliquer quelques anecdotes et nous partage sa connaissance historique de la ville. MERCI Thiago !

Fiquei impressionado com o running tour que fiz na companhia do Thiago. Foram 10 km surpreendentes, com uma parte da cidade normalmente não visitados pelos turistas, um parque maravilhoso terminando na praia junto a foz do Rio Douro. Recomendo, pois td foi perfeito.

Thiago is an amazing host. I always feel like running is the best way to see a new city & Thiago showed us sides of Porto we would’ve never seen alone. We enjoyed fabulous conversation while we ran (we kept a pace that allowed for conversation but was still a workout) & he explained many facts about the city. He truly loves his city & made us feel very welcome. At the end of the run, Thiago provided us bottles of water and also gave us a map of Porto. He traced the route we ran on the map and also suggested his favorite sights and places to eat & drink throughout the city. It was truly a delightful experience & highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun run while in Porto. Five stars!
