What you'll do

Start the morning right with a private RUNVENTURE on a customized route through the beating heart of Saigon. I'll create a route just for you and share the best ways to beat the heat and run safely in this amazing place. You’ll enjoy the unique beauty of a city coming alive.
As we run past many of Saigon’s most interesting landmarks we’ll see people enjoying a morning cà phê (coffee), breakfasts being grilled over charcoal fires, and elderly ladies practicing Tai Chi in the shaded parks.
At a cool location, we'll snap some action photos perfect for capturing the experience and sharing on social media. We’ll finish with a fresh coconut and locally made, all-natural energy bar.
How challenging will it be? Only as challenging as you're comfortable with and you pick any distance from 4-12km. This experience will allow you to discover running in Saigon in a fun, safe, and stress-free way. Leave the question “where can I run?” up to me. I'll customize our route to what feels comfortable for you and we'll do it at a casual, conversational pace. We'll take breaks and walk at interesting landmarks and as needed.
I’ll meet you at your hotel in District 1 or at the Opera House if staying outside D1.

Hello, I’m Jeremy. A Canadian living in the fascinating city of Saigon.
Since discovering my passion for running on a trip to Peru, I’ve run in nine countries on four continents, competed in ten full or half marathons, and am currently training for the Vietnam Trail Marathon series.
On my first run in Saigon, I quickly discovered it is different than any other city I've run in (think Banh Mi stalls on sidewalks and 30-degree heat). In over 60+ runs through the city, I've unlocked the best routes, keys to staying safe, and found the most refreshing post-run drinks.
I love to start the day with a morning RUNVENTURE (running + adventure). Let’s lace up and have a RUNVENTURE together.

It was really refreshing and enjoyable experience here in Saigon! Jeremy also helped me achieve my personal goal contributing to a sporting event which was something special to me today effortlessly! I wouldn’t probably make it so easily and fun without his generous coaching or guide; he kindly tailored the plan/route for me and got to see the city from different angle as well! I highly recommend trying this experience if you’re in the city. Thanks so much, Jeremy!

If you like to jog or run, excellent introduction to the city. Jeremy knew his way around and made sure the run was tailored to my ability, as well as being very easy to get along with. Good conversation all the way, about the city and life in Vietnam, as well as all sorts of other things. Highly recommended.

Really really nice! Probably one of my best experience I had on my trip in Asia. Jeremy is full of little interesting tidbits about Saigon, and I learnt & saw things in a different light during the run than I had when I had walked past it myself before. Turns out I had already been at some really cool places without even knowing it until Jeremy pointed it out. If you want a bit of exercise while seeing the city in a new light, you should go for a run :)

This was an awesome running tour! Jeremy is friendly and authentic. He truly knows what the city is like for newcomers and provides great recommendations on where to eat and what to see. He also personalized the run to meet my mileage goals and catered it to cover both some of the city sights and some interesting places close to where I was staying. I had a great time and now am fearless crossing the streets (after he shared the secret on how it’s done). I highly recommend this tour for any runners or anyone looking to get some cardio in while in the city.

Such a wonderful way to see the city. Jeremy met me at my hotel with a planned route. He matched my pace (I.e pretty slow) and often checked in to make sure I was comfortable with with the distance and pace. It was a great way to get an understanding for the city. Not only did he point out some of his favorite restaurants, bars and coffee shops, he sent me the route and a list of recommendations afterward so I could find them again! Definitely a great experience!

What better way to explore many central sites of Ho Chi Minh than by foot! Later on in the week I ended up going to so many sights that Jeremy and I ran past. His knowledge about places to eat and explore was impressive for someone who’s only been in HCMC for 6 months, and I know his recommendations will get even better with time and experience. One recommendation: given the option, pick the 7AM run, as the air gets hot FAST in the morning. The difference in just two hours can be as much as 7 degrees Celsius.
